Where:  2521 Kipling Avenue South, just west of Minneapolis’ Cedar Lake.
What: True 1.5 Story, 3 Bedroom/3 Bath home with over 2,200 finished square feet on a huge lot (75′ x 138′).
When: closed yesterday (5/10).
How much: $450,000.
Who: listed by Ross Kaplan, Edina Realty — City Lakes; Buyer represented by Brad Fox, Fox Homes.

Normally, houses on (and off) the market for 437 days don’t end up selling in multiple offers, for WELL over asking price.

But, that’s exactly what happened with 2521 Kipling Avenue in St. Louis Park, which just closed yesterday.

The explanation?

All but 21 of those days accrued under another agent and broker.

Enter yours truly.

Fresh photography, (virtual) staging, new pricing, and aggressive marketing did the trick this March.

Elapsed time till an offer received (two, in fact): less than 3 weeks.

Congrats to both the Buyer and Seller!
