The buyers are a family already living in the High Park area, who were in search of a larger home. This place’s ample driveway and garage were big selling points. They snagged a quick closing, and will move in within a month.
The agent ran a seven day “coming soon” marketing campaign before listing the property, which helped drum up extra interest. There were 70 showings, and more than 110 groups attended the open houses. Eight offers came in after a week on the market. The sellers accepted the highest, at almost $330,000 over asking.
