We had multiple offers on this Fredericksburg, Va home shortly after putting it on the market for sale. 11604 Silverleaf Lane in Fredericksburg is a 3 bedroom rambler with an unfinished basement and 2 car garage. This lovely home backs to a nice treed setting with a large deck off the kitchen.
This home that received multiple offers was owned by a former Marine who recently passed away. By the time they contacted me, his heirs decided to put a little money into it to get it ready to sell. They did all the right things…..New laminate floor in the kitchen and baths to replace the outdated vinyl and new carpets in the great room and bedrooms. New lighting fixtures were also installed. These relatively low cost items made a huge difference in their sale price. After doing comps in the neighborhood, we priced it accordingly since they wanted a quick sale. I took many great pictures to show off this great home and posted them on the MLS.
Within a few days, we had 3 written contracts and many showings that were continuing. All parties knew of the multiple offers and knew they had to present their highest and best. I didn’t have time to do any open houses or extensive advertising that I typically do. Because of all the competition, we even sold for more than asking price.
There were, like there always is, little problems along the way. There is no such thing as a smooth sale these days. We worked everything out in the end and both parties are happy with the results. A very nice newly married couple has a great new home they can make their own and have many happy memories there.
