What Better Thing to Do on a Gorgeous April Day than Sell a Braemar Home?

What Better Thing to Do on a Gorgeous April Day than Sell a Braemar Home?

12146 Millbill Court sold for $499,800 on April 16th, 2019.

On February 28th (2019,) I introduced 12146 Millbill Court to the market. It was priced at $495,800 and offered a near completely renovated home.  Everything but the siding and kitchen cabinets was new.   And the larger than average lot size for a Braemar home, sitting on a cul-de-sac street with a gorgeous tiered deck, well, I knew it was going to get eaten alive by the market.

Sure enough, after the first day on the market, two buyer agents had offers over to me. On the second day, as we were preparing to go over those offers, a third arrived.  The sellers had offers above list.  Buyers were offering free rent backs and having home inspections for informational purposes only.  It was definitely advantage seller.

The sellers didn’t chose the highest offer.  That offer had a home sale that needed to wrap up before closing on this one.  Instead, they made a modest counter to a full price offer they had received with no strings attached.  It offered a free two month rent back and home inspection for informational purposes.  (Take note buyers.  Sellers like certainty.)

On April 16th, this gorgeous home that will be a maintenance free zone for the new owners for likely a long time, closed for $499,800.  

What’s funny to me is that Mr. Seller was worried that they were listing too soon.  He was concerned the grass wasn’t green enough and the flowers weren’t blooming.  A very wise real estate agent (ME) told him that those things didn’t matter.  The green he was going to love was the green he was going to get from selling quickly.  The early spring market has been amazing for Braemar sellers.

There is still very high demand for Braemar single family homes.   Just got another under contract this Sunday after multiple offers.   And another yesterday with multiple offers than I just haven’t had time to tell you about just yet.  Have one you want to sell?  Give me a call and let’s get going.  Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
