This gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2 bath, single story home was in a prime location and in pristine condition which attracted buyers from all over the area. We accepted an offer just a week after going on the market then closed 17 days later.
Secrets to Selling a Home Over Asking Price in This Market
The Gamache Team is no stranger to selling homes in a stressed market. With over 50 years of real estate experience between my grandfather, father, and myself, we have seen the market shift overnight.
Our steadfast approach to real estate has never wavered; we begin with a consultation with our clients; prep the home to attract the most buyers by staging it, taking professional pictures, and marketing it for the most exposure; price it to sell; go over all offers with our clients, guiding them to the best offer, which isn’t necessarily the highest offer but can be; and do our due diligence in making sure all timelines are met, all contingencies are removed; deposits are made; inspections are monitored and completed; communication with the buyers’ agent is constant, and all steps of the process are communicated with our client.
When inventory is low and buyers are hungry for the right home, they are often eager to offer more than the asking price to secure the home of their dreams. The Gamache Team are strong and experienced negotiators who always have the best interest of our sellers at heart.
We look for solid buyers who are pre-qualified, who have money in the bank for the deposit, who have a lender willing to loan the money or have an all cash offer, and who have shown earnest interest in buying our seller’s home.
When all factors line up, or all our ducks are in a row as the saying goes, we are left with a smooth and seamless transaction that makes the sellers and buyers equally happy.
