twilight rearAfter just two days on the market, the Carpenter /  Kessel Homeselling Team sold 243 Lansing Island Drive in Indian Harbour Beach for $2,630,000 – This represents the HIGHEST RIVERFRONT SALE since 2012.


The Seller owned this spectacular property for almost 4 years and this was a second residence for them. Not getting the use out of it they would like, they decided to put the property on the market. It took the Carpenter / Kessel team about 2 weeks to get all the marketing in place to bring it to market, including twilight photography, drone video / photos, HGTV style video for the subdivision, 3D virtual tours and professional writing. Once the property came on the market, a neighbor came by to take a look and it happened to be a perfect fit. This property went under contract within just 4 days of coming on the market. After the property was under contract, interest continued as well as showings to other buyers for back-up offers. With inspections complete, the Buyer and Seller ended up closing on the property about a week earlier than originally contracted. The Carpenter / Kessel team congragulates the Buyer on the purchase, this is truly one of highest quality homes the team has seen in the county.
