We represented the buyer on this sale.
We represented the buyer in this transaction. This home – which was a cosmetic fixer – was over 1900 square feet and had a guest apartment and an art studio… all things on our client’s wish list. Originally under-priced at $749,000, it garnered a lot of attention. The open houses were a beehive of activity. We knew there would be fierce competition. Within a week, 10 offers were presented to the seller and out of the 10, only 4 were given counter offers. Luckily our client was one of those lucky 4. She countered with gusto on price and no contingencies (other than a short inspection period). She got it! After all, this house had everything on her wish list. It shows that it really makes sense to “step up to the plate” when it’s something you really want.
Our client is busy sprucing up the place and hopes to move in soon. Turns out there were only a few minor plumbing issues and the rest was basically re-doing the hardwood floors, painting and some landscape clean-up.
If you have any questions or are curious about any other aspect of what we wrote in this email, don’t hesitate to contact one of us and ask… we’re happy to share information.
