Silver Spring, MD, August 13, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Morrison, Skilling & Mathews Team (MSM) just sold a house in the Forest Estates neighborhood of Silver Spring. It was listed at and sold for $445,000. The house went under contract in less than a week.
The 20902 zip code of Silver Spring had 47 closed sales in June 2014. The median sold price was $358,000, up 2.3% over last year. The median days on market was 12 days, down 14.3% over last year, and the average days on market was 24 days.
This delightful 3-bedroom colonial was built in 1948 and is easy walking distance to the Forest Glen Metro station. This cheerful home has all of the character of an older home - pristine hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and crown molding. There is an open flow between the dining room and kitchen, perfect for entertaining, including a built-in china cabinet. The cook’s kitchen features all stainless steel appliances, including a wall convection oven and microwave, gas cook-top range, maple cabinets, and granite countertops. The master bedroom is particularly spacious and has a large walk-in closet, not typical of older homes. The basement features a recently added full bathroom and a large finished bonus room that would be perfect as a family room or game room.
The MSM Team added value for this client by organizing the renovation of the home prior to listing it for sale. The bones of the house were strong; but there were some projects that the Team recommended the owner undertake. As a result, the roof has been replaced, hardwood floors hidden by the carpet in the bedrooms have been refinished to their gleaming best, and one of the bathrooms has been upgraded. These, and other repairs and upgrades, were undertaken by contractors trusted and recommended by the Team. All of the restoration and repairs were monitored by the MSM Team on behalf of the homeowners. This minimized the homeowners’ efforts and concerns; everything was handled by the team to remain within a pre-agreed budget.
