I am keenly aware of how my role has evolved for our sellers over the last few years. Creating a compelling presentation for our client’s homes has always been important. However, in the market we have had since 2013, extracting value from competing offers is where the real money is made for our clients!
As illustrated in one of our recent articles… “Instead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price it so that demand for the home is maximized. In that way, the seller will not be fighting with a buyer over the price, but instead will have multiple buyers fighting with each other over the house.”
In doing so, the seller attracts the auction effect to their home, allowing a skilled broker to work the process for them, eliminating contingencies and raising prices dramatically. This auction effect puts the seller strongly in the driver’s seat and pushes prices to levels that would not be seen or expected in any other normal selling situation!
Here are some examples of how we have recently helped clients reap the best benefits our market has for their home:
Sharon Miles – 21 Offers – Sold for 18% above the list price!
Rich Heineck and Edi McSorley – 9 Offers – Sold for 14% above the list price!
Brian and Ann Steel – 6 Offers – Sold for 11% above the list price!
David and Melissa Conlee – 9 Offers – Sold for 10% above the list price!
Mike Hemphill – 5 Offers – Sold for 7% above the list price!
Tim and Linda Bunce – 2 Offers – Sold for 5% above the list price!
Veeru Perianan & Suji Lakshminarayanan – 3 Offers – Sold for 4% above the list price!
Tim and Tam Alden – 3 Offers – Sold for 3.5% above the list price!
These are just a few examples of clients we have helped successfully run an auction for their home. As you can imagine, this does not happen by accident. We have a complete system to produce these results. If you would like to find out if we can do this for your home too, please contact us at 425-466-1000 or through the form below.
