My son went to middle school with their son, we'd run into each other on the slopes, but we'd met decades earlier when I'd listed a neighbors house. English voices have a tendency to be heard and that was really how we all met. They asked Daria and I to come look at their latest project and give a price opinion. We asked them to stage the house and then said we wanted to list at slightly less than the market indicated full value would be. In this crazy, and particularly fast moving neighborhood we knew how to maximize. We published on Friday evening, held an open house on Sunday afternoon and by Sunday evening we had 5 offers, all over the initial asking price of $675,000. An investment in staging, paint and yard cleanup had paid out well!
