So, today I placed a home on the market, from a consumer who has been reading my ActiveRain Blog for a couple of months. CaliGal has been living out in California since September 2006 and Mr. CaliGal has been stuck in Poinciana Fl. trying to sell their home. About 2 weeks ago CaliGal e-mailed me to see if I could help them out. Their home had been listed on the market since August 2006 with another REALTOR® but unfortunately they were not able to get it sold. CaliGal had done a GOOGLE search a couple of months ago and lo and behold she found me.
Well, since then, she has been reading my ActiveRain blog regularly, she came to the conclusion that I was the man for the job. Anyway today we finally had a chance to meet. She flew back to Florida last night to spend a few days with her husband and to see about getting their home back on the market. It's the first time they have been together since she went to California last September, so needless to say, we need to get their house sold. We got along great. From reading my Blog so often, CaliGal, knew what I was going to say before I even had a chance to say it. It was awesome.
She knew, before I opened my mouth, "that I wasn't there to tell them what their home was worth but I was there to tell them what we needed to do to get it sold." She knew all about "Range Pricing" and how it works. CaliGal knew all about my website www.poincianaproperties.com, she knew market conditions and how values are declining and how many homes are on the market. She knew everything. She was prepared. She had done her homework. She had read my Blog.
Now folks, this was not a unique experience. I have already placed three homes on the market, in the last 30 days, that were direct results of ActiveRain and the consumer reading my Blog. These Sellers are armed with the right information and they are ready to sell.
What have I done that is special? Nothing. I just write about what I know and my everyday experiences in Real Estate. I tell it like it is. I don't hold anything back and I don't keep things from the consumer. And believe me, it's really appreciated. They want to know. They want the facts. And they don't want to be sold.
So, CaliGal, this post is for you. My goal is to get your house sold as quickly as possible so you and your hubby can be reunited. Have a safe trip back to California. You are in good hands now and I will get this property sold. By the way, here's a link to the visual tour I have just done on your house.
So what do you think? Is ActiveRain great or what?
