It was just over a year ago, while visiting their “for sale by owner” SunCrest home, when we met these sellers. You see, whether it’s our listing or not, our eyes are always peeled on SunCrest so we preview every possible property. If it’s happening in SunCrest, we want to know about it. This wasn’t a listing appointment, a pricing opinion, or a sneaky foot in the door; this was, well, just us doing our job.
We viewed the home, we visited, and when asked, we offered our opinion and suggestions. The basement wasn’t finished and the home donned mostly its original finishes and fixtures. When their home didn’t sell after some time on the market they decided to make some changes.
Through emails, phone calls, texts, informal chitchat at SunCrest community events, and eventual follow up visits to the home, our relationship grew. We continued to answer questions, offer advice, and loved the fresh and exciting home that they were creating.
Today, we look back at what the sellers have accomplished and the list is extensive and impressive.
- Fresh Flooring – New carpet and hardwoods (bring on the kiddos or pets).
- Wainscoting Throughout – The sellers especially love it in the common areas.
- Paint – Come on! Who doesn’t love the new house smell and crisp walls?
- Fixtures – We can bring the originals back if “level 1” finishes are your thing?
- Hello, Basement – Star Wars, NFL Playoffs, or your favorite TV series: take your pick. The Bose equipped 7.1 theater room is calling. Two other rooms are perfect for kids, guests, or hobbies.
Walking into rooms with nine-foot ceilings you’ll find the layout to be functional and fun. The kitchen is equipped with double ovens, stainless steel appliances (yours to keep), and a practical island that flows sensibly and seamlessly into the dining and family room. Keep it hush or you’re hosting your next get together. The master bedroom is bigger than you’ve got furniture for and features a four-piece bath—dual vanity, dedicated bathtub, separate shower—and the coolest closet you’ll see on your home search.
Low maintenance front and backyard landscaping with pergola, hot tub, and fire pit means more time for friends, family and you. Maybe use some of that you time hiking from the Maple Hollow trailhead? Just one block northwest.
We’ve been interested in helping the sellers since the “for sale by owner” days, so we were tickled when they put it back on the market and asked us to represent them. We think you’ll love this home, too.
