Another Braemar Home Goes Under Contract During the Holidays
If an agent ever tries to talk you out of listing your Braemar home during October, November or December because “no one is looking for homes at the end of the year,” put a plug in that conversation and call me. Do you know what is absolutely GREAT about listing during the end of the year? Let me tell you.
Buyers are still looking for homes. Even today, during our first snow storm of the season in Bristow, buyers are out viewing homes. And these aren’t looky-loos. These are serious buyers. There are fewer homes for them to choose from, making it more likely for you to get a better deal selling this time of year. There is also a definite “Home For The Holidays” thing that happens. It’s not just on the Hallmark channel. Nope. “Home For The Holidays” is a real deal. It’s powerful and it motivates buyers.
The last of my active Braemar inventory went under contract today, December 9th (2017.) The home is located at 10119 Orland Stone Drive. It was originally priced at $417,000, but the sellers recently improved their price to $409,850 when a competitor went under contract before them. The market had seen both homes and chosen the other. They could wait, but feedback was the home was priced too high. The other home had things that this one didn’t. That wasn’t going to change. The sellers understood and got real on price. When they did, they got more showings and went under contract just eight days after.
This Ballston model Braemar Courtyard home is scheduled to go under contract on January 5th. The final terms will be revealed when all the ink is dry on the deal. Until then, when you are ready to sell your Braemar, no matter the season, give me a call. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
