2017 was another great year for not just the national housing market, but our regional market in South Bend. Here at the Steve Smith Team we worked with tons of amazing clients and listed tons of incredible homes! The year isn’t over yet but so far we have sold 110 houses for our clients – with even more set to close by the year’s end. It’s not always the flashiest million dollar house that gets the homebuying public’s imagination going (although they always like those) but often the homes that simply offer a good value for the price are the ones best received by our audience. Let’s take a look at the year’s most liked listings on social media and see what caught they eye of homebuyers in South Bend.
Sold in under 2 weeks with multiple offers and an end sale price of over 98% of the initial list price, this all-brick Osceola ranch captured the attention of social media users with it’s high end finishes, double lot, swimming pool, and ample square footage. Homes in the award-winning PHM school district are always in high demand, and with a list price of under $280,000 this one delivered an exceptional value for the lucky buyer who ended up purchasing it. If the kitchen with stone countertops and custom cabinetry or the newly renovated master suite with custom tile walk-in shower weren’t enough to make you want to get in for a showing yourself, the feature that most of our potential buyers seemed most excited about was the laundry room custom outfitted by Whirlpool USA featuring front-loading washer and dryer, vortex sink, and powered drying closet with white shaker cabinetry and chic tile flooring! WOW!
Take a look some of our favorite features and rooms from numbers two through ten. Once a post gains enough momentum to make our top ten list it has to have been viewed by over 35,000 people. The album of photos from our award-winning staff photographer is usually clicked through over 6,000 times, and more than a hundred people tag their friends, family, or co-workers who are searching for a home in the comments section.
