Level Heads Get Another Home Sold in Anderson Township!

Level Heads Get Another Home Sold in Anderson Township!

We LOVE to make our clients happy!  Finding that just right home is the goal when we're working with buyers, but sometimes the road isn't totally smooth! That was the case getting our buyers to closing for this home yesterday: 

1070 Eight Mile Rd Anderson Township Ohio

Our buyers are decisive people.  When we first started looking they found a home they liked, and we didn't even leave the home before writing an offer!  We didn't get that one, it went multiple offers almost immediately and the cash offer trumped our financed offer.

Not long after another home that matched and this time our luck was better. Price and terms agreed to, even some creative work to make it viable for buyers and sellers, but THEN the inspection.  There was a lot more wrong than was apparent to the naked eye, and it could have led to SIGNIFICANT expense later. The sellers weren't in position to fix anything, so best for our buyers to walk away.

Not too long after we found this unexpected home with acreage.  Conveniently located just a bit off a major road to suit our buyers' commutes, along with the detached garage, large covered porch, decks and nicely updated upper level, the home was JUST what they'd hoped to find.  Again, we didn't mess around waiting and got an offer in that night and we're under contract quickly.

But as with any older home, things can get interesting during the inspection, and this one did!  Some fairly significant items were found and we all took some extra time to work through the inspection negotiations.  We've seen similar situations go BOOM!!! and kill a deal.  It's crucial in situations like this that ALL parties involved stay cool and collected!  And that's what we had for this deal:  the listing agent was a pro, the sellers were cooperative, our buyers stayed with the big picture and of course we didn't add any drama from our side.

After a coupe of extra weeks, a mutually acceptable agreement was reached, and from there it was on to completing the financing requirements and taking possession yesterday!

The buyers are looking forward to making this home just the way they want it, and it was fun to see the excitement yesterday as they walked around their new home!

If you need a dedicated buyer's agent team to help you with your purchase, just give The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite a call!  You can bet whether the road is smooth or bumpy, we'll keep a level head to make sure you get the best possible deal!

Ed, Thanks!  Nice to help this family find their new home!

Debb, We appreciate the fact that our buyers never lost hope.  We've heard enough stories of buyers not getting their first deal or two and thinking it's their agent's fault.  And the listing agent for this one was a real pro and a pleasure to work with too!  Love it when it works out that way.

John, Sunday night/Monday morning a bit of a dusting.  23 when I got in the car this morning, highs around 40 today.  A bit early for us to be quite this cold.

Anita, We've been fortunate this year, the listing agents I've worked with repping our buyers have been (for the most part) very communicative and responsive.  Makes everything easier when both sides hold up a professional standard.

Beth, Not much of it, but it's here!  It'll melt soon :)

Since I've been in the Rain I've read many many posts for just sold homes... Never have I read one that I enjoyed as much as this one... You guys are totally awesome and I truly mean that... Anyone that works with you guys is blessed, the problem is that most will never know that... unless they worked with someone before working with you...  I sincerely wish there were more Liz & Bill Spears in our business, how great would that be!!!!

Beth, Our philosophy is pretty simple:  "It's about THEM".  We want happy clients.  We don't push (unless we need to to keep them from losing a house they want).  Final decisions are theirs after we provide the best advice we can.  Our ego has no place in the transaction and I'll do my best to keep things "friendly" with the other side without ever compromising what's best for our clients.  Agitating the other side is rarely going to be good for our clients.

Excited buyers are always my very favorite part.  Which reminds me that I never talked to a past buyer I played phone tag with last week.  Had the same kind of ... until we found the right house and worked out some issues with them too.

Sounds like great work all around!  Always nice when everyone realizes buyers & sellers really have the same goal in mind - to transfer a home from one to the other.  Playing nice & working together can make all the difference.  Congratulations on the sale and to your happy buyers.

Bobbie, Definitely!  Everyone wanted the same thing, it was just a matter of figuring out the equitable way to get there.

Mitch, Really chilly this morning!  Have had to scrape ice off the windshield two days in a row.

Barbara, It certainly is!

Tammy, Sometimes it goes this way, fortunately most times not.  However, lately with my buyers I think rare has been the time the first offer on a home has actually gotten it done.

John, And that's the thing that gets lost when people let egos and emotions run amok.  We ALL want the same thing, we just need to find that middle ground that works.

Tammie, It's a VERY good feelling every time :)

Inspections can be the scary part. Thankfully, in condo sales they are ususally pretty easy. But not always! And if you can keep everyone from getting "hot under the collar" everyone ends up happy!

Congratulations Bliz!

Lou, Thanks!

Thom, It's a bit painful to pay the inspection fee and NOT buy the home, but when you look at those few hundred dollars vs. the potential to have been stung by tens of THOUSANDS of dollars for repairs after buying the home if you didn't do the inspection, the few hundred are a GREAT investment.

Joe, And props to the listing agent also!  Always steady and professional the whole way through.
