Did you notice new faces along the Lafayette Trail this weekend? Those were just potential new Lafayette families, checking out the neighborhood!
We listed two Lafayette Trail neighborhood homes last week that represent two edges of the Trail neighborhood market:
(1) High-end new construction on the Lafayette Trail: 3251 Glenside Drive. Listed at $2,250,000, with offers due today, Monday, November 17. Click here for photos and details about 3251 Glenside Drive.
(2) An older home a few houses in from the Trail: 840 Broadmoor Court is livable — but also brimming with remodel potential, including a large flat back yard. Listed at $999,000, 840 Broadmoor is on Broker’s Tour Tuesday, November 18, with offers due Friday, November 21. Click here for photos and details about 840 Broadmoor Court.
Trail Listings Surface Fresh Lafayette Home Buyer Interest
These new Lafayette Trail neighborhood listings brought fresh home buyer interest into Lafayette this week, particularly young families from Oakland and San Francisco.
In addition to many private showings, we had well over 500 people come to our two Sunday open houses, including strong local interest.
Proof: For the right properties, the 2014 real estate market is still very active. People are just waiting in the wings, hoping for the right opportunity.
With home inventory low, many of these current buyers may have longer to wait. This buyer interest, though, is a good sign for Lafayette sellers planning to list their homes in 2015. Just know – if all that is holding you back from listing your Lafayette property now is that you don’t want to move before the holidays, many buyers are willing to negotiate rent backs so that’s not a problem.
If buying or selling a home is on your to-do list, either for the remaining weeks of 2014 or into 2015, now is the time to reach out. Contact me directly at Dana@DanaGreenTeam.com or 926.339.1918.
