Going to a listing appointment with a friend.

Most but not all of my business comes from referrals or friends.  People know me for being ethical and getting the job done.   On Wed. a friend of mine asked me to price out her home.   She is not sure she wishes to sell but she is thinking of taking a leave of absence from her work and traveling. 

So I went and took the photo of her home.  Looked it up in the tax records.  Compared it to other like houses with similar characteristics.  Then I spent about an hour driving and looking at the homes to decide whether they seemed better or worse from the outside.   I came up with a price range that I intend to narrow when I see her home. 

All of this is done before I enter her home today.  In a development the work is easier but I am an expert in the older neighborhoods of Boise.  I understand that by crossing certain streets the value can change.   That is why I take the ride in the car.  I need to see how my clients house is situated in her street compared to the others. 

I didn't want my friend to leave but I also know that if she chooses to leave I can get her home sold for the highest possible price.   My friend knows she can trust me to work hard to do the work.  I like to think of my motto " I get the job done".

Wish me luck!

Good Sunday morning Debbie Holmes 

It's great to see you blogging again.  It's been a while!  You're right I too thrive from referrals.  No better testimonial than receiving one!

I never even thought about "driving" and looking at curb appeal and location, condition etc of the active competition rather than just looking at photos thru the MLS.  I'm going to try that.   Thanks for the tip.
