I recently listed a home in "Historic Ridgewood." It was listed on April 6 and had an offer on April 8.
We don't often get a "quick" sale on our listings but every now and then we get a home that will move fast. What is the difference between this home and other listings I've had?
Four factors come in mind:
Location: This home is located in Historic Ridgewood in Canton, Ohio. There are several different architectural designs in this area that make it unique. The area also has a great history; you can read more about it by following the link below:
Price: The seller understood the importance of pricing a home to sell. We looked at the comps and did an analysis of homes in the area that had recently sold. We also had the benefit of a recent appraisal; however, it was two years old.
Staging: The seller did a great job in staging this home. Everything was perfect and the home had "tons" of appeal.
Preparation: Before we listed this home we did a "walk through" and identified areas that needed to be addressed in order to get the home ready for the market. There was some painting to be done and some minor repairs to be made. The seller made a checklist of all the things he needed to do and followed up by doing the needed work.
We took the view that a home could have a great deal of positive factors that may impress a buyer but it only takes one negative to offset all the good. The seller did a great job of doing the things he needed to do in order to eliminate any "negatives."
