Just Sold

This morning was rainy and gloomy, but we were all smiles at the closing table. My buyer purchased this great home Lake Mary. He and his sons will enjoy this home and its close proximity to Lake Mary High School. Congratulations Bob!

Broker’s Open

Today I attended a Broker’s Open House Tour in Lake Forest. Three properties were featured, and the prices ranged from $665,000 to $895,000. All homes will be easy to show. Call for more information or a showing. 

Lowest Priced Listing in Lake Forest

This house has intrigued me for a year or so. It is owned by Fannie Mae and is currently listed at $315,000. This is the lowest priced listing currently in Lake Forest, and would be a good opportunity for a renovation project. The lot backs to conservation, providing a private backyard and lanai. Call for more information.

Buyer Expectations

Savannah ParkToday I met a previous neighbor to view a townhouse she was interested in. It was great to see her and catch up. The townhouse was marketed as a 3 bedroom home, which is what my buyer expected. However, the “3rd” bedroom was located on the main level. It was the first room off the foyer, closed off by French doors. It had a large window overlooking the front yard, yet no closet. The bathroom closest to the “bedroom” was a half bath. The only full baths were located upstairs in the two master suites. What is your opinion? What determines a bedroom? Even if it is not a county or FHA code, what would an appraiser think? Most important, what do potential buyers think?
