information about the best house home sold in Oconee County South Carolina week of January 29 2017

 

The best deal in my opinion of the sold listings this week was a 3004 SF 3 bedroom 2.5 bath house on 0.68 acres in the city limits of Seneca.

 

It sold for $130,000 CASH after being on the market for 218 days. Originally hit the market at $189,500.

 

Located in the 29678 Zip Code and the Northside Elementary, Seneca Middle, Seneca High school district per MLS.

 

Multiple fireplaces. Architectural shingle roof. 1 car attached 2 car attached and 2 car detached garage. Heat pump. Carpet, ceramic tile and hardwood floors.

 

Huge home for the money in well established neighborhood. Does need cosmetic updating.

 

I would say the home was overpriced when it hit the market and this caused it to take so long to sell.

 

Overpricing leads to homes taking longer to sell and selling for less than they should or could.
