Where Are Stone Home Buyers ?

Offered At $ 349,000.00

This was a really neat deal for A Stone Home.

The location was a little out of the way – in the shoulder area between Smiths Falls – Kingston and Brockville.  Really not close to any of them but still within a commutable distance.

The owners had been using a local real estate agent without any success.

Note:  Experience has shown that the typical stone home buyer is not buying  where the house is as much as what the house is.  Which creates a challenge with getting exposure to interested – qualified buyers. We can do that.

After an extended period using a local real estate agent with limited exposure and no success they called us.  We went out and shot the photos and video, built the web sites and created the marketing materials.

As always – we pushed it first to our community the the public mls system.

Within the first 2 weeks our network generated 3 showings.  One family from Burlington, one from Toronto and one from the Montreal area.  Imagine – all were interested and qualified.  From those three showings we received 2 offers and the home was successfully sold in a very short period.

It’s a matter of showcasing your home to the most qualified buyer pool.  A Stone Home can do that.

This great stone home was located in the pristine farm country near Portland Ontario and was a classic example of what a Stone Home can become when it’s owned by a family with vision. These homes were built for and by working families that settled in the area and have stood the test of time.

Too often we find these stone homes have been let go over the years, with major changes to the layout and structure. It was such thrill to find one that had been updated with care, restored when appropriate and lived in to the fullest.

A Family Feel ~ With That Solid Elegance Of Yesterday

The home had enjoyed updated systems, designer kitchen while maintaining the sense and feeling of history. Also, what was at one time a Stone Pig Barn had been transformed into a wonderful artist studio / workshop. A separate barn acted as storage. All on almost 5 acres on a quiet road just minutes to the village of Portland. .

The closest major towns were Smiths Falls and Perth and an easy drive to Kingston Brockville or Ottawa. This home offered a lifestyle most people can only dream about..
