This is a great example of "doing it right" as a great listing agent in Tallahassee. If you price the home to sell, even in a buyers' market, you create an optimum situation for the home seller.

Who would have thought that a modest home in an average neighborhood without A-rated schools would create a feeding frenzy?  But it did.  As soon as it went on the market, the showings started and every showing brought an offer!  The owners settled on one that brought smiles to their faces with terms that fitted their needs exactly.  It's great to know that this can happen even in a slow economy and depressed housing market.

The secret? A combination of hard work, knowledge of the local market, and giving buyers what they want - Value.  The sellers put in a lot of effort to get the house in great condition, including a new roof.  The kitchen and baths, although small, had been updated and were sparkling clean.

Early on, the sellers consulted with a professional stager whose ideas helped them focus on how to give the house universal appeal. They rented a storage unit and removed many pieces of furniture and items that they could live without for a few months. The house looked like a model home.

Outside, the owner painted the shutters and door in a color suggested by the stager and took pains to clean up the landscaping and add a new mailbox.  It took the sellers roughly 3 weeks to get everything in shape. 

The house was priced where the local market data showed comps were selling and voila - the offers started pouring in.  A home in great condition, with universal appeal, that's priced right will always produce the same results.
