When these buyers approached me, they gave me very specific search parameters if they
were going to move. They owned a town home and were ready for a single family home, if it had a very nice backyard and it was a nice fixer upper. Like most town homes, they had a very small yard, which is good if you want low maintenance. But, if you love the outdoors and you, your kids want to play outside, you need to go to the park. There are several parks in the Silver Spring area but it is nice to have your own yard. These clients also enjoy home improvement projects so they weren't turned away by old, outdated homes.
This home at 12013 Kemp Mill Road fit the bill perfectly. While the home is on a "main street" it is very far set back, has a scenic feel and sits on just under an acre of land. So it feels very private. Beautiful yard, great play area and a great place to take photographs. One of my clients is a photographer.
The home also had a lot of charm and character but needed updating. We learned through the home inspection of some big issues that had to be considered, and these issues definitely gave the buyers something to think about. Fortunately, we were able to negotiate an amicable resolution with the sellers and it was a very pleasant transaction.
My clients love their home and have already done so much to it. I am fortunate to also call them friends and it has been a delight coming over, watching the home transformation. It almost feels like I am watching a realty show. It is great seeing the smiles on their faces and how excited they are to have friends come over.
They should enjoy the home for many years and create many memories.
So, please, whenever you hear of family, friends and colleagues who are looking to move, no matter how wide or narrow their home search criteria is, I am here to guide them through the process and to make sure they get the homes of their dreams. And, even if they aren't ready to move, aren't thinking about moving but have real estate questions, please pass my contact information to them. It would be my pleasure to meet and speak with them. I always appreciate and have time for your referrals.
Life is good!
