Thinking About Selling Your Magnolia Home? Here Is A Little Secret…
It is interesting to look at the market research and figure out how buyers find theirMagnolia homes. Do they have a great Magnolia Realtor out there pounding the street? Maybe.. But , most Magnolia homebuyers start on the internet. Don't get me wrong - I also am quite proficient at pounding the pavement for my clients, but if you want to get the most exposure when selling your home, then go with the best internet Magnolia listing agent possible. We will surprise you. I promise.
Here is an example of a Magnolia view home that we sold recently:
These Magnolia sellers had several of the TOP Magnolia Realtors out and all of them with the exception of us told them that their home was worth far less than what we at Cooper Jacobs ended up listing it for. Not only did we take the time and really evaluate the market price that would hold up in the Magnolia real estate market, but we also took into consideration the current homes that were on the market - the ones that the buyers would be comparing ours to while on tour. Comparing your home to your current competition is a far better method of determining value than looking at historical sales. Sold comps are valuable as well, but the buyers on the street don't care about those. If they like yours better and the price is in line with the others they are looking at, then you are going to look good. In addition, you have to take into account the Magnolia foreclosures and short sales on the market - there aren't a ton, but they do affect your value. This Magnolia home was sold for over list price in just 3 weeks with multiple offers and many Magnolia listing agents and appraisers have called us since asking us to explain. The explanation is simple: take the time to really serve the client with both pricing and positioning. You need more than them just sticking it on Craigslist or Trulia or Zillow or their own little site. You need your Magnolia Realtor to seriously market your home on the internet. We do that. You can see the above example of our proven success at MagnoliaViewHome.com, but here is a screen shot as well:
Again, as a seller it is important that when you are thinking about listing your Magnolia home you position it correctly not only for the Magnolia real estate market, but also for the internet and what these buyers are looking for. Here is what Magnolia buyers are looking for right now – these are just a few of the search terms used in Google and Bing which brought these buyers to my site (I can’t share all of them or the competition will try and copy what we do, but I wanted to at least show you what I mean):
- Magnolia Waterfront Homes
- Homes with views

- House for sale discovery park wa
- Magnolia homes for sale seattle
- Cooper 23rd Ave W Seattle, WA 98199 house for sale magnolia (one of our Magnolia listings)

Seattle real estate has been a big part of my life for well over a decade since I began my career in real estate,but also before that time when I was in the process of purchasing my own first home. Buying your first home can be quite overwhelming,but I have managed to help many first time home buyers along the way.
Move up Seattle buyers and other types of specialized purchasing is a great passion of mine! I love Seattle houseboats and you can find me down on the docks of Lake Union and Portage Bay several times a week.
