4830 Terrapin Court, Melbourne Beach Florida
The Carpenter / Kessel Homeselling Team represented the seller in the sale of 4830 Terrapin Court, an immaculate lakefront pool home in the Melbourne Beach neighborhood of Turtle Bay, for $591,000.
The sellers at 4830 Terrapin had been preparing to list their home since closing on another Melbourne Beach property back in May. The Carpenter / Kessel team represented the Buyers through that transaction and they knew then that our team was the perfect fit to list and sell their Turtle Bay home. At the end of October, the sellers were ready to make their move, and with the influx of winter residents settling in town for the season, they hoped the right buyers would come along quickly. Our team quickly went to work and pre-listing photos were taken, marketing materials were designed, and a property sign was ordered. However, before the property was even officially active on the market, an Indian River County agent with buyers looking in the South Beaches contacted the C/K team to schedule a sneak peek of the home. The buyers were enamored with the house and quickly made an offer which was accepted by our clients. At the closing table a month later, all parties were pleased with the quick and easy transaction, efficiently accomplished by the Carpenter / Kessel Team through the busy holiday season.
