52907 N Thomas Rd Benton City, WA Recap

In a small but peaceful town outside West Richland is a town called Benton City, Washington. 

Early March of 2020 I received a phone call. It was a friend of mine from a local charity group in Tri-cities Washington who has some real estate questions. It was brought to my attention that someone had an interest in purchasing the property but the purchase price didn't seem to add up. My first thought was the comps in the area had to be a lot better then what was being offered so I asked if I could go ahead and take a look at the property and see if perhaps there was money going to be left on the table after the purchase had gone through.

Here sits an amazing 6-acre horse property that overlooks some of the most beautiful landscapes that the Mid-Columbia Basin has to offer.

After reviewing the subject property I immediately sent over the CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). From the data I analyzed, it seemed that in fact, my friend was leaving a lot on the table if the sale of the home was to go to the buyers that offered to take the property off his hands. Almost $50,000 gives you an idea of how important it is to have a good CMA done from a real estate agent from Real Estate Market Leaders. 

Now, it is important to note that if you use a Realtor® like my self, you are getting much more than just your home up on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

You are getting a full-on marketing plan with a high-end production that's included in your service with Real Estate Market Leaders. We bring in a photographer for photos, video tours, as well as aerial drone footage to really capture the amazing qualities of your home.

Once we had all the key marketing content ready for email blasts, social media ads, blogs, and websites it was time to go live. We went live from the office in Kennewick Washington on March 13th, 2020 and within 24 hours we had showing after showing.

Once the marketing firehose was turned on, the following day we decided to accept an offer.

What an amazing turnout for great peace of property and a great friend. This was a true example of how homes should be sold. The Real Estate Market Leaders team had a great time with this listing. We got up close and personal with horses and livestock along with a taste of farm life that you just won't see in the cities of Washington State.

My name is Brian Berg with Real Estate Market Leaders and if you have a home that needs to be sold and would like the red carpet of marketing rolled out because it deserves it, contact me.

Pros and Cons of Buying a Manufactured Home

Should I buy a Manufactured Home?

Manufactured Homes for Sale in Tri Cities

 

If you are thinking about buying a manufactured home in Tri Cities, there are a few things you will need to consider before you make your purchase.

 

#1. Are manufactured Homes as good as stick built homes?

If you are looking at Manufactured Homes for Sale in Tri Cities, you will see that most of the manufactured homes that are on land are in Finley or Benton City. Therefore, its not so much of a question of the quality of the home as much as it is of the location of the home and the type of lifestyle you want. For Example, if you want horses and you are looking for a property that has barns and allows you to build a large shop then buying a manufactured home is a great option for you. However, if you are ok with a small yard and you would rather have most of your budget spent on the home and less of your budget spent on the land than you should go with a stick built home. Most of the popular subdivisions in the  Tri Cities have HOA and restrictions against manufactured homes.  If you choose to live in Horn Rapids or Hanson Park you will not have chickens or horses.  The main point of buying a manufactured home has always been to move out into the country and own land that is hooked up to its own well and septic.  If that is not your plan then I would just buy a stick built home hooked up to city water and city sewer. There is no doubt about it that the quality of a home built by a local builder can far exceed the quality of a manufactured home.  Manufactured homes are designed to allow buyers to make economical and easy purchases to develop land quickly.  If you are interested in Luxury Real Estate in Tri Cities you will not be looking at manufactured homes.
