This just came on the market at the new price and it's a beautiful home. I would be happy to send you the full listing and take you to see it today or over the weekend. It's a regular sale and at that price i expect it will go fairly quickly. I would suggest getting out before the weekend rush. Have you been pre approved for a loan? When putting offers on homes it is essential to have a preapproval letter to submit with your offer. Most sellers will not accept an offer without one. If you don't have one I work with some really great lenders that can get you set up very quickly. I would be happy to send you their names or you can fill out our online application at Please let me know if you would like to go out and we can arrange a time.

Hello, Hermine

This property last sold for $845K in January 2004. This is a 5-year old custom home. They listed this for sale in June 2008 for $968K, but that listing expired.

This is a regular sale, so it's neither an REO or a short sale, but is priced aggressively to reflect the condition of the market place.

It is currently assessed at $914,644 with taxes of $10,762 (and this assessment is based on what the sellers paid for in 2004. The owners probably should look into getting a property reassessment to lower their taxes.

They took out a loan of $650K in 2004 when the bought it, which means they put down a substantial amount as a down payment. By offering this for sale at the current list price of $759K, they are hoping to recoup some of their down payment , selling expenses and other closing costs.

The property has 2820 sq ft; but according to the listing agent, the "upstairs office not included in square footage of home." HOA fees are $190/yr

Sales in the neighborhood in 2009 range from a high of $1,200,000 in February for a 4,583 sq ft house, to a low of $590K for 1598 sq ft house in March. A house with 2,717 sq ft home, closer to this house in square footage, sold for $877K in March 2009, while another with 2697 sq ft sold for $735K in February.

If you need more information about this, or other homes in the area, please feel free to contact me. I will be happy to help --- and/or show properties to you, provided that you aren't already working with a realtor and would like the services of one.

It's owner occupied yet easy to get into. I can get you into the home tomorrow and this weekend if interested? It looks like it was on and off the market in 2008 for $968 and sold in 2004 for $850k. It's not quite yet a short sale.
