Under Contract in Two Days: A Tale of Unusually Fast Turnaround in Braemar

Under Contract in Two Days: A Tale of Unusually Fast Turnaround in Braemar

When 9528 Ballagan Court hit the market on Saturday, September 19th (2022,) I was cautiously optimistic that we would be under contract in less than two weeks. After all, my my most recent Braemar listing success had just closed the day before. That home at 12607 Cessford Drive had gone under contract in an impressive eleven days. Back in July, Braemar homes were lingering a bit longer.

The sellers on Cessford had done the pre-listing preparation and I put my professional marketing to work. Since the market hadn’t changed much for the better, I was thinking a similar time frame to Cessford would be fantastic. Low and behold, the first day on the market, the very first buyers through, were interested and wrote an offer. Woo-hoo! How did that happen?

Just like the sellers of Cessford, the sellers on Ballagan did the pre-listing preparation. It involved refurbishing a large deck, replacing carpet and putting LVP flooring in the basement, and doing the least favorite chore of every seller–de-cluttering. By the time the professional photographer was there, the house was smiling and saying cheese. That is the beginning of creating buyer enthusiasm.

When it’s time to sell your Braemar home, slow marketing times don’t have to be your marketing times. Reach out for your free consultation when a move is on your horizon. Helping Braemar sellers reach the top of the market is my speciality. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
