New Build @ Heathwood Finally Closed.

01a

Over the last few months we’ve received many calls about the white house being built on Wyndham Road in Heathwood. The questions were consistent: “How much are you asking?” “How many square feet?” Each time Amanda or I answered an inquiry, the phrase, “It’s Under Contract” was included. That said, 1435 Wyndham closed late Thursday afternoon.

I suppose the reason for so many phone calls is three fold: 1) It’s a good lookin house; 2) It’s a stellar location; 3) It never hit the Zillow/Trulia/Realtor.coms of the world. It went under contract before it ever hit the market, which means no one could find it online.

Congratulations to the buyers and sellers of 1435 Wyndham Road!

If you or anyone you know would like to know the value of your property, please call us at 803-447-8683 or email me at Franklin@FArealtygroup.com. We would love to give your home a proper valuation – no charge, of course. Further, if you would like to know more about new build jobs coming up or new listings that we have coming to market, give us a shout and I’ll tell you what I know.

Thank you!

Twitter: From Lifeblood To Life Support?

My friend, Wesley Donehue, brought up a subject this week that some of us have long thought, but just kinda let fade away on its own rather than call it out so declaratively. In his blog post Wesley called Twitter, "dead." Notice he didn't ask, "Is … [Continue reading]
