Just Sold in Bristow: 1 Car Garage Townhouse in Braemar for $270,000
This Braemar garage townhouse hit the market on May 29, 2012, priced at $269.000. It was a well maintained townhouse, but had no frills like granite counters, hardwood floors or upgraded appliances. The home was pretty basic, but in good shape. It did, however, have a large deck off of the eat-in kitchen.
The Buyers that chose this home saw it on May 31st and wrote an offer right away. It's a good thing they did because as soon as the offer was received by the Seller, we got word that other buyers wanted to make offers. Because the first Buyers in were serious, they wrote above list price at $274,000 ans asked for $4,000 back in closing cost help. My Seller accepted.
There was one hitch when the appraisal didn't come in at sales price. It came in at $268,000. However, Buyers and Seller agreed to a sales price of $270,000, and to keep the $4,000 in closing cost help. That meant the Buyers had to bring an additional $2,000 to the closing table, along with their down payment and other closing costs.
This Braemar townhouse made it to settlement on June 21st, less than thirty days from the date it hit the market.
