Despite slowing demand overall in the market, our team was able to guide our wonderful seller through a successful listing and ultra-smooth transaction. What were the key ways that this seller was able to garner multiple offers (11) all above asking, at a final sales price of $700,000, $100,000 over asking?
Transparency on the home condition from the seller Even though this condo was in excellent condition and very well-maintained, the seller opted to do a pre-listing inspection. This allows the buyers to know any and all potential issues with the property and make an offer accordingly.
Staging Now more than ever, it is important to put your home's "best foot forward"! There is a shift in the market, but homes that are well designed and marketed will still garner multiple offers and go over the asking price.
Excellent marketing A beautifully marketed property (staging, photography, social media, website.... etc) will attract not just any buyer, but buyers and agents who want to invest and compete, because they know they are working with a professional team and a high-quality property. Again, the market is shifting and your listing team is a key aspect in selling your home at top value and will give you the best advice on vendors and fixes to succeed!
Congratulations to everyone.
