There were three closings on my clients’ homes last week. I’ve been busy! See all three below, with a short description of the processes:
Sometimes it just takes finding the right buyer for the home! I listed this home after the sellers already had moved to their new location. In a crazy market, people still want flat lots or houses with no work to be done. The market spoke, and the original listing ended up at $2,050,000. It was situated on an upslope with no flat yard and a retaining wall that needed work, along with deck repairs. Once the price was lowered, interest increased and an offer came.
This was a great listing within walking distance to downtown Martinez. It’s a newer Mediterranean “green” townhome. It was great to work with an agent I had worked with in the past.
I represented a first-time home buyer, who decided to cancel when the sellers wouldn’t give the full credit he requested, then kind of regretted his decision. I had called the listing agent saying if the new buyers couldn’t perform, that my buyer was interested in getting back into contract. He ended up getting the full credit via a price reduction once the sellers took away the one-year home warranty. Sometimes it takes out-of-the-box thinking to make things work.
