The DeWayne Carpenter / Kirk Kessel Homeselling Team just SOLD the Banana River waterfront property at 1781 Bayshore Drive, Cocoa Beach for $1,270,000.

After living on the river since 2008, the owners of this property decided they wanted to live on the ocean. Having built this modern masterpiece themselves, they knew they needed someone that would market their unique home with the same attention to detail they put into constructing it. Their first call was to The Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team. Knowing our reputation for expertise buying and selling waterfront the owners knew we would succeed in getting the property sold, and help them find their new property as well.

Our first task was to secure a new property on which they could build their oceanfront dream home. We secured them their new lot in 2016, and the planning process began. Fast forward to 2017 and it was now time to find a buyer for their current home – and that is exactly what we did. Due to the nature of the building and planning process, we successfully negotiated a sales contract that included a leaseback. This allowed our sellers to remain in their home post-closing, meaning they can continue to finish out the new build and avoid having to temporarily relocate before the home is ready for occupancy.

The Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team shines in complicated scenarios. We pride ourselves on structuring contracts that work for all sides, ensuring success for all parties. This sale was just another example of how we are dedicated to the long term goals of our clients. From the initial consultation, to the acquisition of the new lot, to the sale of the existing home – we were laser-focused on getting the best results for our client.

If you want to work with a team that will give you Ritz-Carlton® level service, call The Carpenter | Kessel Homeselling Team. Outstanding Service – Proven Results.
