I hope you and your family have had a happy and healthy year and I want to wish you an even better 2020.
Thanks to all of my clients for allowing me to be part of your real estate needs in selling 117 homes this past year, ranging in prices for $150,000 to $5.4 million. As most of you know, my team includes me and my amazing assistant of 20 years, Kathy Wright. When you hire me, you get me and, unlike a Realtor team, you are not passed on to agents that you really did not hire and are not very experienced in our area.
I am seeing some of my clients downsizing and either moving to smaller homes or moving to one of our amazing Independent living /assisted living facilities such as The Beatitudes, Orangewood Terraces or La Siena. If you are concerned about your timing to sell your home so you can move there, please give me a call and I will make your life easier. I have one current client who is moving into one of the facilities mentioned above in 2020 and did not want to sell their home now and be forced to move twice (selling their home and then moving into a rental before their new residence was ready). My suggestion to them was to list the home in November instead of January, have a buyer purchase the home now, close escrow in 30-45 days and then allow the sellers to lease for 60 days until their home was ready.
This scenario allowed my clients to have their home sold now, giving them peace of mind and money in the bank. Due to the current short ages of quality inventory of homes in our area, we sold the home in five days with four offers and all of them were going to allow the home to close quickly and then have the seller lease back for two months. I have been a realtor for almost 30 years and I will find a creative way to sell your home NOW so you can move forward with peace of mind that your home is sold and relieve you of one more stressful scenarios. Some of these facilities will recommend a relocation service to help you sell your home, which in my opinion is a waste of money and a waste of time. They will recommend a realtor who pays the relocation company a big referral fee to be recommended to you but 90 percent of the time the agents they refer you to do not even know where North Central or the Biltmore is located, which is what happened to the home that I just sold.
North Central has been my specialty for more than 25 years and I have sold more than 3,500 homes in that time frame. I know all the areas here and many of the residents since I have lived in our ‘hood for more than 40 years. Please give me opportunity to either sell your home, help you buy a home or help you with both situations. I always answer my phone or If I am on the phone, I will quickly call you back.
