Just Sold By F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate in NW Indiana Jeff & I always joke around with our listing clients about how a showing in Real Estate is somewhat like a 1st Date...

You get a first impression only once, so make it Look Good, Smell Good and make them linger....and they may come back with an offer :)

Sparkling clean de-clutterred rooms, fresh flowers, soft music, freshly baked cookies or refreshments at the kitchen table with a hospitable note to take a break, stay awhile, and enjoy:)

It's no wonder these sellers (who implemented every one of our showing suggestions to the T - including putting excess items in temporary storage and pricing the Home according to current market com-parables), received more than one offer on their property! Total time from for sale sign up the day of listing to signing of the closing documents = only 65 days! (Now that's fast for NW Indiana).

Professional Advice in any field, can be ignored or applied -> the end results will reflect if you are following the plan suggested to you by your professional or not :)

Sometimes variables like price, condition, location or surplus homes for sale in the same area affects market time beyond any recommendations we may offer.

Congrats on your persistance to find a ready, willing and able buyer and get the home sold, even if it took longer than average market time Robert!

hve a great weekend!

sincerely
