  2 Master Suite Floor Plan Lake Home for Sale in Venice FL – Just Sold   This lake home for sale in Venice Florida has a 2 master suite floor plan and was just sold by Kwee Huset of Kwee Huset Realty.     The seller was well informed and educated before the property went up for sale. On the first day in the market, this beautiful lake front home attracted many showings. The seller received five offers in a short period of time. She understood the pros and cons of each offer, and after discussing with her family members, she rejected all offers and requested for the highest and best offer. It was surprising to see buyers offer between 4 - 17% more than the asking price with a mortgage contingency. However the seller knew the market condition and she accepted the full price offer with th...
