Congratulations! You are Homeless!

Yes, that is exactly what I said to my newest sellers last night.  Their home

just went on the market yesterday. A buyer just waiting for this type of listing

found it within hours of putting the sign in the yard and going live on our MLS. 

They called me to get details while we were on our way to take pictures and

get measurements to enhance our listing on our web site and the Multiple

Listing Service.  Then they called their agent and he scheduled a showing

for 6 pm.

I received another sign call to show the property last night on my way over to

my clients to present the offer the first buyer wrote.

I haven't seen this pace of activity on a listing in quite some time here in the

Grand Rapids market.

So my new listing is pending after being on the market less than a day.

This is what can happen when homes are prepared for sale correctly and

priced correctly.

Congratulations to my now homeless sellers, time to find them a

new place to live.

Great Job Terry! Things do appear to be getting better here also!! I think it also has something to do with the weather here!! Many more people seem to be looking!

Terry--Some uninformed people would think you "underpriced" the home when really what you did was "properly prepare the home and price it right". You proved to your sellers that homes are selling when priced and prepared properly. Good for you and congrats to your "happily homeless" clients!

Teri: We had quite a conversation during the listing and for quite a while before on the preparation. You're right they were glad to have a quick sale but the thoughts of under pricing do come up. In this case we had the right buyer and the well prepared home come together quickly.

Congrats Terry! We are seeing the same kind of activity here. It sure does feel great!
