Under contract in 3 days!

If you will recall my recent post,“New listing in Pinecrest,”  I just listed a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath home in Pinecrest last week. After 5 showings and 3 days on the market we had a signed contract in hand. It’s a wonderful house in a great location that I know will be the perfect home for it’s soon-to-be, new owners. This is just another indicator that the key to selling homes in this market is pricing. When you price a home at a higher price than the market can support chances are it will just remain stagnant on the market. Pricing a home realistically will help everyone save time, money and patience, in the end. If you are thinking of selling your home and would like to speak to me regarding the market, I would be […]
