Sold & Closed: Beautiful Subdivision Lot in Melbourne Beach, FL

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Waves Realty BK3246853

I met these buyers in Starbucks about 5 years ago.

They are awesome people who told me when they decided to sell their home in Viera, FL they would call me!

I see the husband often at Starbucks and we talk about a range of issues including the real estate market.

About a month ago he called me to tell me they would like to buy a lot in Melbourne Beach to build their dream home. This is a difficult proposition because Melbourne Beach has a limited supply of available and desirable (build-able) lots.

We found one that was under contract with another buyer. I called the agent to find out the contract she had included a contingency for sale of other home (known as a kick out clause). 

I advised my clients to put in an offer. We would know in 3 days. We got the lot when the original buyers backed out. 

We closed and we are now interviewing builders to finish off the dream.

That's great!  Back up offers really do work.  That's all it took to let the seller know other people were interested.

Great job, Jeffrey! I've never understood why local agents don't believe in back-up Offers - those kick-out clauses weed out the not-so-serious (or capable!) buyers, don't they?! 

Congratulations to your buyers and good luck with the builder hunt!
