My clients James and Michelle are a young couple with three children – ages 5, 3 and 1. They came to me after another Realtor failed to sell their modest 2 bedroom 1 bath first home near the Kenwood area. They bought it in the height of the market and knew it might be tough to sell it for what they owed on it, but they were getting desperate. 5 people sharing 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom was just not working. So, we put our marketing to the test and gave it a shot.
Alas, after lots of new marketing, some great photos and dozens of showings, we got an offer – and a good one at that! Hallelujah!
Then the work began with James and Michelle looking for a new, bigger home under the $250,000 range – a tough price point because LOTS of buyers want homes in that range and we are in a competitive market. Finally they found one – a 4 bedroom 3 bath home in north St. Petersburg and we closed on both the home they were selling, and the one they bought today. The best part? The kids have not seen the new house yet – and they have no idea that their new home comes complete with a swimming pool, hot tub and a BIG slide! I wish I could see the look on their faces when they see it for the first time! What great summertime fun to come! Congrats James and Michelle – clients like you are why we do what we do.
