My husband Jimmy and I returned to Oxford 11 years ago as Jimmy was hired as the project manager of a high end development. His career in custom building and renovations inspired my interest in real estate. I’ve always enjoyed connecting people; in my capacity as a real estate agent I am able to connect people with properties and better yet to the community.
Recently Jimmy and I were able to collaborate when a pipe burst in one of my listings. My client asked me to select finishes while Jimmy implemented the vision. Once the project was complete I listed the property and it had a contract within a week. Currently we are collaborating on a project at 412 Longest Road.
The Oxford real estate market is vibrant and booming. Currently there are more buyers than inventory. The obvious product of this shortage of inventory and high demand is rising prices. However the escalating prices are not deterring buyers from purchasing as interest rates are still low and renting in Oxford is expensive. In many cases buying is a better option than renting for a family or a young professional.
There are still good deals to be found in this hot market. 825 Maplewood Drive is a spacious, four bedroom, three bath on a private lot in the family friendly and conveniently located Woodlawn subdivision. This well built home features newer mechanics and has lots of potential. Priced at $249,000, this home won’t last long!
One of the oldest plantation homes in Lafayette County, Oak Grove, was built in 1838 by local planter George Washington Price. The house was the model for the Old Frenchman’s Place in Faulkner’s The Hamlet. This legendary six bedroom, three bath estate was restored in 2005 with respect to historic accuracy while adding new plumbing, electric and HVAC. The chef’s kitchen boasts soapstone counters, custom cabinets, and top of the line stainless appliances. Located 10 minutes from Oxford, the home is situated on a private lake and surrounded by trails through 80 acres of pasture and hardwood forest. This property is truly one of a kind!
