This past week something very interesting happened at Focus Realty Group, KW Lakeland. We took a listing for a lovely home at 3925 Chart Prine Rd, Lakeland FL 33810. It was an older home with a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom main home and a 2 bedroom, 1 bath mother in law apartment / suite, and had a large 3,200 square feet machine shop on almost 6 acres of land in North Lakeland. (See available homes with in law suites). This home had the quintessential, multi-generational, family floor plan design.

The listing went live on Friday March 3, 2017. We held and open house on Saturday March 4, 2017. There were 27 families that visited the open house. We received 6 offers on the home and a contract was executed Monday March 6, 2017. Also, the final contract price was about $12,000 more than the list price. Wow! (I love being a Realtor in Lakeland, FL).

So, what happened? Yes, Focus Realty Group did an amazing job marketing and selling the home. (Of course I had to say this). Also, the home was rather unique. It had an in law suite, lots of land and a machine shop.

This morning I looked up all homes currently available in Central Florida with in law suites. There were only 9 homes available, and some of them were very expensive pieces of real estate. See my search results here.

So, if you need a home with an in law suite and are looking in the resale market, you may be waiting a while. Sorry. However, there is another, faster way.
