1137 Ravenhurst located in Moss Bluff LA
UNDER CONTRACT IN 6 DAYS!!
1137 Ravenhurst is a 5 year old home that featured 3 bedrooms, 2 baths 1736 sq ft of living and a great covered back porch! It is a picture perfect home that also has a 2 car attached garage and is neatly landscaped!
The interior of the home is just as appealing as the exterior curb appeal and is attractive to first time home buyers!
The Seller purchased the home in 2008 and due to a job transfer listed the house with a small independent Broker in April 2010-May 2011.
During the year the house was listed there were no offers or interest from Buyers. The house was not being exposed rs to Buyers and was listed too high for the market. Despite price reductions, the home never went under contract, so the Seller who had already relocated rented it for a year...May 2011-June 1 2012
The seller was discouraged and wanted to purchase a home in his new location but could not as long as he still owned 1137 Ravenhurst here in Louisiana. The seller was motivated and needed the home to be aggressively marketed. Lucky for me and the Seller, he found me on the Internet and contacted me to list his Moss Bluff LA home.
I educated the Seller with what the real estate market value was and provided him with a comparative market analysis suggesting he list the home at $178,000. Not only did I list the home doing the real estate basics of getting the house in the MLS and putting a sign up, I created a marketing blitz for the house with Virtual tour, You Tube video, photo albums, websites, blogs and social media. In 6 days this home went under contract! Calls from interested buyers continued even when the home went under contract.
Moss Bluff, LA is attractive to Southwest Louisiana home buyers due to the larger lot sizes, and also the availability of 100% financing! Marketing is an important segment in listing a home for sale. If your home does not get exposure to where buyers are looking, it will be hard to spot in the inventory. 2010-2011 were still good years for Lake Charles Real estate sales with a steady healthy market. However during that time period, this home sat idle for a year simply due to a lack of exposure and incorrect pricing so the Buyers were missed.
If you are considering selling a home in Southwest Louisiana, I would love to speak with you and highlight my marketing plan to get your home SOLD!!
