Pre-Market Sale at Rhodes Hill Square: Seller Saves Time and Money
The Orange Line Living team recently sold a 2BR condo at Rhodes Hill Square in Courthouse without going on the market. What made the sale even more remarkable was that the seller got a higher price than the most previous comparable unit and a rent back that allowed them close on the condo and get their money out, but still have a place to stay until their new construction home was complete. All of this happened while a similar condo in the building sat unsold while active on the MLS.
By selling the home prior to going on the market the sellers avoided many of the costs and hassle of completing repairs, staging their home and dealing with Open Houses and showings while managing nap schedules for their children. Putting your home for sale on the MLS requires work to make repairs, declutter, stage and keep the home in top shape. When buyers see homes that are not yet on the MLS expectations are often lower so sellers can save a lot of time not only from doing fewer showings, but from doing much less prep work. What makes this sale so interesting is that our team did it while another similar unit has sat on the market active for months.
Don’t Lose Money
Just because you are forgoing the MLS does not mean you will make less money. In fact, in this case, the Orange Line Living Team netted the sellers more money than previous comparable sales in the building. In order to maximize your chance of getting top dollar for your home, you need to work with an agent or team that has a wide variety and depth of marketing and buyer follow up systems. These systems are too costly to develop for nearly all real estate agents. The Orange Line Living and Keri Shull team, have tens of thousands of buyer prospects in our system due to the size of our marketing budget and customer relations team as well as having the reputation of being the largest team in Arlington for several years now. These systems allow us to find the perfect buyer candidates for your home even if it is not on the market, which in this case allowed the sellers to sell their home with just three showings and still get a great price and the perfect terms.
