Lots of Buyers Looking in the Hamlet

Busy weekend in the McLean Hamlet with buyers visiting open houses.

Open house held on March 10, 2019

There were lots of buyers interested in purchasing homes in the McLean Hamlet this past weekend. The photo above was taken outside an open house. The seller of that home reported they received 8 contract offers, and will be selling above list price.

All of the open houses were busy over the weekend. In my opinion, three of the homes were under-priced, and one was overpriced.

Check back later this week for updates as these homes receive contracts, and if you want to live in the McLean Hamlet, contact me for vital information to help you win in a heated market.

7920 Falstaff Road Open Saturday

New listing for sale in the McLean Hamlet.

The home at 7920 Falstaff Road has been listed for sale this week by the Huckaby Briscoe Conroy Group of Keller Williams McLean. It will be open on Saturday from 1-3 pm.

The home is listed for $875,000. In my “McLean Hamlet Real Estate Guide”, this price is indicative of a home in mostly original condition, or a property that is more suited for construction of a new home.

Buyer Alert: Properties Coming Soon in the McLean Hamlet

I am aware that there are a few properties that will be available soon in the McLean Hamlet. The homes are not listed in the MLS or other online sites yet. As a matter of fact, I have two listing agreements signed with sellers for very attractive properties in the Hamlet. In addition to those two homes, a long-time Hamlet family has decided to relocate and wants a contract quickly. Their home is listed with Long & Foster and not yet on the market.

Buyers who want to live in this sought after neighborhood and are casually browsing should act now. These homes will not last long, and may possibly sell before going on the market. Contact me directly for more information about these homes.

8113 Birnam Wood Drive Sold for $1,160,000

Great news for McLean Hamlet home owners! The home at 8113 Birnam Wood Drive has sold for $1,1600,000. The sale price should move the price point higher for home sales in the McLean Hamlet, as this home lacked renovations that most high priced homes feature. The home featured hardwood floors throughout and large room sizes, but it had not been renovated in key rooms such as the kitchen or master suite. As a matter of fact, this home had many original elements in it, an unfinished basement, dated kitchen cabinets, bathroom floors of inch colored tile, and wallpaper in the two-story foyer. Many recent homes sold in the Hamlet at this price feature new kitchens with top of the line appliances, fine cabinetry, and granite counters, or master suites that have been renovated with tile and glass enclosed steam-showers, and master closets with built in shelves and drawers. Yet, the buyers of this home paid above list price and were represented by a buyer broker experienced in the neighborhood, so indications are strong for prices to trend upward in the Hamlet.
