Just a quick note to let you know how we might help someone you introduce to us. I want to tell you a story that I haven’t told anybody!
Recently our client, I’ll call her Sara, introduced me to her friend Russ. Russ was a hard working nice guy, who was finding that things were tightening up in his financial life and really didn’t know what to do…so he did what many people do…and just stopped making payments.
He had fallen behind in a lot of areas…especially the municipal tax payments to the point where he got “The Letter” (tax sale—the city was going to sell the property).
While reviewing his situation, we found he still had a great equity position – that he could sell and pocket over $50,000 after paying everyone. I made some suggestions on how to best showcase the property for selling purposes and reviewed 3 different prices to consider. Russ chose a price that we thought would achieve a sale in the next 30 – 60 days.
Things were going like clock work with showings and we did get an offer accepted within the first 37 days…but there were some buyer issues and subjects were not removed.
As the market continued to soften. our property began to appear overpriced. So we refined our asking price to reflect other properties that had recently sold as well as properties that were for sale.
Then it happened—within 7 days we had found the right buyer, and after some encouraging and negotiating we got the right price…it was sold! As for Russ, a big sigh of relief…he had his life back and a large amount of cash in the bank. The stress had evaporated.
In our current buyers market, with over 10,000+ listings in the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board, there are so many great buys available. Buyers are having a hay day with the low interest rates and with so many homes to consider—finding the perfect place to call home is very attainable (currently prices are in line with 2004 – 2005...what a great
time to buy!!)
Congrats Russ…thanks for trusting our team with marketing your home. Even with all the financial pressures you were under, you truly were a pleasure to work with.
Your real estate consultants for life…
