If 8431 Winding Passage is the best buy in Briargate (and shoot, that's not even my listing), I think I can safely say the best buy in Monument: 1520 Windwood Ct.
Just as I previewed Briargate yesterday I previewed $500,000 to $600,000 in Northgate and Monument last week.
My conclusion: there was a single home on the market (out of 15) that were a better buy than my listing at 1520 Windwood Ct. My listing on Windwood has a single problem, it backs to a busy road, and this was a custom home with a great plan and great condition of similar vintage for only a few thousand more on a great, landscaped lot.
Well the sellers decided they wanted to be number one with a bullet.
1520 Windwood Ct. is $535,000.
I have comparable sales galore to support $575,000 to $600,000. These are closed sales since October 1, 2007. The one on Longmeadow at the end of the street closed at $540,000 June 30th. Same size, no features at all like 1520 Windwood, and 6 years older. Tract versus Custom, Custom is now $5000 less.
Red Fox sold for $530,000. Also six years older. Oak cabinets and 12 inch ceramic tile in the kitchen. 1520 Windwood: 42" Cherry and Granite.
Last week it was competitive at $550,000.
This week it is compelling at $535,000.
And it's open as part of the Parade of Home Massive Open House ERA SHIELDS Sales Event Extravaganza this Sunday.
With free ice cream.
Good ice cream.
We're talking Dove Bars. Heath Klondikes. Genuine Bomb Pops. Fudgecicles. Julie's Blackberry Sorbet Bars. Even the Vegans can enjoy bliss this Sunday afternoon.
