Sold in San Carlos, California - finding the right approach

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

The sale of 61 Hilltop Drive San Carlos, has recorded

61 Hilltop Drive, San Carlos
Finding the right approach that results in a great sale is always important. In most cases that includes some prep work like painting, minor repairs, and staging followed by listing the property for sale in the MLS, identifying the unique features of the property, preparing marketing pieces, holding open houses, etc.

This particular instance called for a different approach. We prepared marketing pieces (see the web site) and I networked heavily with agents in the area. The property was sold off market with sale terms extremely beneficial to the seller.

When it's time for you to think about selling your home in San Mateo County and the Silicon Valley, give me a call and we'll find the plan that best suits your particular needs.

Thank you, Grant Schneider - web sites are important, and even though we had a pending sale, I didn't cancel the photography; it doesn't hurt to let a buyer know that we're prepared to market if the deal didn't go through. But it did!

Thanks Ron and Alexandra Seigel - one size doesn't fit all, and one approach to getting a great sale doesn't work. Thanks for your nice comments.
