Selling Quickly in the Tri-Cities: 2 Months + 1 Day Start to Finish

Today we closed on our listing at 8914 W Falls Ave in Kennewick.  This home was under contract after only 33 days on the market, and closed today, 2 months + 1 day from start to finish.

How does a house sell so quickly in today’s real estate market?  There are a few reasons:  it was a 4 bedroom (+bonus) home with a daylight basement, it had been thoughtfully updated to add value, it was located in a nice neighborhood near Sunset View Elementary, and it was priced at market value, in an affordable price range under $200,000.

Our advertising efforts included marketing the home for sale through the MLS, a color print ad in The Real Estate Book, promotion on our website, Facebook page, & Twitter, placing flyers and a QR Code for smartphones on the yard sign, and ensuring it was accessible on real estate websites including Realtor.com, Zillow, & Trulia.  These combined efforts attracted 16 separate showings and an offer that closed today, just months + 1 day after it all began!

If you’re interested in selling your house with minimum hassle and lower commission rates, contact us and we’ll let you know how we can help.

Kennewick Park 2 story – Under Contract in 33 Days!

This weekend we placed our listing at 8914 W Falls Avenue, Kennewick, WA, under contract!  This is a great example of a house priced to sell at market value–it showed 16 times in 32 days.  The buyers saw it twice the 32nd day-on-market (Friday), and made an offer after their 3rd showing (Saturday).  It is typical for buyers to move fast once they find a house they love in their price range, and this Kennewick Park house was no exception. 

Pricing your home at market value has many benefits:  Showings are constant and remain fresh in the minds of Realtors (3 agents showed this property to more than 1 client–chances are those agents “kept it in mind” as a good deal even if it didn’t fit their 1st client).  Also, offers tend to be stronger because the house shows well for the price range, a desirable price may generate a higher offer, sellers don’t have to worry about indefinitely keeping the house ready for showings, and the seller is free to move on with a serious offer on their next dream home. 

We’d love the opportunity to sell your home in 33 days too!  We can give you a neighborhood analysis with recent sold and listing prices in your area so you can be informed and know your market value. 

 

 

 

SOLD! Best Value in Neighborhood- 2230 Firerock Ave, Richland, WA

Real estate trends come and go, but this old advice still holds true–buy the lower priced house in the higher priced neighborhood.  Why?  There is potential for increased equity, renovations are more likely to pay off, the neighborhood is desirable, and the land value is likely to appreciate.

2230 Firerock Ave, Richland, WA

Our new listing on 2230 Firerock Avenue in South Richland is a great example, located in Skyline Meadows (up from Gage Blvd), priced at $279,900.  This is significantly lower than typical sales prices for the street, which range from $330,000-$515,000 in the last 7 years.  Not only is the price right, the house is move-in ready and built to the high quality standards of Don Pratt Construction.

Entryway and formal dining room

Inside this 2166 sq feet, 3 bedroom, 2 bath home you’ll find:  brand new carpet, beautiful tile and hardwood flooring, solid granite kitchen countertops, raised and coffered ceilings, high quality throughout.  The master is split from other rooms and has private access to the backyard deck, a large walk-in closet, and a luxurious bathroom with raised cabinets, double sinks, vanity, jetted tub, and tile walk-in shower.  The .26 acre lot is low maintenance (no mow backyard!), with a large patio/deck, plenty of flowering ground cover, walking paths, fruit & evergreen trees.

North Richland Surprise–Don’t Judge by the Cover!

The heart of Richland was built and owned (furniture and all) by the federal government in the 1940’s.  Richland residents were primarily employed at the Hanford Site, working on the top-secret Manhattan Project during World War II.  Around 1957, the transition was made to privately-owned real estate.  The Hanford Site remained a central part of nuclear production & technology, and Richland continued to grow.  

1612 Birch - A home built in North Richland in 1962

  North Richland was built during the 1960’s and 70’s.  Today the area thrives because residents love the mature shade trees and established neighborhoods, as well as proximity to the Hanford Site, Kadlec Medical Center, schools, and recreation.  House values have remained high due to low supply and high demand, and many of the area’s houses have been beautifully remodeled inside, but retain their original exterior architecture.

 This North Richland rambler, l0cated at 1612 Birch, is one such remodeled home.  It has a handicap accessible bedroom & bathroom, a newly added laundry /mudroom,  and a 10x10x10 shed in the fenced backyard.  The original architecture includes wood flooring, double closets, and  stone exterior & fireplace; the updated great room allows a modern open floor plan.  The attractive and functional remodel includes new:  200 AMP electrical, Lennox heat pump, plumbing, windows, pellet stove, tile flooring, kitchen cabinets, island, tile countertops, stainless appliances (including refrigerator!), luxurious jetted tub, and beautiful glass-inset doors.

Hansen Park Real Estate – Living in Kennewick, WA

 

Hansen Park Pond

 
Hansen Park is a vision in process.  A 778 acre fruit orchard on the Southern border of Kennewick, family owned by Hansen Fruit since the 1950’s.  The trees in each section were felled only after they’d passed their prime production years, beginning in 2000 with a 20 year projected completion.  The vision is immense–an all inclusive community within a community including:  apartments, townhomes, private residences, storage units, a church, an office complex, a 15 acre commercial retail center, a middle school, and of course the 26 acre park and man-made lake with green space and walking trails for all to enjoy!

This beautiful & immaculate home has a spacious open floor plan with vaulted main level.  The chef in you will love the open kitchen and island with plentiful upgraded cabinets.  Sunken family room  with tile fireplace and built-in shelving.  Spacious master with walk-in closet and luxurious jetted tub.  Relax on front and back patios or take a walk to Hansen park or pond!  $219,900 for 3 bdrms, 2.5 baths, separate living & family rooms, well-manicured fenced yard, and 3 car garage.  Give us a call if you’d like to see this amazing home & neighborhood.
