A kind note from the 6339-C Eagle Ridge selling client:
I have nothing but glowing praise of Scott Ford of Bella Casa Partners. From my initial contact with Scott until the final papers were signed and payments were made, Scott proved to be professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and incredibly communicative! Scott's in depth knowledge of the micro-markets, trends, upgrades, staging, pricing, negotiations, and sale particulars is overwhelming. I had total confidence in Scott's abilities, and he totally delivered. I could not have sold my home in Overlook without Scott. Thank you!
Think your choice of agent does not matter?
Working with an agent that focuses on Overlook makes a difference.
BCP got our client a full price offer at the 2nd highest ever sale price for an Overlook condo. Our client got this result even after the market shifted in response rapidly increasing mortgage rates, more inventory options, & buyers with greater leverage.
The resulting difference?
In comparison, multiple Overlook condos with far more upgrades than our client's condo sold for less money in the first half of 2022 during the most pro-Seller market we are likely ever to see.
Why the difference? Because these condos listed for a $20-35K lower price, far below the value that a 2 bed, 2.5 bath, 1600-1700 sq.ft., 1-car garage condo located within the Beltway in a desirable community like Overlook provides to buyers.
BCP applies our experience selling houses in Overlook, our unmatched knowledge about the micro-market relevant to Overlook to assess what buyers are willing to pay, and superior visual presentation to drive buyer interest in our client's house.
