We are thrilled that our listing in Accokeek, MD finally settled this past week. This was an important sale for us, because we took it over from another agent, and it was also a referral from past clients. This home was on the market for over three months, before we took over the listing. We encouraged the sellers to stage the home, and then retook new photos afterward to refresh the listing and attract new buyers that may have over looked the home previously. After going back on the market, we had an increase in showings, and we were able to secure a contract after diligent follow up with the buyer agent. The house listed by our team for around 40 days before receiving a contract.
In addition to selling their home in MD, we also helped these client purchase their new home in Virginia, through a coinciding settlement. While these types of transactions can be very tricky, juggling the sale of one home and purchase of another, let alone in different states, we worked closely with the clients to keep them updated every step of the way. This sale also reminded us the importance of working with an experienced lender, and how critical “effective” communication is between agents and all parties in the transaction.
Marshalls Venture sold for $330,000 with seller subsidy. This was a new home, only four years old, but did have some challenges to include: only three bedrooms on upper level, and an unfinished basement. The home did have an open floor plan, bright sunroom off kitchen and was position on one of the larger lot (.46 acres) and backed to trees for added privacy. Other homes in the nearby by have sold for $315,000-$399,000+ depending on their size, condition and amenities.
