This John Wieland resale came to market and captured the hearts of fierce competitive buyers whose main mission was to find the perfect home. The home entered the market refreshed with new carpet, paint, professional cleaning, pressure washed, repaired, primped, glammed and ready for market.
The open concept kitchen with view of the family room with fireplace and expansive rear deck was a hit with buyers in the area. The Owner's Retreat is spacious with spa ensuite and separate vanities, whirlpool tub, glass enclosed shower, water closet and walk in closet. The community is gated with a tot lot, 2 parks, swim and tennis amenities, a clubhouse with catering kitchen, library and gym. No city taxes required as this home is in the town of Mableton which is unincorporated and provided with county level services. The home sits only 2 miles from Atlanta and I-285 , 27 minutes to the Delta ticket counter at Hartsfield-Jackson and is only 15 minutes from the home of the Braves!
The sellers received 5 offers, 2 cash and 3 with mortgage-backed funds. The seller pressed the market on this home and the cream of the crop of buyers came to the table ready to strike a deal. The winning buyer closed in 21 days of contract as only 48 hours on the market. In the short few weeks after this sale, neighbors used this listing as a spring board for pricing as the neighborhood heated up and closed on homes that are larger at 540k and 560k.
Sellers in the Legacy at the River line have done well in the current market environment as they had to play catch up to the large hit the community received during the 2008-2012 downturn where homeowners with tons of equity saw it crash with little control over the process. John Weiland Homes sold the remaining lots to Pulte, and it took a few years to sell the remaining lots while the market continued to stunt the equity growth for owners in that community at that time.
For the current market, there is no telling how long this hot streak will last as it is showing signs of slowdown as we enter the holiday season. A brisk market is anticipated after the first of the year but not at the clip we have experienced over the past 22 months.
After selling 16 homes and townhomes in Legacy at the River line, Jackye knows and appreciates Mableton for once again attracting hot buyers who are open to seeing what the area has to offer. More housing stock is being built. New schools have come online to support the influx of children in the area. New parks have been completed and are now open to the public. New businesses including restaurants are arriving every quarter and it's wonderful to see the change, excitement and revitalization of the area.
