More often than not, it’s not just the price a property sells at that makes its sale significant.
While our listing at Compass Point II, Unit 424 in WaterSound Beach did sell for $2,285,000 – 95% of list price – and was placed under contract after only 4 days on market, a significant amount of work was done ahead of time to help the seller achieve their goal.
With the arrival of a new grandchild in Birmingham, the sellers’ visits to 30A were becoming less frequent, but having made many fond memories during their times spent at WaterSound Beach – including their daughter’s wedding – the decision to sell was a tough one.
Never before rented, the top floor unit boasts an incredible 24-foot tall expanse of windows framing what is arguably one of the best views in the entire community – an ever-changing scene encompassing protected dunes, the outflow of a rare coastal dune lake, white sand beach, and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. Offering an exceptional amount of space, its balcony effortlessly hosts outdoor dining and entertaining, while its updated kitchen and baths showcase marble counters and new lighting. Add to that a private garage for a vehicle, golf cart, or beach gear.
Ahead of having the property photographed, and a professional video tour produced, we recommended the services of Laura McKee of Dwell, who freshened the interiors, allowing them to show at their very best.
This thorough preparation allowed us to present the property to customers who were already in love with WaterSound Beach. After their first visit to the property, they decided it was perfect, and opted to list their existing WaterSound Beach property at The Crossings and move forward with their purchase at Compass Point.
