Just Sold in Bowie, MD. 4 days. 45 showings. The perfect buyers!

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

Just SOLD in Belair at Bowie. Classic 1960s Cape Cod on Rockledge Drive has happy new owners. 

There's just something very special about a home that comes with some original detail and retains a flair of yesteryear that's impossible to replicate. It turns a home into a storybook. 

This classic William Levitt built Cape Cod had just that plus timeless and modern upgrades and a fabulous flat backyard that attracted all the buyers. 45 showings in just 4 days on the market resulted in multiple offers and a SOLD price 32K above asking. It was a charmer and a hot one! 

I wholeheartedly believe that the perfect buyers scored this home. Their offer wasn't the highest, but it was the best. There is a difference! 

We learned at the settlement table that the buyers "almost didn't bother" because they thought they didn't stand much of a chance anyway. This just goes to show you, you never know what's possible until you try. But that's a topic for another day.

Congratulations Andrea on this closed property, and it is so cute.  There is a difference between the best offer and the highest.   Usually the seller wants the highest, but some are more focused on the terms.

The best offer came with the smoothest transaction. My seller chose wisely Joan Cox!  Thank you!
