2 Rattlesnake Mountain Road, Stockbridge – Represented the seller. We listed the property in April 2006 for $495,000. The seller was very attached to this property which is adjacent to their current residence and held fond memories for them. While we knew it was over-priced, it was clear to me that my seller wasn’t ready. All I asked of them is to stick with me!! We lowered the price several times until it was clear the property was decaying and appeared unloved. In mid-May of 2008, we lowered it to $225,000 – as is!! We had a full price offer within 2 weeks. The property closed on July 5, 2008 for $235,00 – some extra consideration for extra land.. The seller was pleased and ready to sell and the buyer knew they had purchased well!!
