Multiple offers! Great house sells on West Cornelia in Blaine school district

Our clients were recently involved in a multiple offer for 1226 W Cornelia, a single family home asking $850,000 (pictured below... we didn't get it).  The entire real estate community came out immediately with offers in hand for this very attractive and well located Lakeview/ Southport Corridor house in Blaine school district.

 The 1200 block of West Cornelia is one of the small "cut-outs" south of West Addison Street that is included in the Blaine Elementary School attendance boundaries (a top ranked and desired school). The home itself was tastefully renovated bout 20 years ago with simple, clean lined contemporary style and still looks great today.  The asking price was low for this particular market location and was meant to generate the best offers immediately.  

Great block!

My information concerning the deal suggested a cash offer over well over list price won the house.  It will land $900,000 or more easily is my guess. As mentioned, our clients did not get it...but we did everything we could to put them in the game.   

We wrote the offer in the car in front of the house and I walked the offer up the steps!  The listing agent was gracious and handled the crush of interest with professionalism and class...not always the case.  Clients should know how their listing or buyer's agent will handle a hot potato situation.
