This Fairfax, VA Home for Sale Already Had 4 Contracts, but You Won’t Believe What Happened with the 5th!
When newlyweds Matthew and Stephanie Pepper went to buy their first house together, they didn’t have any hesitation on who their realtor would be — he had performed their wedding! They knew right away that Redux Realty Lead Agent Chris Craddock would help them find the perfect home, and they were right!
Matthew, an artist, hoped to find a home with a convenient Beltway commute and a striking creative aesthetic. Stephanie, a teacher, has a passion for history, and loved searching for the best home options in the area. Over a family-style dinner at their Chantilly, VA home, Chris and his wife Katherine helped the Peppers narrow down their neighborhoods and really hone in on the essential elements of the right first home for them.
Chris also helped Matthew and Stephanie get pre-qualified for a loan, knowing that in today’s hot spring market the Peppers needed to be ready to put in a strong offer if they found a Fairfax, VA home they loved.
After a week or two of searching, Matthew and Stephanie found “THE ONE”. It had a convenient commute, was close to Matthew’s family, was in a great neighborhood, and had the modern, artistic edge Matthew wanted. The problem? In just one weekend, it had FOUR other contracts already submitted on it!
But Chris, an expert negotiator, wasn’t worried …
Not only did the Pepper’s contract beat out FOUR other contracts, BUT — GET THIS — Chris’ keen negotiation skills helped the Peppers beat out a contract that was $5,000 higher than theirs! WOW!!!
The Peppers love their new Fairfax, VA home and couldn’t be happier — and we couldn’t be happier for them. Congratulations, Matthew and Stephanie!!! We love you guys!
