Entry Level Home in Upper Land Park Now Sold

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

This morning a seller emailed to share her thoughts about the CMA I sent to her. This is the comparative market analysis, reflecting market conditions and suggesting a listed price. The seller felt the price was $100,000 too low, and said she really needs that extra $100K to move out-of-state, even though she recognizes and acknowledges that achieving a higher price is impossible.

She implied that I could somehow magically create this extra pile of money for her. Like giving her 3 wishes and she only wants to use one lousy wish, gosh darn it. Well, I do try to stick it out until the end. Even when the sale is challenging, like this home that backed to the roaring sound of the freeway, Interstate 5.

One buyer who was very interested was blind. I made the funny but horribly insensitive remark -- and immediately apologized after saying it but I couldn't help myself -- which was too bad they weren't deaf. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: The Story of Closing a Home in Upper Land Park.

Elizabeth, they wanted $100K more???  OH MY, that is quite the request.   I sold a home backing to a roaring highway, and sold in two week, amazingly!

Some sellers think of their house as a bank account to satisfy all their financial  problems when they sell. It doesn't work that way. Have a great weekend.

Joan Cox Yes, not this particular seller though. This was the seller of a home listed by somebody else who wanted to know why it wasn't selling and what I could do to sell it. I was tempted to tell her the same thing her existing agent told her, which was what she wanted to hear, but I can't do that.

Debbie Reynolds The new sellers I mentioned are moving out of California, and they need to sell. So they need to be realistic. It's not like they can just stay there when they can't get their price.
