With retirement approaching and their new forever home in sight, Mark and Terri were ready to take the big step of selling the house that had been home to their family for almost 30 years.
Mark and Terri's family home:
1551 Misty Wood Drive, Roseville, California
The Challenge: How do we sell for more money, with good terms, with less stress.
They received good advice from another qualified agent in the area but felt like something was missing. They were looking for a more active approach when it came to handling the marketing of their home. We met with Mark and Terri several months ago to create a plan to sell their home. We guided them through the process and helped them prepare their home for the market.
How we helped: By listening to their needs and putting a plan together.
We helped them stage their home. We helped showcase their property with beautiful photos, a stunning website, and we even produced a video where they were able to tell the story of their family home and what it’s meant to them throughout the years.
The X-Factor: Our Marketing is active NOT passive
After Mark and Terri put all the energy into staging, and making the house shine for photos, and going on camera, how BOLD would it be to just post the pictures online and wait for the buyer to arrive? NOT on this team. We advertised their property to thousands of people to get their home maximum exposure.
The Launch: How you "go on market" matters.
Mark and Terri allowed us to host a wine and cheese event catered by a local winery where we hosted over 40 individuals. We also held two open houses and had over 30 groups of people in attendance. A few of the attendees had actually already submitted offers on the home!
Challenge Solved: Multiple offers over asking price.
They needed much of the equity from their home so that they could successfully retire and move on to the next chapter in their life. We presented 6 offers to them within the first 5 days of being on the market.
We helped them decide on an offer that earned them almost $30k more than their asking price and helped them to set a new record high for the neighborhood. No other house has sold for more in the last decade!
Happily Ever After:
Mark and Terri are thrilled to take this next step towards retirement with an extra $30,000 in the bank and we are forever grateful to have been a part of their success story.
Congratulations to Mark and Terri!
