Just Sold

.
This beautiful 4 bedroom house got new owners today! My seller and the buyers got along so well at inspection last month, walk through this morning, and at close this afternoon. I got to witness all of the gifts and goodwill. A win-win-win!

A bet is a bet!

.
A seller and I made a bet about the appraised value of her home. I forgot about the bet until this morning at the buyers’ final walk through. She paid up, and then some! By the way, the house appraised $700 over the sale price. 

Showing in Terracina

Today I was able to show 5043 Fiorella Lane again. I was thrilled with the display of fresh flowers my seller had put out. Such a nice touch – and we are told an offer is coming!

Saturday Models

A few months ago a contractor told me about Saturday Models, a furniture warehouse in Winter Park. A few times per month the store opens to the public and sells furniture and decor from model homes. Today I got there early, stood in (a somewhat hostile) line, and rushed in with the crowd at 10 a.m. The room was smaller than I expected, and quickly filled to capacity with shoppers. I found lots of items of interest, and will be recommending this store to customers in need of decor.

And the bonus to a morning trip to Winter Park – breakfast at The Coop! Thanks to their Wi-fi I called it a working brunch.

Terracina Showing

.

I had a great showing tonight in Terracina. My buyer likes the finishes in Terracina, and the low maintenance lifestyle. This home is priced at $182,500 and is the lowest priced listing in Terracina at this time.

Today I met a buyer’s agent for a showing with his clients. The couple is downsizing and appreciated the fine finishes in this former model. I’m happy to show this gem anytime, as my client shows great pride in ownership. 

It appraised!

.

It’s always a relief when a home appraises – and this one appraised for $700 over the contract price. Once this closes later this month, I can disclose the value. We are now in the home stretch!

Building Inspection

.
Today the buyer had his building inspection. The contract was written on an AS-IS contract, which is most common in Florida transactions. These Terracina townhomes are so new and well built I have yet to have a contract fall through due to the inspection. Next will come appraisal and then we can cruise to closing.

Under Contract

.
I always want to succeed, but I REALLY wanted to succeed for this listing. This is my former next door neighbor’s home, and we successfully negotiated a contract today. Inspections, financing and appraisal will be our hurdles, and we are confident all will go well.

This 5 bedroom pool home closed today – and appraised about $30,000 higher than the sale price. My buyer is thrilled with the instant equity acquired today. With another $6500 in seller credits included, this is one of the best outcomes I’ve experienced. Congratulations Eric and Elise!
