JUST SOLD! Renovated Ogden East Bench Cottage
Published On: February 25, 2018 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson
We just closed on the sale of this fully renovated cottage located on Ogden’s East Bench. The home is located at 2202 Taylor Ave. and experienced a top-to-bottom remodel.
We originally listed the property for sale on December 8th for $264,900. The sellers were aggressive in their list price and wanted to test the market. After a week of quiet, we dropped the price $15,000 to $249,900. At this new price point we began to get regular showings.
On the 8th of January, we dropped the price again to $244,900. Shortly thereafter, we began to receive offers. Our first offer backed out a day after agreeing to terms when at that point they got cold feet. Our second offer came in short order. They offered $242,000 and asked for $7,000 in closing costs. We countered at $246,900 while honoring their request for closing cost assistance. The buyers accepted.
The transaction from that point went fairly smoothly. We did need to extend the contract dates to accommodate slow property inspections but otherwise moved at a steady clip. Ultimately, we closed.
Congratulations to our sellers!
