Braemar Carriage Home SOLD… Again
Four years ago, September 29, 2015 to be exact, I sold the Norwood model at 13174 Kirkmichael Terrace. Though the buyers that ended up purchasing the home did come through my open house, they had an agent that they were working with. Even if they had not a buyer’s agent, my business practice is to NEVER do dual agency, which is representing both sides of the transaction.
In June this year (2019,) I was pleasantly surprised to get a call from those buyers that became the owners of 13174 Kirkmichael Terrace. They were interested in selling and wanted to hire me. They had been impressed with my professionalism during their purchase. Staying in touch with my Braemar Property Value Reports was helpful, but what sealed the deal for my being their future listing agent happened at the closing table during their purchase of the home in 2015. They recounted to me that when they were twenty dollars short to purchase a home warranty, and had no checks or cash to make it up, I reached into my wallet and handed the attorney a twenty dollar bill. I don’t recall this gesture, but they will never forget.
Fast forward to the current listing, which I was thrilled to get. They had certainly improved the home with granite counters, stainless appliances and lots of smaller updates to lighting and fixtures. We looked at the comps and listed on June 15th for $435,000. Our price was on the upper end of the comparable sales, but I don’t back down from the chance to sell for as much as possible. That is my job.
The first two offers on the home were not bad, but were far from fantastic. Being a sellers market, the sellers felt there were better offers ahead, so they passed.. The third offer was the charm and only took two weeks to come in. The buyer gave the sellers what they wanted in price and what they needed in terms of closing date. After all, the sellers were also going to be buyers and needed time to find a home.
This Norwood model at 13174 Kirmichael Terrace sold (again) for $437,000 on August 9th, 2019.
