Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

This is just one in a series of upcoming Posts For Localism By Jeff & Grace Safrin, F.C. Tucker Advantage Realty, Serving Northwest Indiana...on HOMES SOLD IN A MARKET THAT's NOT SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD.... inspired by Terry Rasner-Yacenda's many Posts! Please Feel Free to Join the MOVEMENT and Change the MILEAU - write about HOMES SELLING in YOUR AREA as well !

Community Walkway around One of The Neighboorhood PONDS

Greenfield Creek Subdivision, Valparaiso, IN

Homes around the pond in Greenfield Creek

Enjoy a leisurely stroll in Season around the Pond. There is a walking path & even a covered bridge :)

Welcome Home - Make Greenfield Creek Your Next Valparaiso, Indiana choice for Home Shopping !

A view from across the Pond - Newer Upscale Homes on large Lots grace this Development.

We Received a Referral, a Pre Qualified Buyer from a Local Lender here in NW Indiana.  This particular client wanted a Home that was MOVE IN READY, due to his busy work schedule and family commitments.

In our First meeting, we went over specific criteria including : Location, Price Range, Size, & Desired Amenities.

After weeding out homes that did not 'fit' via email and phone conversations, we went out on appointment to see the best and final picks.

Believe it or not, it pays to listen closely to what the client wants - because the 1st home we entered, was, a few weeks later, THE one that this client went back too and chose to write an offer on! Seems everything else we looked at was compared to the FIRST IMPRESSION.

Now, we have Listed and Sold Homes in Greeenfield Creek before. It is such a scenic subdivision in Valparaiso, IN with spacious Lot sizes and newer upscale homes.  I keep some common area photos on file to email clients looking at homes in this neighborhood.  Although only a few blocks compose this development, it has been well thought out. Most Homes here border either a large private wooded parcel, or, centrally located PONDS that have beautiful walking paths around them for community use...and even a small covered bridge :)

What set this home apart from the others?

#1 =  Location - Our client wanted a Home in Valparaiso  and Preferred Wooded Views .

#2 = Price - This Home was THE Best Value in the Subdivision According to Recent Comparables*

#3 = CONDITION - This Residence although 11 years old, beat out NEW CONSTRUCTION homes that we looked at because the sellers had the Home Professionally Painted in rich, warm designer colors AND had NEW CARPET installed on the main level.

Also, Professional REALTORS, that work well together, make for WIN - WIN situations for our respective clients!

The Listing Agent, was prompt in presenting our offer to Her clients. Follow - Up Communication between us, both post Home Inspection, AND throughout the PENDING Status until CLOSING was maintained. Every situation was mutually resolved, AND no important detail slipped through the cracks. In today's Marketplace, experienced, knowledgeable professionals, working together, make for successful cooperative transactions!

Grace~You do such a fantastic job on your localism and provide such comfort for many in your area to find the answers they need about the real estate market. I do so very much agree with you that it does pay off to listen to your clients needs. What a great example you are!

Grace ~ It seems you couldn't ask for a better way of having things go well (all the way around)!  It looks like a beautiful area and house.  I think it's a great idea to post about what has sold - maybe counter all the bad news we keep hearing about!
