SOLD IN ***** 9 DAYS***** 843 Middle Street, Middletown CT

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc. RES.0761759

This does not happen every day, and I wanted to share that when you price a property correctly... IT WILL SELL.

I did a CMA for a client at 843 Middle Street, Middletown, CT.  I spent time with her and went over all her options.  She took my suggestion of listing the property a *little* under Median price... which stood out from other listings in the area.

She might have priced it a *little* low, but she doesn't want to sit on the property month after month waiting for an offer.  Only to have to lower the price again... to where it is NOW.

After an open house I had.. thanks to my stuffed bear.... we had a multi offer situation... haven't seen this in years.  She might have priced it a little low initially, but the multi offer brought it over the Median price... IN LESS THAN 9 DAYS.....

I sat down to write up the offer on March 9th... and we closed April 19th... today.  Remember the "2 P's" in real estate sells property.... PICTURES AND PRICE.

Congratulations Valerie! Wise advice you gave these Owners. If they had priced it a 'little' higher than the median price, it would have been another story completely!

Al and Peggy... Exactly.  If it were priced higher, it might *still* be sitting there.  I'm just so glad that my client was happy on how things turned out.

Hi Valerie,

Congratulations on the quick sale. I recently sold a lot close to where I live and we went from listing it to closing in 17 days. I thought that was good but not as good as your 9!!  Great job.

Steve

Debbie... Not to puff my wares, but if people are looking to sell their home, maybe this sign will get their attention.

Judith.. I tried a different approach and it worked... maybe others will follow suit, and we will begin to sell more homes.

George.. I think it would be great if all transactions would go this smoothly.  It has been a long time since I haven't had a sale with issues.  But, hey, I'll take it no matter how it comes.

Barbara.. Coming down in price initally only to have an offer come in that goes over the median price.. what a concept.  I think I will try this on my next "presentation" when it comes to listing a home.

Will.. I hate to admit it, but that "sold in 9 days" is OLD, I mean VERY OLD.... this was made back in the good ole days when it was a sellers market.
