Dear Friends,


Just a quick note to let you know how we might be able to help you or anyone you feel comfortable introducing to us.


This May, Rob & Deb McGowan called to interview us and have me stop by to take a look at their home and help them with the idea of simplifying life by moving into a townhome.


The next day, I had the grand tour of their home and took pictures of all the features and updates they had done.  It was one of those properties that just “felt like home” and was in move-in condition.


Marlene and I then spent about 3 hours working on Rob & Deb’s evaluation, so they would have an accurate picture (through our “Pin-Point Pricing Campaign”) of what the market value of their house was, the different listing prices that we could ask and what to expect from our team & marketing system.


Together we had a fun discussion about what was important to Rob & Deb about making a move…


There were a few things that really stood out in my mind.  Rob & Deb:
1) didn’t want to be for sale for a year (like it happened to them once before)
2) wanted to be moved by summer
3) wanted to work with realtors who had integrity
4) to buy a secure be able to be “lock & leave”


After going back and forth on a few pricing options, the list price was settled and we put our marketing campaign into gear.


Now this is a great story!  Within days we had two buyers view Rob & Deb’s home and one of the buyers thought it was “just perfect” for his situation.  Within hours, the offer was negotiated subject to financing, inspection and viewing the Property Disclosure Statement.


We have found that 75% of the time, after we have an accepted offer, there should be no critical glitches and the property is sold. 25% of the time there can be issues that are deal breakers.


So after 6 days of waiting...we got the “green lights” and subject were removed.  A “SOLD” sticker was hanging on the For Sale sign...Congrats Rob &’s celebration time!


Your friends in the business,


Larry & Marlene
