Don't you love it when you are right. Especially when it it to your client's benefit.
I recently listed a home for a couple that had remodeled it. The husband was a general contractor and licensed plumber and elctrician so I should not have been suprised to see the fantastic job they had done. The home was in a small mill town located in my area and home prices are low to begin with. Not much over $100k. The area has seen some hard times but recently has become one of those areas where people are looking to buy because they know they can buy so cheap and then renovate and have a great home for not much money. Many of these homes have never been updated and were originally built in the 1930's when textiles were king. They usually sell around $80k.
In advising my clients, I told them this was truly a great home and the rennovations were excellent. I advised a price and they laughed. They said no one would pay that in their area. I put it on the market for a lot less than I thought it should be but it was what my clients wanted and they stood to make a good profit. 12 hours later we had three offers and all three were over asking price. They were shocked and delighted at the same time.
I told them this was one of those times I really enjoyed saying "I told you so!" They laughed and asked if I would be willing to list another property for them. Of couse I will.
