This lovely single level home was one of those properties you just LOVE to represent. The seller was a lovely, hard working gal who did everything right to poise her home for sale. The septic was pumped, windows were washed, and all the repairs that she knew should be addressed had been. Beyond the obvious she realized that after so many years in one place she must get rid of things. She purged, boxed, and overall just tried hard to get the house free of all her personal things. In the end she elected to move to her new residence and have the house cleaned and staged for showing. No one can suggest anyone else to make that decision but her. She says the only thing she regretted was not doing it when she was “years younger”!
What a fresh approach to moving. She just moved ahead one day at a time, dealing with each day with what she had. Some days she was unable to move she was so tired, but she still went through papers, tossed, sorted, and boxed anyway. Once she had the final “estate sale” and moved out of her home, she was delighted to be able to begin her new adventures.
The buyer is darling! She appreciates all the little things that the seller had done to the house, and especially was fond of her furniture and color choices. It is so nice to represent a home sale when the buyer and seller are doing all they can to be reasonable and work things out. Both sides win in the end.
Thanks for reading these little blogs about the closings. They might just inspire you to understand when it is your turn that he negotiation table can be round. By that I mean that EVERYONE can win if they are able to give a little bit.
In this transitional marketplace, having an agent with experience in “getting it done” matters. Call me and I will explain more! In the mean time, enjoy every single day of your holiday seasons. Beginning with Halloween, all the way through the Super Bowl, try to remember that it is about love and sharing that make celebrations special.
Sending you all warm wishes.
