Just Sold in Braemar: Two Finished Level Canterbury for $525,000
A full week before this Canterbury model in Braemar was to hit the market on March 1st (2014,) I was speaking casually with an associate of mine at Long & Foster in Gainesville. Chit chatting with fellow agents may seem like a waste of time, but it is most
certainly not. I mentioned this listing coming up and the conversation focused on it. She had Buyers that were looking for something exactly like it.
After a request from her Buyers to get a look inside before it hit the market, my Sellers decided that was a good plan. We told them the list price of $525,000 and let them in to take a look. It wasn’t long before we had a full price offer from them. A few details ironed out between Buyers and Sellers and this Canterbury was under contract before it ever hit the MLS on February 28th.
The home itself was nicely appointed with hardwood floors throughout the main level, Corian counters in the kitchen and an upgraded ceramic flooring in the owner’s bathroom. It also had a great lot backing to some trees, was fully fenced and had a genuine Brazilian Ipe hardwood deck. What it didn’t have was a finished basement.
There were no appraisal issues and no home inspection repairs requested. It was as smooth a transaction as a sale can be. It closed for $525,000 on April 25th.
If you are thinking of selling your Braemar home, I would be happy to provide you with a free market analysis of your home’s worth in today’s market. No One Knows Braemar Better!
