Another Braemar Home Under Contract After Multiple Offers
On March 6th (2020,) I had the pleasure of introducing 12157 Millbill Court to the market. The sellers had done kitchen and bathroom updates in the last two years. Before listing they had new carpet installed and worked on de-cluttering and staging the home so would be ready for its professional photo shoot.
While Mother Nature gave us a drizzly and cloudy day for the photo shoot, it didn’t matter. The interior of the home was smiling widely. The listing was put in the MLS as “coming soon” and the throng of buyers and their agents was unleashed on my cell phone.
There is no getting into a “coming soon” listing before it becomes “active.” A listing agent who allows anyone to tour a listing that is coming soon can be subject to a $5,000 fine in our marketplace.
On Friday, March 6th, the listing rolled to active and the showings commenced. The very first schedule request we had, toured the property on the 6th and wrote an offer as soon as they left. Even having an offer that first day, my sellers wanted to wait to review offers until the weekend was over. By that time, they had three offers.
To say there is intense buyer demand in Bristow is an understatement. At present, the coronavirus has only impacted our market in that mortgage interest rates are getting even lower, heightening buyer demand even more. Of course, the Micron expansion in Manassas continues to be a major economic force, bringing more employees to the area.
This Braemar home will go to settlement on April 30th. You’ll have to stay tuned to this blog for the final sold price. In the meantime, if you want to sell during this time of intense buyer demand while prices are soaring, I am here to help. Call me for a free consultation on how to get the best results. Even in a seller’s market, the agent you hire makes a difference to your bottom line. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
