Is the market really down..or is it that there are just overpriced homes that need work out there?
I took my client out on showing a couple weeks ago and as i was getting ready to leave I thought I would take a quick look to see if there were any more listings that she may like...well there was a listing I pulled up..didn't know the secretary had "just put it in the MLS" until I called to set up the showing. It was right in her price range and sounded great...newer, rehabbed property, no pictures yet, but I thought i would give it a try.
We went through 4 others before we came to this one. Well we came to the new listing last and the second we walked in I just knew this would be the "one". Newer home..open vaulted ceilings, stainless appliances. Well what else does a younger first-time buyer want?! Well this is it!
This seller did it right! Great work on the house, but I truly believe the thing that did it was he priced it very, very well. He didn't get greedy, and let me tell you he could have gotten more for this home! I told my buyer if she waited to make a decision that house would be gone within the day, so we went back to my office and wrote the offer. I absolutely loved the selling agent as well. I had worked with her before and she is a definate straight shooter...no games, no hassle, and up front honesty! I just love working with agents that are like that..everything just goes so smoothly!
Anyway, the moral of the story?.....Buyers are coming out and if your house is priced right and shows great you just may get that lucky 3 hours to sold story as well!
