I'm sure you may be wondering what happened to our distressed seller at Wade Plantation in Martinez GA.
After putting out the blog and entering this home in the MLS, the interest was incredible. Buyers and agents came out of the woodwork - many new inquiries and some buyers that we had not heard from in many months. After sending out about 300 e-mails as well as bulletins in the MLS and other marketing methods, we ended up with three solid written offers at the end of the first day on the market and 2 verbal offers. Many more buyers who had not acted quickly were remorseful that they had not jumped on this opportunity to have instant equity in a great neighborhood.
In the end, the winning offer was well above the list price. This is a good example of an experienced agent guiding their client to get what they wanted, many thanks to Rick Frerichs!
Adding unnecessary contingencies, delayed inspections , missing pre-approval letters causes buyers to miss out on the super deals. Also the ones that had to think about it for a day or two or three totally missed the boat. It's all about getting the real deal, getting it quick and not playing a game.
Everyone is looking for a bargain, however the smart buyer does not care about the "list price", only the value and equity in the property.
We wish to thank all of of you for spreading the word and turning this into a "win-win" situation where the buyer gets a GREAT deal - while helping the seller move on with their life with one thing less to worry about, avoiding a foreclosure, and have a new beginning that she so desperately deserves.
We'll keep you posted as the closing has not taken place yet and it's not over till it's over. The inspection is done, the loan process is going well, so we expect everything will fall in place.
