This charming bungalow on a hilltop lot in Lake Claire / Candler Park Â received its first offer after onlyÂ 18 hoursÂ on the market!
The buyers were so excited about this home, they actually submitted an offer BEFORE they were able to tour the home. Â This is becoming a common trend in Intown Atlanta real estate, as homes usually receive multiple offers after 24 to 48 hours on the market.
If you are thinking of selling your Atlanta home, taking an extra week or two to perfect your home before it is officially listed in the Atlanta multiple listing system (MLS), can make all the difference. Â
With 2017 Palifox, the seller was ready to list his home immediately, but we took an extra 10 days to complete the following items. Â We wanted to everything we could to make sure that it sold in less than 30 days.
- Hired a staging consultantÂ â€“ even though the home was already beautiful, a true expert helped us rearrange, declutter a bit more and made 2017 Palifox home look spectacular
- Hired a professional cleaning serviceÂ to do a deep cleaning (and add that sparkle)
- Added a â€œComing Soonâ€ signÂ to the front yard
- Promoted the home as â€œComing Soonâ€Â to local agents and potential buyers (online, ads, facebook, emails, etc) about seven days BEFORE it was listed in the multiple listing system
- Emailed a postcard to the neighborhoodÂ to let everyone know the home would be listed soon
- Utilized a 3 month old independentÂ appraisal and also visited our potential competitionÂ (other homes for sale in the Lake Claire / Candler Park area) to ensure that we priced the home perfectly
- Hired a professional photographerÂ to ensure that the home looked its very best online and in the high-quality home brochures
â€¦. then we entered the home into the Atlanta Multiple Listing System (MLS)!
So what was the final sales price for 2017 Palifox Drive?
The home was listed at $425K and sold at $421K (99% of the listing price)
