Martha’s Glen Fetches Quick Contract

Last week we put 6032 Martha’s Glen Road on the market.  By Friday morning, the listing had two showings, and procured an offer that same night.  (Same night as the first USC/Clemson baseball game).

Sporting about 4,600 sq./ft., five bedrooms, and a pool, this property appeals to a lot of folks.  In reality, however, a house like this fits a small segment of downtown Columbia’s buyer pool.   That said, by Saturday night, this Hampton’s Ridge stunner was Under Contract.

Lucky for me, the buyer and seller were determined to be under contract quickly, as to avoid a scheduled Sunday Open House.   Sure enough, around 10 PM, we orally put it together.  Honoring professional decorum, “going oral” was good enough for everyone, including me.   Sunday morning, we had the red “Pending Contract” rider on the sign, and cancelled the Open House.

Honestly, I can’t take too much credit here.  This sale was a combination of timing, and a unique/killer product.  This will be the third time I’ve sold this exact house in the last five years (Twice as Listing Realtor, once as the Buyer’s agent).   Given my past experience with this home, this is the best its ever looked, by far.  Further, the buyer needs the large number of bedrooms (kids), and 6032 Martha’s Glen fits perfectly.   The house kinda has everything; Stately facade, nice street, bedrooms, baths, garage, pool, large vegetable garden, big finished basement, patio, elevated deck, and a bangin kitchen.

Did we coach the seller on marketability strategies?  Yes, for a few months.   Do other Realtors like to work with us?  I work very hard at this, and like to think so.  Did our hustle attitude make this work?  That’s some of it, for sure.   Did we finesse the buyer’s original offer up to an acceptable number for our sellers?   Maybe a little.   Perhaps more than anything: Did our reputation and brand in Columbia, SC’s marketplace procure this listing, so we can do all the above?  BOOM.

Congratulations to the buyer and seller of this stately Hampton’s Ridge home.  Hopefully we can navigate through inspections and the other facets of this business so both sides can enjoy a smooth real estate transaction.
