Ive noticed that when Realtors use the term "highly sought after community" in their descriptions, it tends to be used very loosely or sometimes just doesnt apply at all. I must admit I use it myself, but only when it truly applies and Ive used it here and this is why. Sweet Grass is a highly sought after community for the simple fact that in the last 6 months there have been 5 homes that have hit the market. 3 out of the 5 were relisted, meaning they were on the market at one point and ended up expiring. All 5 of the homes sold and since then, there has only been one home that has been on the market, overpriced and has been listed for 126 days. Its been on for so long that the front picture still has a snow filled driveway. The turnover in this community is very high and the inventory levels seem to always remain very low. The last point I must make is that Im talking about all types of homes, not just 2storeys, bugalows, split levels etc. So I think that its fair to say this home that just hit the market, that offers 4 bedrooms, 3 bath, sitting on a massive 8400sqft lot, with a south facing yard is located in a "highly sought after community". The bones of the homes have undergone a serious overhaul including: new shingles, new siding, new windows, newer furnace and hot water tank. The inside has also seen some love with completely redone bathrooms, granite countertops and hardwood flooring. Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, this home is not going to last very long.
