Lexington Estates

Prices are up in Lexington Estates, where nine homes sold in the first half of 2018. The top and bottom prices are above what they were in all of 2017. Still even the houses that sell well are getting less per square foot than comparable homes in similar gated communities.

One house broke the $500K mark. 22299 Tupelo Place sold for $510,000, with 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in 3000 square feet. The updated kitchen and some other nice features helped it sell in just one month.

On same cul de sac, the much smaller 22286 Tupelo Place had the low price at $375,000 with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in only 1800 square feet. It has one of the best lot locations in the neighborhood but the house was in sore need of updates throughout. Only one other house sold for less than $400,000 and it was a bank-owned foreclosure.

Six of the nine houses sold for over $450,000. Going for $475,000 was 22176 Braddock Place, a 5-bed, 3-bath model with 3000 square feet and some high end features like marble floors. With all that it’s still less than $160/sq.ft.

The number of sales has increased dramatically in Paraiso (formerly known as Allegro). Seven homes sold in the first half of the year, up from six in all of 2017. There was only one sale under $300K (compared to 3 last year) but the high price was much lower as well.

10130 Fanfare Drive sold for $340,000 with 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths in 2100 square feet. All the other homes that sold were much smaller, most under 1500 square feet.

The lowest price was $290,000 for 22280 Tempo Way. The 3-bedroom with 1700 square feet is the closest house to the main gate and was due for some updates. It took over 8 months to sell. All the other houses sold in less than 2 months and most in 3 weeks or less.
