In today’s extremely competitive home-buying market there are more multiple offer situations than ever before. The result of this is creating a buzz around properties that are new on the market and pushing up prices far above their list-price. From the moment that this property hit the market, the buzz around it was astounding. Between the brokers open and the first open house there were dozens of parties through the property. After just five short days on the market there were three offers presented to the seller, all of which were competing with each other on terms and price.The end result? Reaching mutual acceptance at a price more than $250,000 above the original list price or 20.78% over asking, releasing $100,000 if non-refundable earnest money, allowing the seller to rent back for 1.5 months free, and closing escrow in under 3 weeks!

Due to the extensive amount of pre-market attention that went into listing this property, whether it was touching up the landscaping, pressure washing, staging or even painting a few of the walls, Joseph was able to transform this home into the most stunning property on the block and capture the perfect buyer for his client. Moments after the listing went live, Joseph’s phone was blowing up with calls from agents wanting to view the property with their clients. This frenzy of buyers lasted for 48 hours straight when an agent submitted an offer that got the owner’s full attention. In today’s crazy market a buyer has to make a statement when submitting an offer, especially when submitting an offer before the seller’s intended offer review date in hopes that the seller will accept and cancel the weekend open houses and eliminate other buyers from out-bidding their offer. At nearly $100,000 over the original list price, non-refundable earnest money and closing escrow in just 7 days, this buyer’s offer definitely made a statement. In 10 days from start to finish, Joseph helped his clients list, sell and successfully close escrow.
