Sold in Four Days, Full Price, Quick Close.

lateafternoonBased on what you hear in the media, you may assume nothing at all is selling; but that would be an inaccurate assumption. Take my achingly hip recent listing at SE 42nd and Clinton for example. It’s a textbook example of what it takes to sell a home promptly, even in this market.

The homeowner had lived here for about ten years. During that time, he’d done a great job of upgrading and caring for his home.

When he decided to sell, we discussed a number of budget-conscious things he should do to bring the home into peak form to sell. We were careful not to get obsessed with perfection but to balance expenditures with likely return-on-investment. To the Seller’s credit, he did everything he needed to do, working his tail off in the process.

Then, we spent a half a day visiting his competition and reviewing recent sales in the area. Again to the Seller’s credit, he was realistic about price and integrated his timeframe into price considerations. Ours was a productive collaboration all round.

And the result was fifty brokers at the broker’s open, enthusiastic reviews of price and condition, his phone ringing non-stop to schedule showings and an accepted, full price offer in four days, and a closed transaction in less than three weeks.
