This second-tier, private lake home owner has taken a bold move to sell this elegant historic schoolhouse quickly. Taking an unusual approach to selling in a down turned economy, the homeowner has announced a radical change in the standard listing process.
Originally purchased for $396,000 in 2006, the owner has invested a significant amount of money in upgrades. The kitchen has been plumbed for gas to accommodate the new gourmet stainless steel 6-burner Viking cook-top, the electric has been rewired for the handsome new stainless steel Bosch double convection oven, new creamy white kitchen cabinets with a brown glaze overlay finish, and Brazilian granite counter-tops to complete the look. New Tuscan Oak hardwood flooring was installed in the original school portion of the house: living room, sitting room, master bedroom, downstairs half-bath and both upstairs bathrooms. Fresh paint throughout, high end lighting fixtures, new track lighting, and new carpet in game room to name just a few. For more details on the depth of the renovations, as well as before-and-after pictures, please visit here.
Originally listed at $449,500 to recoup the owner's investment, the list price was later dropped to a whopping $429,500 in an effort to sell the schoolhouse. Although this rare property has only been listed since June 2010, the owner has decided to take an even more aggressive stance due to a pending job relocation.
As we know, most home owners begin with a list price commensurate with the comparable home values in the area. Often, over time, sellers will begin to lower their list price bit by bit to make their home more attractive to buyers. In the long run, the listing risks becoming "stale" and the owner appearing desperate, which inevitably results in seller frustration. Instead of playing the list price game any further, the historic schoolhouse owner changed strategies and is starting from the bottom --- beginning with the lowest acceptable price.
So..... Buyers seeking homes in the Kansas City MLS ----- make note of this opportunity to STEAL a beautiful and impeccable piece of local history!! The Rocky Point Schoolhouse will be sold to the HIGHEST BIDDER!* Opening bids will begin at $390,000, with all finals bids to be received no later than December 6, 2010, 5:00 p.m. All offers must be submitted by pre-qualified buyers (or representative agents) in writing.
To help further understand this unbelievable opportunity, feel free to review a random sampling of other non-waterfront Weatherby Lake homes for comparison, keeping in mind that the Rocky Point Schoolhouse is the only historic property of its kind in the local area!
