The current owners purchased the home in 2004 and are the original owners. When asked what was it that the loved about the home? Originally it was the space, schools, and the fact that they had a home for their then 3-month year old daughter. You could tell from our conversation that they loved the neighborhood as well as their neighbors are very caring and great neighbors too. I noticed this as we hosted the Open House on Saturday and neighbors were sad to see them go. One even suggested parking their additional car in his yard so that the future homeowners could drive up to the home.
That proved to me that the new homeowners will feel connected to the home and neighborhood. I always illustrate that not only are you buying the home, you are buying the neighborhood as well. Sandy Glen is one close-knit neighborhood that really makes a difference in home buying.
