Today I was happy to close with a record breaking sale at a small condo community on Belleair Beach called Tortugas De Mar. This gulfside community offers units with stunning views of the beach and sea, and my client’s home was no exception.
The tricky part? First, my clients wanted a price for their home that was a bit unheard of, given the comparable sales in the complex. However, they had a rare 3 bedroom unit on their hands, none of which had sold in recent history, even though other units with similar square footage had closed.
Secondly, there was nothing else in the building currently listed, which worked in our favor. We agreed to take a chance and to list the unit at a price higher than anything else had sold for – and guess what – we did it!
With what started out as a lowball offer from the buyer, I was able to negotiate up to $635,000 – which represents the highest MLS sale in the building since 2005! AND as additional icing on the cake, it is also the highest sale in 2017 by a whopping $39,000! My sellers are thrilled, to say the least.
2500 Gulf Blvd #104A, Belleair Beach has just closed at $635,000 – the highest sale in over 11 years, and the highest sale in 2017 by over $39,000!
