This is a funny business. Not “ha ha” funny, but strange funny.
Sometimes you think the properties that will take the longest to sell go under contract quickly and the ones you think will sell quickly seem to languish. What’s frustrating is many times we agents just can’t figure out why. There’s just no rhyme or reason although timing has a lot to do with it.
The first property below, 505 Greenville, Allen, is one we thought would take awhile, at least until next year. Not only is it under contract, we had three offers working on it, two from developers and one from a buyer who was going to live in the home.
To have three deals working on a unique home here in mid-November is pretty amazing. We like to think that’s a testament to our marketing but we also know the positive vibes are reverberating through the real estate market right now. Of course, “it’s never a deal until it’s a deal”, so we’ll see if it closes.
If the home reminds you of Southfork Ranch in Parker, it’s not a coincidence. The same architect designed both homes. The home is in great shape, it just needs updating. The home and 9 acres are priced at $2.995 Million
