4th time was the charm- Jackson Road is pending

Lots of people saw potential and there were so many showings.  I actually was totally surprised that this property, although needing a little work, lasted for 22 days. Over 2000 sq. ft. and built in 1980, shared pond with private dock and an in-ground pool and barn all on 5.95 acres.  And the list price $85,000.  Nope you read that right, I didn't leave out any numbers.  

The day we listed it and the next day over 1100 people visited our website to check out the photos and yet only the 4 offers.  But the house is now pending. Of course if you are looking to purchase a home we have a great website Lake-Sinclair.com and even a way if you provide your email and phone number for you to save your search to find homes.

Hi Tammy, I hope this time it closes.  Good job hanging in there for so long with this listing.

Hi Tammy --- here's to a successful closing --- it would be quite unusual to find a property on over five acres of land in my market and definitely not under$100K. Congrats.

Holy toledo, $85,000 for that place! That's simply incredible. The last time I saw a home for sale at $85,000 was in 1980 in Costa Mesa, California.

Sybil Campbell this is the first contract, the previous offers were not accepted by the seller

Michael Jacobs it's not very common in my market either.  Which is why I don't know how it lasted 22 days.  We had actually suggested a significantly higher price

Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents Hey I live here and know the market here and I advertised this as a steal. I think with paint and carpet the replacing the missing stove these folks will easily have $50,000 equity.

Sure sounds like a bargain to me, Tammy! Congratulations on the pending sale - and for having a web site that will help future buyers find the right spot to call home.

Good job, Tammy. Great deal for the buyers. I bet they are glad they snatched it up. The repairs don't sound too expensive or difficult.

We are so delighted for you, and what a bargain!  Wishing you many more pendings.  A

Hi Tammy, I'm sure you're delighted to get this one to the closing table! One thing I've learned over the years is that I should never be too surprised when a home sits longer on the market than I expected or sells faster than I expected.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (Coldwell Banker Realty) over 4 years ago


 Congrats wow only 4 offers after 1100 people seeing it hmmm strange but this did sound like a deal!

Hi Tammy Lankford ,  Congratulations on your pending sale on Jackson Road. It's nice to see that over 1100 people are finding your website.

Hello Tammy Lankford 

Congratulations on another Pending - wishing you a smooth closing!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 4 years ago

Thanks Lottie Kendall 

JoAnn Moore waiting on the inspection period, but from the naked eye it's all cosmetic or minor. Frankly so much of the value alone in just the land

Ron and Alexandra Seigel now I just need to the find the right house for my current buyer.

Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) over 4 years ago

Nina Hollander nope, hard to surprise me anymore

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert the biggest challenge was borrowers who needed FHA or seller assistance.  Bank owned and they were very clear, no repairs (no stove) and no seller assistance.

Larry Johnston so many of those came from a share of the listing on social media in a community group.

Lisa Von Domek fortunately added two pendings this week.  Very happy. Winter has been pretty slow 


Posted by Tammy Lankford,, Broker GA Lake Sinclair/Eatonton/Milledgeville (Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668) over 4 years ago

I am surprised with all it had to offer that it lasted that long too. What a great bargain!

Posted by Evelyn Johnston, The People You Know, Like and Trust! (Friends & Neighbors Real Estate) over 4 years ago

What a special property for such a price. Sure hope the lucky buyers enjoy their little piece of paradise.

Good morning Tammy. Wow, 4th time will get the job done. Pretty inexpensive living, smart choice for the buyers.

Posted by Joe Petrowsky, Your Mortgage Consultant for Life (Mortgage Consultant, Right Trac Financial Group, Inc. NMLS # 2709) over 4 years ago

Wow, now that's a lot of interest in a property! I'm so glad you got this one under contract! Here's to a smooth closing!

Posted by Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert, Broker/Owner of Zion Realty ZionRealtyAZ.com (Zion Realty) over 4 years ago

That is a great price and to have 4 offers is good for the seller. That was a lot of clicks and you did good getting the word out.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 4 years ago

WOW Tammy, 1100 clicks on your website...and now there will be a lucky new owner. Sounds like a very nice place and with some TLC it will definitely shine.

Only 22 days on the market? That's fantastic!

Congratulations, Tammy. Clearly buyers saw what a terrific deal this was. Nothing like that in my market. Best wishes for a smooth closing


Posted by Jeff Dowler, CRS, The Southern California Relocation Dude (eXp Realty of California) over 4 years ago

Tammy, Congrats on the Jackson road going into the pending status. You stayed with trying to get this home sold. This sounds like a great price especially with almost 6 acres of land. 

Posted by Robert Bob Gilbert, Your Katy TX ( West of Houston) Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties) over 4 years ago

WOW...that's a lot for the money, Tammy. I hope you have a smooth transaction. 

Posted by Debbie Laity, Your Real Estate Resource for Delta County, CO (Cedaredge Land Company) over 4 years ago

To say the least, we never know in real estate because so often it is about timing as well as location Tammy Lankford .   The fact it stayed on the market and got you all those hits on your website can only increase your visibility and hopefully your production through the spring showing season.   Hope it closes quickly.
