Oh Happy Day! The First Sale of 2021 Has Closed!!
This Top Producing Gainesville Real Estate Agent doesn't like to go too long between sales. My last closing was in December, exactly two months ago. Since then, I've helped a landlord rent his property and put two listings on the market and helped a buyer get under contract...then back out. It's not that I haven't been busy. When the pay days lag behind what you are doing, as they inevitably do in our line of work, it starts to feel like it's all for nothing.
Today I put my first sale of 2021 in the sold column. My mind wandered to this time last year, wondering if I was under performing. Nope. I'm ahead of schedule. This time last year, all I had was a buyer about to close and a listing coming on the market. Hopefully, I'll stay ahead of my 2020 self and continue to make hay while the sun shines and hit my goal to sell 32 houses this year.
The rest of this week will be spent helping sellers get their listing paperwork together and prep their properties. Every detail means more money. We'll see if the multiple offer madness continues as we move into warmer months.
