Curb Appeal – The difference between listing your home and SELLING your home

When it comes to selling your home curb appeal, new landscaping, paint and a good cleaning can make all the difference.

BEFORE

 

AFTER

This home was on the market for over 80 days with over 40 showings but no one put in an offer due to the condition under which the resident was living.  Buyers have a difficult time getting past bad smells, dirt and disrepair, no matter the price.  As soon as they moved I got it thoroughly cleaned, painted and landscaped and it was under contract within 3 days.  Look how nice it turned out.

Snapper Village is a very popular community of townhomes and condos located on the corner of Sunset Drive and 117th Avenue.  I lived there for 13 years and really loved it.  Due to it’s location, size of units and amenities, it has always been a very desirable community.

With it’s huge community pool, tennis courts, pavilion and biking/running track, it offers a lot for those who enjoy outdoor activities.

 The townhouse I currently have for sale is a wonderful corner unit that backs up to a lovely landscaped park area.

Coconut Grove Townhouse sold in 13 Days

Congratulations to the seller of my townhouse listing as she just started a brand new life in her new home in Naples, Florida.  The move was a bit quicker than she had anticipated as we were under contract in 13 days.  Luckily for everyone, she had already bought her new home and was ready for the move.

The timing was perfect as the market here in Coconut Grove is bustling and the inventory is very low.  This 2/2 with 1,116 sq ft sold for $290,000.  The last unit in this community sold, by me, for $230,000. in April of 2011 and at that time we were thrilled as the market was still a bit iffy. 

I would say and I have been saying, the market has turned!!

Welcoming New Resident to The Courts at Brickell Key…

As I have said before, rentals are hot!!  Especially when they are located on the 26th floor of The Courts at Brickell Key and offer these spectacular water views.  I listed this condo for rent, showed it twice, and it was under contract within days with no gap in residency.  Meaning that, the owner did not lose one day of rental income.  Obviously priced right.

This 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath unit rented for $2,800. per month.  For more information and additional photos, click here to be redirected to my previous blog on this amazing property.
