On Nov 29 I met with a referral- a friend of mine from MN suggested that this particular customer call me. He was looking to sell his home in Bonita Springs. It was a small, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home just off US 41.
While preparing for the meeting, it became obvious that there is very little inventory in the area. Little inventory= premium price. Based on recently sold properties, I determined that his home likely had a current market value of about $175,000. However, being that there were NO active listings even close to that price- most of the houses in the area had a much larger square footage, making them much more expensive, I suggested that he list his house for $195,000. Since we were meeting on Nov 29, I advised the seller that it may be slow going through the holidays. I told him to expect activity to pick up in Jan. I also promised that I would do additional property promotions come Jan 5.
Within days of putting the listing we had 2 showings, both who expressed an interest in the home. One week later, we had an offer for $189,500! The buyer wanted to close in 2013 for tax purposes…. which we were able to accommodate.
I can’t sell every house in 30 days- but I did sell many that quickly in 2013. I would like to try and do the same for you, or your friends. If you know someone looking to sell- or if you are wondering about the process- please think of me. I promise to treat you, your friends or family like I would want to be treated. I will walk you through the process, make sure you understand every step and I PROMISE TO BE AVAILABLE WHEN YOU WANT TO TALK.
