I Didn't Want To Buy A FSBO Without An Agent

"I didn't want to buy a FSBO without an agent" a buyer told me today.  He elaborated a bit about concerns with disclosures, title searches and all the details that come along with making sure a home transaction is successfully completed.

This buyer recognized that while both the buyer and FSBO owner might all mean well, but when you don't know what you don't know, that makes it easier for things to go wrong.  And let's face it, if you buy or sell a home about once a decade, you REALLY don't have a reason to keep up with the intricacies of exchanging homes. 

So the end result, today we finished a condo purchase in Maineville's Miami Bluffs.  It's a community we keep coming back to, with today's condo purchase being the third time in the Adena of Miami Bluffs condo section that we've helped a buyer with their new home.   

Adena at Miami Bluffs

Overall this was a very smooth transaction and just slightly over 3 weeks from showing to closing.  There was horse trading during negotiations, with a cheaper price in lieu of the seller proceeding with a planned carpet replacement.  My buyers are happy to pick out EXACTLY the carpet they want.  And rather than a couple of minor repairs, they traded for the seller's deck furniture.  My buyers are looking forward to spending a lot of time enjoying the view of the man-made lake, the fountain and some nights, a great view of Kings Island's fireworks!
