It’s been a busy month and spring market for The Charpentier Team, despite the nearly constant onslaught of rain. Fortunately, the rain hasn't seemed to hold us back; amid numerous transactions and closings, we launched the following listings for sale – and so far, they’ve been flying off the shelves!
66 Tuttle – This drop-dead gorgeous Victorian in Savin Hill was sure to be a heartbreaker. Within moments of launching online, the phone was ringing and email was blowing up. We received eight competitive offers after the first weekend of open houses and while we’d like to say that this house sold itself, it did not. The marketing we conducted did.
It was staged and furnished beautifully, for starters, from the front porch to the backyard garden and patio. Kudos to the owners on this. Every room was tastefully decorated to accentuate the home’s features; however, prospective buyers weren’t so overwhelmed with the owners’ “stuff” that they couldn't imagine living there themselves. It was the perfect example of well-executed, balanced staging.
Next, there was the professional photography, which came out great. In fact, it was so good we planned a rare "Coming Soon" drip campaign in the days leading up to the launch. The stunning photos definitely got the attention of numerous buyers and their brokers who wanted to know where the house was, how much it cost and when they could buy it!
We didn’t stop at the photos, though – we did floor plans for each level of the house, and a 3D tour which gave buyers a very accurate impression of what it feels like to “walk” from room to room.
Check out the link to see just what we are talking about. 66 Tuttle was listed for $769,000 – and to find out what it sold for….well, you will just have to wait and see. We can't spill all of our secrets.
925 East 2nd St. #7 in South Boston is next up. Aside from the idyllic location in City Point, close to Castle Island, the beach, this condo comes with two (2!) parking spaces. Central air, an in-unit laundry room, deeded storage and two decks complete the package.
The living room of this one is oversized, so if you’re looking for a place to fit that sectional couch from Jordan’s, then this is it. And if you like to cook and have your friends over, there’s a dining room as well.
Listed at $639,000, it’s no surprise that this condo is currently pending. We’ll be sure to post when it closes.
107 South St. #3A in the Leather District was just launched this week and we are swooning over the exposed brick and beam in this jumbo-sized loft. If you love the “loft life” then this may be the place you’ve been waiting for. With 11’ ceilings and 7’ windows, and a square footage of 1,914, you’ll be planning your dinner parties from the moment you walk in. We’ve already had our first open house and have another one planned for this Sunday, May 5 from 11:30 – 1:00, so come check it out! This spectacular offering is listed at $1,339,000.
Also launched this week is this penthouse condo at 351 Dorchester St. in South Boston. Unit #4 boasts exclusive roof rights to build a roof deck, from which you’ll have stunning skyline views. It’s super close to the Red Line (just .1 miles, to be exact) and also a short distance to the beach. There’s so much development happening nearby, between everything going on over at Dorchester Avenue, as well as South Bay Center and the anticipated Washington Village. For the person who ends up the lucky owner, he/she may just reap the rewards of getting in before things really take off.
This 2-bedroom condo is listed at $519,900 and open houses are Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5, from 12:00 – 1:30. See you there!
