Linda was over the Indiana winters, and family in Florida beckoned her south; but her lovely ranch home had to be sold before she could wrap up life in Indy for better weather elsewhere. Enter Jennifer. Neither lady can say this sale was easy! Along the way, two flaky buyers backed out mid-transaction, with no apparent cause and for completely unrelated reasons; but Linda was well-represented. In both cases, the buyers-turned-“breachers” were encouraged to forfeit their earnest money per the terms of their purchase agreements, which did ease the agony somewhat of starting over twice. That old saying “third time’s a charm” came into play when a new, stable, party materialized in February. The house was sold at an excellent price, with excellent terms. The inspection was a little rocky, but Jennifer helped Linda get through it; and before she knew it, closing day had arrived, right behind the PODs that lined the driveway. Linda is happily settled in Florida with the promise of a suntan and a new job. And Jennifer is pleased to say THAT one is in the books!
Mature trees frame this gracious ranch & set the stage for a colorful fall. New granite in the kitchen & the amazing new master bath will make it a delightful place to call home through the winter, but summer afternoons by the in-ground pool is what you’ll be dreaming about for the next few months! And you won’t have to worry with necessary repairs or updates, because it’s all been completed for you – from the roof to the HVCA system. With pretty, neutral paint and carpet, you can move right in, take your coffee in the 4-season room, and relax throughout the holidays.
Occasionally, Jennifer runs across a really unique house that she puts on the market with a bit of nervous anticipation. Some are so unique, they’re hard to price and predict how the market will react. 1304 Reeves Rd was a converted barn in the heart of Plainfield with a huge garage & workshop and a unique nautical feel. It was framed by mature trees and impressive landscaping, but the bedrooms were small, the kitchen counter tops were all butcher-block, and it had a “70s ambiance” with a sunny but somehow enduring edge. In 48 hours, she figured out there’s a hot market for that, with two showings books almost immediately. And she hit the nail on the head with the price, because both showings generated nearly identical offers. One was accepted with a back-up in place, and the sale closed about 45 days later.
If unique is what you’re after, this is a good fit. Contemporary house, circa 1926, on a quiet lot with mature trees and professional landscape; includes many updates: exterior & interior paint, flooring and windows. Master on the main is a nice surprise, kitchen is open and cheery with a custom tile inlay in the breakfast room. Home has a nautical feel with exposed beams, stone fireplace and rope work at the loft and staircase. This one would be SO FUN to decorate! Just blocks from the high school, in a quiet neighborhood, with a HUGE detached garage with 2 bays and a workshop area. A MUST SEE if you’re looking for something more than run-of-the-mill.
