The Colony Park Story
From the day the sign went up, to the day the For Sale sign came down… it was less than 30 days.
While meeting the clients for the first time, we completed a walk thru, an assessment, and put together a strategy to sell quick. They were ready to put in their 2 weeks notice and move on to their next adventure in life. The sellers took the weekend to prepare their home, pack away personal items, deep clean, and handle any items that needed attention before a parade of buyers walked through.
The sellers were in the home less than 3 years and wanted to get the most amount of money in the shortest time frame. They knew their purchase price and the cost of their additions such as a nice new deck for entertaining and dining and an oversized storage shed (the size of a 1 car garage). They had the price in mind of what they wanted and needed to make in order for them to sell. We pulled the comparable sales in the past months and their magic number was right in line with the market.
After a weekend of cleanup and preparations, the for sale sign was up, we set an appointment for the photo session, and within 24 hours the home was officially for sale.
Along with the home going live in our local MLS, we advertise on Zillow, Realtor.com, Homes.com, Trulia, and over 500 websites worldwide. Although those are good means of advertising. Facebook is the website that I know is the single most visited website and people spend the most time on every single day. And they don’t log in once or twice, the average user checks in nearly 10 times per day. I go where the people go, so I utilize a lot of Facebook marketing.
I took several calls and messages from Internet leads and other agents for more information and to schedule showings. I had several inquiries and scheduled showings through Facebook. By day 2 we had our first offer that left us a few thousand short of the sellers magic number. By day 4 we had a 2nd offer that was closer, but still a bit short of what the seller felt comfortable with. By day 6 we had our 3rd offer (from a Facebook post) that sealed the deal.
That week we had our escrow locked in, within 10 days our home and septic inspections complete, and we were on our way. We closed in 28 days. I represented both the buyer and seller and everyone was happy.
The new homeowner is a happy investor. He will be renting the home on a long term lease and will be making a profit off his investment.
