Another Braemar Four Bedroom Home SOLD!
Selling Braemar homes is my favorite thing to do in my career. Helping my neighbors get top dollar for their homes is a great feeling. While I do sell in the larger area of Bristow and Gainesville, my involvement in my sub-association and the shorter stint on our larger HOA gave me knowledge of our community that I could not have otherwise received.
In late March I was contacted by home sellers on Chapeltown Mews that knew they would be relocating over the summer. They wanted to make sure they consulted with a listing agent to prep their home for the market and have an idea of what they could reasonably expect to get for their home. During our consultation, we signed our listing paperwork, but delayed the marketing date to May 16th. Very few sellers ever choose to list immediately. When we do our paperwork, we usually pull out a calendar and find a date that works to hit the MLS, giving the sellers enough time to complete any projects or prep.
We hit the market on May 16th and my sellers started getting calls to show the home. That’s always a good sign. Within four days, we sat down to review three offers that had come in. That’s right, my sellers had multiple offers in four days. That is how a seller is rewarded when they do the listing preparation to show their home in the best possible condition.
May 20th my sellers were under contract. After a small list of home inspection repairs, an uneventful appraisal and termite inspection, there was nothing left to do but wait for settlement day. That happened on July 8th (2016.) Their home at 13625 Chapeltown Mews sold for full list price of $479,000 with no closing cost help to the buyers. They signed their paperwork and hit the road for the trip to their next home state.
When you are ready to sell your Braemar home, hiring an agent that knows how to market the neighborhood, and your home within it, is of the utmost importance. Give me a call for a free market analysis. No One Knows Braemar Better!
