They Only Had To Walk The Dogs Twice!

One of our requests to our sellers is if they have pets bigger than a hamster, we ask that during showings they and their pets clear the premises.  In general we think it's not a good idea for sellers to be home as it proves very distracting to buyers.  And barking dogs?  That's a double dose of distracting.  And even the friendliest of dogs may have a little Cujo in them when strangers walk into THEIR home.


The good news?  When home sellers and their agents work together to prep a home for sale AND have a VERY thorough understanding of market conditions, that disruption to their personal lives can be minimized.

Such was the case this week for our latest listing.  We'd met with the sellers over a month ago and reviewed what to expect from the market and what needed to be done to optimize their home's ability to quickly sell.  The sellers did everything on the list, and even a little bit more!

Saturday pictures were taken and listing documents signed.  Our photographer even did an impromptu portrait session with the sellers and their two dogs!

The home went on the market Monday around noon and we quickly had showings scheduled!  By late afternoon we had an offer in hand and verbal agreement before bedtime.  A few signatures added the next morning to formalize acceptance and no more dog walkies required! 

We're on to inspections and expecting a smooth path to closing on this Poplar Hill subdivision home located in Lebanon Ohio.

Hello Liz and Bill - congratulation on another sale-in-the-making.  It's not really ,amazing, yet still quite nice, when sellers and their real estate representation work together to create the right impression as they welcome prospective buyers to their home for sale.

It's good teamwork, and we love being able to take some of the uncertainty out of a client's plans as quickly as possible.

Congratulations Bill and Liz- It shows you that things can go smoothly if everyone does what they need to do. I have to admit it was a pain when we were selling a home and I had to get my Brittany, who was blind) into our SUV. But you have to do it!

With the number of furry ones we have, I think the only way we can ever sell is to buy our new home first and move the herd :)

Good morning Bill. A cooperative seller with pets is a big help to get a house sold. Congrats on a win-win-win! Enjoy your day

Definitely.  Every now and then we have a home for sale and the tenant (or owner) is less than diligent about scooping the litter boxes.  Not a good thing for a buyer to smell.

That's wonderful about the speedy accepted offer and about the sellers who listened and then did more! Excellent job.

Have a fantastic Thursday.
