2824 Wilmot Is For Sale @Shandon.

WilmotFrontLightReaders of the blog…get ready for a string of listings we’ll be presenting to Columbia’s Downtown real estate market.  The first listing I’m going to publicize is 2824 Wilmot Ave., in Shandon – 29205. As you can tell from the street number and photo, this house is smack in the middle of the neighborhood and loaded with classic Shandon charm.

You may recognize ‘Wilmot’ from posts of years past. This will be the third time we’ve ‘turned’ (or blogged about) this home. The first closing was one of the first true ‘trade’ transactions of my career.

I’ll post more about the home when it hits the market. In the meantime, be on the lookout for more listings coming to market. To name a few, streets include Blossom @425,000, Wellington @549,000, Laurens @390,000, Wilmot @549,000, Vallejo @125,000, Olde Knight @649,000, a new build on Kipling @550,000, Macgregor @309,000, new build on Macgregor @599,000, and Adger @1,285,000.

If you or anyone you know would like to see 2824 Wilmot Avenue, or know more about what’s coming to market before I have a chance to blog about the listings, give us a call @ 803-758-1669 or email fjones@cbunited.com.

If you would like to know what your home may be worth, please use the same contact info and we’ll contact you or send you a Comparative Market Analysis…no problem (free, of course./no strings).  In the meantime, or for kicks and a guestimate, give www.GuaranteedSale.com for a spin.  It’s free, and I’m sure you’ll find it interesting.

Thank you!

100 Closings – Year To Date…


It kinda snuck up on me this year, but last Thursday we closed on our 100th transaction side of 2014. To be sure, 100 sales is a fun benchmark for three salespeople and a team manager. In short... THANK YOU, COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA!!! Per the … [Continue reading]
