Brookwood Manor Subdivision Appraisal Values

I’ve mentioned this before in prior postings about county appraisal values, but I want to point out again that the appraisal values below come from public records used to determine property taxes.  The appraisal that your loan officer orders on your behalf is usually significantly higher than the county estimates of value.  Make sure to ask your agent to include an appraisal contingency with your offer to make sure that you’re covered in the event that there’s a problem with the appraisal through your mortgage company.

Subdivision Sales Data & History.

I’m always reminding my buyers that they need to make sure they do their homework and confirm all information regarding any listing in which they’re interested.  Of course, I’m always there to help in any way that I can to facilitate the sale.  The Bridlegate subdivision sales data and history presented below came from the county records and obviously needs some explaining when it comes to the million dollar sales prices.  This should raise some eyebrows since both of the active listings have an asking price below $300,000.  I don’t know what really happened, but I have heard about situations in where the original builder doesn’t finish building on all of the lots and then turns around and sells all or some of the lots to another builder in a package deal.  This could explain the million dollar sales prices showing up in a 6 figure community.

Please note that these values are typically lower than the appraisal value that your loan officer will order to secure a home loan.  You should definitely make sure to ask your agent about including an appraisal contingency addendum with any purchase offer that you submit.  This will protect your earnest money and possible force a reduction in sales price without penalty to you in the event that there is an issue with the lender’s appraised value.

Bridle Point Subdivision – Snellville, Ga

Bridle Point Subdivision is one of the neighborhoods in my immediate service area.  Here are the active listings as of today:BridlePoint-Listings

I always advise my clients that the onus ultimately falls on them to confirm all listing details and property information before they close the deal.  This is where I swoop in to help as their real estate professional since I have access to tools that aren’t as easily accessible to the general public.  You will notice that in the 2 listings above, 2 different school systems are notated for these homes in the same subdivision.  This is definitely something that needs to be further investigated if you’re interested in buying one of these homes.  There are hundreds of homes in the Bridle Point Subdivision, so it could be a very real possibility that the neighborhood is split across 2 school zones.
