Settlement Success in Castor Gardens
We had a settlement yesterday that was a culmination of a lot of hard work, communication and patience.Â We originally listed this property in Castor Gardens in November 2007 and had the settlement in January 2009.Â That is a long time !Â There are a few very important items to take away from this.
The property was one of few mixed used properties in the neighborhood and not the easiest to price or to appraise.Â The sellers expectations were too high in the beginning but not too far off.Â It took a couple of price reductions and the seller rejecting a deal before the first deal was accepted.Â One deal blew up after the buyer could not obtain financing which 4 months were lost and then finally the last deal went through.
Every step of the way we communicated with our seller, got the necessary extensions and navigated through the process.Â Without this, I am sure the seller would have relisted with another realtor.Â Â We never gave up and were determined to have the goal achieved.Â Â Further, with the trickiness of the market and the property, without our knowledge in terms of knowing the market and the sales, the last deal probably would not have gone through.
The big picture is what our market is providing is for the opportuntity for the energetic and experienced agents to gain market share as customers really need this expertise more than ever.Â Further, those agents that specialize in internet marketing for theirÂ sellers will be that much more in demand as well in 2009 and the years to come !
