Selling for a Profit and Moving Up – It Can Still Happen!

These Sellers bought their house in Ballard, made beautiful improvements to it including a new kitchen, french doors to a great TREX deck and a much improved basement media room, and then decided it was time to move on. Yearning for more closet space and a 2nd bathroom they decided to put their Ballard gem on the market.

We met up with the couple on March 17th to discuss plans to get the house market ready. Suggestions such as updating their ancient furnace, paring down and rearranging their furniture, painting, carpeting, and more were thrown out to help improve the houses presentation. Remember, selling is all about presentation, promotion and price! It took about a month to get the house market ready. Once the professional photos were done, the virtual tour ready, and the marketing plan in place, we launched 7751 Dibble into the marketplace. After our first open house on April 18th, exactly 1 month after our initial meeting, we were sitting down with 3 offers in hand! After Marco’s master negotiating we were able to get a super clean offer above list price and closed exactly one month after that on May 17th!

The whole process took only 2 months from start to finish and resulted in the house selling in only 3 days for more than list price! 

Congrats and we can’t wait to celebrate in your new house in Magnolia!

And here what the Buyer’s lender had to say about working with us on this tranaction: “Marco, I simply wanted to tell you that I have never seen such a clean transaction sheet in 20 years of mortgage lending!  Thank you and your assistant for making my life so easy!!  Your transaction sheet should be made into a template for all to use. I look forward to a smooth closing.  My compliments to you!!” -Rita Reeve, Guild Mortgage
