Listing your house for sale is often a balancing act — determining what price is acceptable in exchange for a shorter time on the market. But the right house, in the right neighborhood for the right price, can sometimes sell quickly for full list price. Such was the case with this home, according to listing agent Amanda Drake with Drake Real Estate.
“When a home is priced right, the buyers will come,” said Drake. “That’s why this home had multiple offers, and a full price offer was delivered during a very active open house. Our inventory in Killearn Lakes has been low this summer, especially in the price range below $250,000.”
According to Drake, the house’s neighborhood, Killearn Lakes, was a huge selling point, providing gorgeous natural settings, a park and playground, sidewalks and bike trails, and proximity to some of the county’s best schools. Additionally, the Southern-style pool home’s layout and upgrades (including a private backyard and a new roof and HVAC system) enticed buyers even more.
The home’s four bedrooms are split between two stories, with the large master suite on the bottom floor and the other three above, sharing a bathroom. The master bath had such luxurious touches as double vanity sinks, a garden tub and separate shower. The inviting great room enjoys plenty of natural lighting from skylights, and the wood-burning fireplace is just another touch bringing the outdoors in. Outside, the pool and brick built-in grill provide an enjoyable, relaxing outdoor living space.
When asked what she thought charmed the buyers enough to offer full list price, Drake replied: “The location, size of the home and the pool played a part. The other buyers interested in the home liked the Southern style of the home and the pool as well.”
