Although most of our home sales in Fairview are within the Lovejoy ISD school district, we normally sell 4-5 Fairview homes in McKinney ISD every year. Those usually take longer to sell since Lovejoy is such a big draw, but that’s not always the case. A lot of it depends on the price and desirability factor of the home itself. 660 Lakeridge had both going for it.
Here’s why this home sailed through without any issues.
- It was priced at $549K which is attractive for any home in Fairview sitting on acreage and this lot is 1.8 acres in size.
- The lot was also heavily wooded. I often say “trees are king” out here because that’s the one feature most buyers are looking for in the way of a lot. Wooded creek lots were the first to be built upon when Fairview started to become developed so if you want trees, you have to buy an existing home.
- It was only 2,904 SF in size with three bedrooms which is considered a smaller home for this area, but that’s also the reason it was priced so attractively. Homes coming out of the ground in Fairview today are usually a minimum of 4,500 SF with four bedrooms so this was a fairly rare opportunity for someone who didn’t need all the size and bedrooms.
- The home had a lot of charm and feels like a cabin with all the woodwork and wrap around back porch. It will require updating but that’s expected on a 28 year old home. It had great bones, as they say.
So this was a win/win for both the buyer and seller. Jennifer Hurst, one of our newest agents, did a great job on the transaction and was told by the sellers she’d be their agent for life.
These are the kind of transactions we love. Everyone’s happy. If you’re interested in seeing more about the home, here’s the LINK.
