There is nothing quite like the SOLD sign going up on one of my blue and white post signs! But behind the fact that I do get paid for all this FUN, there are deeper reasons for me to be happy to see that BOLD SOLD sign!
First, my sellers are so happy to be moving on to their next adventures. Their future is always different. Some go on to smaller homes in bigger cities, some to larger homes in smaller cities, and others move just down the road to a new adventure. But, I love having met them, their family members, pets and heard their dreams. Moreover I really get excited to be a part of the story line, and envision with them the future now that the property transition is behind them. It is HARD work, just so you know.
This home is a case in point. Our family on Kenwood were both hardworking parents, full time professionals, and trying to have a life. Their children are small, they had worked very diligently to prepare an older home for their lives there, and then to spruce and shine it up for the real estate market. Their favorite Realtor let them know that their timing was not the best during the heat of summer, and we spent many hours prepping and STAGING the home for potential shoppers.
Their little dog had to be corralled each time we had a showing, the kids moved here and there at the drop of a hat, but still laundry had to be done, food prepared and they LIVED in a home while it was staged for the summer real estate field. Oh my! Better than a carnival ride for causing a stomach ache. This just happened to be their puzzle this summer, and they pulled out the stops.
That is NOT easy people! And they did an outstanding job of it. The house was kept very neat and tidy, the clothes put away, bathrooms spiffed, floors vacuumed twice a day no doubt, and all the other moving parts of living were hidden from view as if their home was a model! And as a result their home received the SOLD sign.
A seller’s market? Sure! But a home still must be presented at her highest and best to receive the good fortune of being selected by the very astute and sometimes picky buyers of 2017.
Thanks a ton for all your hard work Kevin and Katie, and best wishes on your forward motion.
