Charles, Something caught my eye and I was wondering why the price difference on homes listed on Acre Lane in Palmyra? Excellent Question. There are currently 4 homes listed on Acre Lane from 229,900 to 465,000 and this is not that big of a road (see below and click photos for details). There are certainly differences in square footage 1600 finished to 5000 finished and this certainly contributes to some of the price range. I do find it interesting that the lowest priced home has been on the market the longest. Looking at the online photos will certainly give some additional cluesIn this case it makes sense to preview all homes in person. do not just assume that what you see online is what you get.   $229,900 6 ACRE LN, PALMYRA $375,000 24 ACRE LN, PALMYRA $325,000 30 ACRE LN, PALMYRA $...

As buyers agent I sold this Lake Monticello home to my first time homebuyer client.  Last week we got this transaction closed.  My client was a first time homebuyer and she was able to purchase this foreclosed home at Lake Monticello.  As agent for the buyer I would like to thank Marcella Johnson at Wells Fargo and Cameron Marsh at Tucker Griffin and Barnes for their help in meeting the deadlines and dealing with all of the issues that are part of purchasing a bank owned property.  When you are purchasing a foreclosure it is important to have a team of lender, closing attorney and Realtor who are experienced in this particular type of transaction.  If you would like a list of foreclosed properties that are available for sale contact me and I would be happy to provide them to you.
