Contract Activity in the Hamlet

The past few weeks saw homes in the Mclean Hamlet receive contracts and go through status changes. Below is a quick summary.

8002 Falstaff Road was listed for sale on January 7, and received a contract on January 11. The list price was $1,350,000.

7725 Desdemona Court received a contract on January 26. This home was on the market for 208 days since being listed on June 22 by Fass Results. It was also listed by Irvin Realty, and then listed by Keller Williams Realty on November 4.

7731 Falstaff Road is back under contract for the fourth time. This home was under contract from December 3 through January 26, but went back on the market on January 26 with a price increase from $1,194,000 to $1,220,000. It was on the market for 7 days before going under contract again on February 1. The total days on market for the property since December 18, 2019 was 284 days.

Holiday Shopping in the Hamlet

Two homes are for sale in the McLean Hamlet this holiday season. Is one right for you?

If you are looking for a last minute holiday gift this season there may yet be a property available for you. The home at 1348 Macbeth Street, originally listed in September for $1,299,000 is now listed for $1,120,000. In a neighborhood where homes typically sell quickly, this home has been on the market for almost two months.

Another option is the home at 7725 Desdemona Court. This home has been on the market even longer. Originally listed for $1,199,000 on June 24, this home is now listed with a new broker and is currently price at $1,185,000.

The McLean Hamlet is a sought after neighborhood near Tysons. The streets have sidewalks and there are two parks in the neigborhood, along with the Hamlet Swim & Tennis Club. It is a welcoming place, as can be seen in these holiday photos and video.

The holidays are a festive time in the McLean Hamlet. Check out this video of the most popular light display.

Buyers who contact me directly have been successful in purchasing homes before they are on the market. In 2019, I helped a buyer purchase 8007 Birnam Wood Drive before it was on the market. In 2020, I represented a buyer who purchased 7722 Desdemona Court for $1,130,000. In both of these instances the buyers did not have to compete with other buyers and obtained the homes at fair prices that were not escalated by competition.

7902 Falstaff Road Sold

The home sold quickly after getting a refresh with updated bathrooms and the removal of wall paper and carpeting. Sold in 14 days on the market, but really in just 4 days after being updated and put back on the market.

A Halloween treat for the seller of 7902 Falstaff Road who received $930,000 for the sale of the property on October 30. The trick to selling the home was taking the home off the market and removing wall paper and carpeting that dated the house, and updating bathrooms throughout. The home received a contract quickly after being re-listed on October 2.

Update: 8022 Birnam Wood Under Contract

A contract was ratified quickly on 8022 Birnam Wood Drive as expected. The home was listed on October 16 for $1,199,900.

The only home currently active for sale in the McLean Hamlet is 7725 Desdemona Court. The home has been on the market since June 24, listed with two brokerages during that time. The listing states that the seller is motivated and that all offers are welcome. The price was reduced today from $1,200,000 to $1,199,000. It will be interesting to see if this price reduction leads to a contract.

8022 Birnam Wood Drive Listed for $1,199,900

A home has been listed for sale for $1,199,900 in the McLean Hamlet, while another is under contract. Both homes are listed for $1,199,900.

A well renovated home was listed for sale over the weekend. The home at 8022 Birnam Wood Drive, which underwent renovations after it sold in 2018, was listed for $1,199,900. Look for this home to be under contract quickly based on the renovations, location, and sizable lot.

Another home, this one listed for 235 days by two brokers, is now under contract. The home at 7731 Falstaff Road, advertised for a list price of $1,199,900, is under contract again. It was previously under contract on September 17, but back on the market again on October 9.
