This Sharpsburg sale supports the Predictive Analytics that we use to assist in the marketing of our listings. We sent out our Just Listed postcards to those homes within a three-mile radius of the home that were valued at within 65% to 85% of our asking price and had been occupied by its current owner for more than 5 years. We feature the house on our website and supported it with Facebook advertising to our Custom Audience. The house sold in two weeks. The buyer lived within 3 miles, were in their 40’s, had one child and sold their house in three weeks of making their offer on Sharpsburg.
There are three reasons why homes sell quickly.
Location – There is a nationwide move in metropolitan areas towards the city or villages located near the city.
Price – The asking price must be in line with what other homes in your area have sold for, the best way to determine this is to compare your price per square foot compared to other comparable homes in your area that have sold recently.
Condition – Today buyers don’t want to have to rehab their new home, particularly if they are moving in from out of town. They don’t know contractors and don’t want to go through the hassle of overseeing construction after a move. It’s important to have you home up-to-date with the best workmanship.
Awareness – In the luxury home market there are more sellers than there are buyers, so it’s important that you make any potential buyers and their agents aware of your home… that means marketing. A sign in the front yard just doesn’t get the job done anymore, you must assume that your eventual buyer isn’t currently looking for a home and you must bring your home to their attention.
