sellers: Buyers are looking for homes in the Bigelow neighborhood in East Olympia WA - 07/01/19 02:54 PM

Do you own a home in the Bigelow neighborhood and are thinking about selling?

My listing at 420 Henry Street NE, Olympia WA 98506 sold in June 2019 for $280,000 ($30,100 over the asking price), received seven formal offers with more on the way, and a bidding war ensued.  After three days of being on the market, the sellers had to decide on just one buyer.  Six buyers did not get this home and may be still looking to buy. 

What made these sellers successful in their sale?
The sellers prepped the home by cleaning it.  I cannot emphasize enough how cleaning a … (1 comments)

sellers: I think my buyer just bought the dirtiest house in the county - 11/01/17 03:06 PM
I think my buyer just bought the dirtiest house in the county, and she’s really happy about it!  Why?  Because she knows she saved about $25,000, all because of dirt.
She is not like most buyers.  She has great vision and can see (and smell) beyond the filth in front of her.  (I, on the other hand, spent most of the showing outside because I just couldn’t take it.  And then I was even more distraught when I noticed the smell followed me and clung to my clothes!)
The only advantage I can see of a dirty home is the money buyers can … (5 comments)

sellers: How these sellers made $60,000 on their Lacey, WA house in just 15 months - 11/08/16 08:08 AM
"How these sellers made $60,000 on their Lacey, WA house in just 15 months" seems like a pretty sensational headline and I usually don't start out my blog posts this way, but this is absolutely true.  Here's how these sellers did it.
My clients purchased this newly-constructed home in July 2014 for $409,950 in Lacey, WA.  Fifteen months later in October 2016, they sold the home in just 7 days for $470,000.
How did these sellers get the most amount of money for the home in the least amount of time, and came out ahead after just buying the home 15 months ago?
