Madison Park Real Estate: Market Disruption 2017

Real estate update if you are thinking about selling your Madison Park home!Madison Park homes for sale

Recently Molly and I listed 1803 39th Ave E in Seattle's Madison Park neighborhood.  The seller had interviewed many and we were just two Madison Park Realtors she was talking to. She was a long time resident of Madison Park and fully prepared to list with some of the same Madison Park listing agents that many of her neighbors and other Madison Park residents had listed with historically.  We had to really argue with this seller about why she should list with us and why our expert niche marketing was exactly what she needed in Madison Park.  The "local experts" told her she should list her Madison Park home for sale with a list price of $1,600,000. It was bad advice. 

A word on "Local Experts" Just because a broker hangs their license at a different brokerage than the standard brick and mortar office in a particular neighborhood does not discount their expertise in said neighborhood. Likewise, just because a broker does hang their license there does not make them a good agent.  Dig deeper into not only number of sales, but look at those sales and determine if the sales were genuine efforts to make the clients the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time.

Molly and I both happen to also be local experts in Madison Park.  We both have family that live or have lived there, we shop there, we work there, we play there.  In addition, we are experts at niche marketing and Madison Park requires bigger thinking than just the local neighborhood if you want the biggest and best return for your home when you sell it. 

We listed this Madison Park property for $335,000 MORE (!!!!!) than the next broker at $1,995,000. 

The seller was very wary of our price, but we assured her we had a number of niche markets that we were targeting with the property and that we were experts at this.  She trusted us to handle it and we did.  Prior to the review date we had set, we received a cash offer and we sold this Madison Park home for 11.5% OVER THE LIST PRICE at $2,225,000. The seller was simply stunned at our ability to not only reach further for her, but also our stellar delivery.  We had invested the time, energy, and effort into making this investment really pay off for our seller and it showed. We hired a professional photographer, had drone footage taken, advertised on Facebook, Instagram, Google, we blogged about the home on platforms such as Active Rain which is the largest National  - if not International real estate blogging platform, and we advertised the home on our Madison Park Real Estate website.  We hosted a brokers open, called our network at Amazon, and sent out jumbo color postcards.  There wasn't a stone unturned for marketing for this home and in the first day it was sold. This is not an exhaustive list, but rather the highlights of what we did to reach every possible buyer for this Madison Park home. 


"Please let us know if you have a Madison Park home you are thinking about listing.  We would be happy to provide you with our opinion and show you what we would do for you. "
