The stakes were high for Daniel and Heidi. They had just accepted a new job in Atlanta. They needed to sell their home quickly and for enough money to buy their new home in a much pricier real estate market. Our marketing strategy began with doing impactful improvements to boost their home’s curb appeal.
Andy gave us a punch list of things that we could do to try to spruce up the house, to get that first impression, that wow factor. - Daniel
With those improvements made, the house shined in the listing photos and in the 3d virtual tour. The buyer response was immediate.
We put the house on the market and had multiple, multiple showings the very next day. By the end of the next day we had three competing offers. [We] went into a bidding war. We settled on a contract that was well over what we had as the asking price. - Daniel
With the house officially pending, repair negotiations began. It became clear almost immediately that the buyers' expected the Hicks to do more than what was reasonable. They demanded a brand new roof, a french drain bordering the entire home, and more - all to address minor issues.
Unable to come to an understanding, teammate Andy Bond began the process of terminating the contract. As he usually does, Andy had aggressively pursued backup offers to secure the seller's position. When the existing contract was terminated, he activated one of the backup offers and got the house under contract again in less than 24 hours.
With the new set of buyers, the Hicks happily agreed to appropriate repairs - a win, win for both parties.
We’ve been kind of laughing at how easy this has been. The Jim Lea Team and Andy worked hard to make this a beautiful transition for us. - Daniel
