Think the Choice of Agent does not matter?
Another agent listed the house for over three months at $900K without any buyer interest.
After taking over the listing, BCP got our client $110K more in only 3 days.
How does BCP produce such a result?
The difference is BCP applied our unmatched approach to superior visual presentation and knowledge of the micro-market relevant to Overlook, which allows BCP to understand what buyers are willing to pay for a superior house in a sought-after community like Overlook.
Rather than present an empty house to the market, BCP fully furnished our client's empty house from the "House of BCP" interior design collection to ensure maximum visual impact, both online and in person, to drive both buyer interest and top-tier price.
What does this sale mean for Overlook?
BCP got our client the highest city home sale price since 2005, with a $90K higher price than for a similar end unit city home backing to Bren Mar Park sold by a "luxury" agent in early 2020.
With this sale and BCP's sale of 6271 Kingfisher for $970K in August 2020, BCP has raised the value of Overlook city homes by $50K, then by a further $40K.
If you are thinking of selling your Overlook house, BCP stands ready to help you achieve the best possible result.
Please enjoy this 5 bedroom, 4 full and 1 half bathroom, 3906 finished sq.ft. end city home for sale in the sought-after Overlook community in Alexandria, Virginia.
