“Exquisitely updated and delightfully decorated.” That’s how other people might describe this SunCrest home, but that’s a little hoity-toity, ya?
We think it’s just the pure cool factor. Besides having some of the best of SunCrest-postcard sunrise views of Lone Peak and Timp-it’s just so easy breezy and full of light.
How about that dramatic dual entry staircase? Showstopper.
Gorgeous, real hardwoods line the main living area and beautiful, thick granite countertops are found throughout.
The master suite opens to the deck and the sky high ceilings make kickin’ your heels up after work enticing.
And that custom, oh-so-gorgeous barn door dazzles the downstairs that really doesn’t feel like a downstairs. After all, it is drowning in daylight.
That Trex deck is a perfect place to sip a bevvie as you take in those sweeping eastern views.The daylight walkout basement with covered patio makes entertaining a breeze.
Campfire? Light it up! Your friends will all gather around the custom gas fire pit and stained concrete out back to high five you at your debut ‘cue. That’s what we mean by cool factor.
“The appraisal came in low.” Those are five words you never want to hear in a real estate transaction. Basically, it means that a transaction was based on a home being worth a certain amount of money, but certified appraisers have evaluated the home and in their estimation, determine it’s just not worth that much. It affects sellers, buyers, and may unravel a mortgage company’s ability to lend money.
In SunCrest, as well as the market as a whole, we’re seeing more “low appraisals” in 2016 than we’ve seen in nearly a decade. Why? The law of supply and demand. When demand is high and supply is low, it creates a challenge for appraisers, homeowners, and realtors. Certified appraisers look backward to see what comparable homes have sold for in the past, and when prices are increasing as they have been this year, it can become difficult for appraisers to find adequate, recent comparable sales to defend the current sale price of a home. Although upticks and trends in the market can be considered, appraisals are really rooted in homes sold in the recent past.
If your appraisal comes in low, are you prepared to dispute the value? How about a second opinion? Can you support your value? Were the comparable sales the appraiser used accurate? What about things like view, upgrades, condition, and location?
We often tell our clients their house has to be sold twice: first to a prospective buyer who makes an offer, and second to the appraiser who must agree that it’s worth what a buyer is offering. With rising prices, the second sale can be more difficult than the first. Systems, data, and algorithms account for quantifiable data. Having a professional on your team who is able to defend, educate, and most importantly communicate the contract value may save you thousands in the event of a low appraisal.
Ever find yourself feeling cooped up and cramped in? You know the feeling: elevators, checkout lines, airplanes. Sometimes you just need to spread out a little and exhale. That’s what we did when we saw this SunCrest rambler.
We’re talking sprawling spaces to entertain, gigantic common areas, and bedrooms that ditch the small room trend you’ve been running into. One foot inside, you’ll see what we mean. The large family room and kitchen means meals, homework, or cartwheel competitions can all be done in one place.
The five bedroom, three bathroom rambler style floorplan keeps all your daily necessities on one floor, and plenty of space downstairs for whatever you need.
With over 4300 sq. ft, the floor plan is laid out so well that you can hop from streaming a movie in the theater room, to pumping iron in the workout room, and relaxing on the deck or hot tub as quick as you’d like. Room to roam, as it were.
The whole house has been freshly restyled and updated with trendy gray tones that are oh-so-hot in magazines, tv shows, and home improvement stores. Our favorite update? The main floor master with the spa like retreat and cobble stone walk-in shower, heated quartz floors, and granite counters with vessel sinks.
Although, the kitchen with quartz tile flooring, one of kind Brazilian granite countertops, high-end five-burner gas range, and professionally stained cabinets is a close second.
