I was surprised by how busy Kings Isle, in Port St. Lucie, was during the last quarter of 2011 and my customers, Mr. & Mrs. Braendle, got in on the action. The Braendles owned a house in Hobe Sound that they listed for sale in order to purchase something in St. Lucie West – specifically in the active adult community, Kings Isle. Planning to continue to be seasonal residents, my customers liked the location of this community in its close proximity to I-95 and the easy access to shops and restaurants.
We found their dream home in Kings Isle and negotiated the offer price. The process was a bit of a roller coaster for the Braendles as they juggled the sale of their Hobe Sound property during the holidays of 2011 and worked to close on the Kings Isle home.
The property in Kings Isle was recently painted, had new floors, and new stainless steel appliances. Unfortunately the inspection revealed that the house needed a new roof so we negotiated with the seller to allow for a credit on the purchase price.
But at the end of the day it was a success. We closed earlier than expected and Mr. & Mrs. Braendle were excited to move from one end of the Treasure Coast to the other. I think what kept Mrs. Braendle going was knowing that she had a bunch of beautiful new furniture picked out for the new home. Now I’ve got to get over there to see how they’ve settled in and take a gander at their newly furnished home.
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Braendle! Not only did you get the house you wanted but you were also my first sale of 2012!
