Least Expensive Home Reported Sold
The least expensive home reported sold this week in Anderson County was a 1400 SF 2 bedroom 1 bath home on less than 0.49 acres in the city limits of Anderson. It sold for $4400 after being on the market for 43 days. Originally listed for $5000.
I should NOT have to say it but this home needed extensive repairs. And it it is located in an area that many buyers will NOT like. Sold AS-IS. Built in 1927, no heat or air. It must have had a claw foot tub because in the agent remarks section it says the tub does not pass with the sale. I wonder if the tub was the nicest thing about the home?
Most Expensive Home Reported Sold
The most expensive home reported sold this week in Anderson County was a brick 3598 SF 5 bedroom 4.5 bath home on 0.61 acres in Anderson. It sold for $365,000 after being on the market for 8 days. Originally listed at $369,900.
Very nice home in the Hanna, Glenview, Midway school district. In ground fiberglass pool. Formal living room, formal dining room. Kitchen features cherry cabinets, granite countertops, stainless appliances & 2 pantries. Hardwood & ceramic tile floors.
Interesting note about this home. Yes it sold quickly but even more interesting is the note in the private remarks that “Buyers must be prequalified before viewing the home”.
Which makes me ask 2 things:
- Why would any agent work with a buyer that has NOT already been prequalified?
- Why would any buyer start looking at homes before getting prequalified?
I mean really. Why would anyone look at homes before knowing IF they can buy a home or what they can afford?
Why would any real estate professional waste their valuable time working with someone that may not even be able to buy a home?
Sold Deal of the Week
In my opinion, the best deal of the homes sold this week in Anderson County was a brick 1845 SF 3 bedroom 2 bath home on less than 0.99 acres in Anderson. It sold for $108,000 after being on the market for 48 days. Originally listed at $119,000.
Short sale. Home appears to be in good shape but does have a dated interior. Still, this is a great price for a brick 3/2 home of this size in Anderson. Heat pump, 2 car garage, hardwood floors. Dining room, laundry room.

This Week’s Hot New Listing
