After an exhaustive home search, my clients finally came upon the historic home of their dreams in Rowayton and put in an offer. But the pandemic effect was strong and so was the buyer competition.
We closed many weeks earlier on the sale of their home in Southport and had been targeting a new home in Darien. We sold their home to capture the sellers market and hoped to find their new home shortly thereafter. Searching for a special antique home with character and history, it took longer than expected, so they hunkered down in a hotel as their temporary residence and put their furnishings in storage while focusing on the hunt.
However, after losing a home they loved to multiple offers, nothing seemed to stack up to the benchmark my clients now had in their minds. Or nothing lasted on the market long enough for them to see with their busy work schedules. Or nothing matched the price they felt it was worth. After months of looking in Darien, we tried a new focus on Greenwich… and then Rowayton.
It turns out that this was the special day when the one-of-a-kind gem they had been searching for was found, AND their offer was accepted. After touring dozens of homes across three towns, this historic antique near the Long Island Sound, previously a sea captain’s home, was about to begin a new chapter. This vintage home was number 62 of their home search, but for them, it was new and exciting, and number one!
