Good Deals and Great Deals in Viera Real Estate

A few months ago I was working with a buyer from south Florida who was looking for a great deal. The key point to know is the buyer was not familiar with Brevard County Florida at all.

Lucky for him, I was very familiar with area because I have lived and worked in the Viera, Suntree and Rockledge areas for the past 13 years!

Anyway, to make a long story short… He wanted a great deal on a short sale. We looked at lots of properties, several really attractively priced. We found one in a neighborhood of $300,000 -$400,000 homes.

I knew this neighborhood as I knew folks who lived in the neighborhood. I recommended we offer about $190K. His response, not a great deal. We parted company.

The property closed last week for $210,000. I do not know if we could have gotten the house for $190,000 but we never tried.

As you consider properties for sale, remember, a good deal may not necessarily look like a great deal at the moment.
