I’m very excited to have sold a home in South Run in a very short amount of time. I wish I could take all the credit by pointing out my mad skills as a real estate agent and aggressive marketing but the sellers share in the success. They insisted on a higher price than I would have liked but they did have an exceptionally fine home to sell. Despite the opinion of real estate agents in general, we do not KNOW for sure what’s going to happen. Market knowledge and past experience guide us but there is no absolute certainty. One of my weaknesses and strengths is trusting my clients. Not the wild “I want to win the lottery” dream price but when they are well thought out have a rationale, I’m fine sharing my opinion but still shooting for their goal.
We listed the home for $62,000 higher than any other recent comparable sold home and got a full price offer within two days of actually listing the house for sale. We did have a couple of weeks to pre-market the home online, get professional photographs taken and a video completed, which can be seen here.
If you live in South Run you should know that now there’s such a great comp and more coming, that your home may be worth more. I think this sale is the highest price home sale in the South Run subdivision in the last six or seven years! Since this home went under contract, even the conservative agents who normally work in South Run have started listing homes much higher than they have in the past. One at just under $900K and another at $914K (and some change). The market has been booming for the last year or so and it’s fantastic to see it in the price range I seem to find myself in these days!
