It’s All About The Buyer

Posted by: Rick Pariani in Tips
 

With the patience, persistence and professionalism of my Real Estate Agent*, we successfully closed the sale of our home on 7/21/17.

We were on the market for about 140 days. But for my slow acceptance of buyer preferences and market facts – it could have been much quicker. After all, the house across the street from us had three offers the first day it was on the market – and it’s sale closed rapidly.

Wanted In White – Clean Not Cluttered

Posted by: Rick Pariani in Tips
 

In my last installment, as a current home seller, I shared a personal lesson-learned. I summarized the lesson into the simple observation – “listen to the market – don’t doubt the Buyer – understand their preferences”.

The longer one’s home remains on the market – the more lessons flood in. You don’t always have to personally live the lesson to benefit from it. When you seek the right counsel – your path and progress can be secured.

Popcorn Personality

Posted by: Rick Pariani in Tips
 

If you have been following along with this Series, you know that in our last article, “Like an Athlete in Training – Picture This”, I shared ideas on how to personalize the show and sale of your home.

I suggested that you don’t have to “stage” your home for sale as if it is a model home. I recommended that you showcase your home’s personality and portray it as a “happy home” enjoyed by family and friends. I thought I had evidence of the wisdom of that approach when we got feedback from a buyer who said “we can see ourselves living here”.

Well – Life is about Learning and Learning is Life.

More and more homeowners would like to rent out their home but need more flexibility, and others like the option to stay in their home while it’s not being rented. If this describes you, it is a great time to consider a short-term lease.
