Good Preparation = Amazing Price!

This nice house is a good example of proper preparation. 3684 S Arno Ave., Meridian, ID was comfortably lived in3684 S Arno Ave_Interior_8 and was quite full. The owners de-cluttered it over a couple of months; we had my cleaning crew come in for a deep cleaning; the following day, my stager did her magic and on the 3rd day my photographer/videographer and I shot the marketing VIDEO. We then launched the VIDEO on YouTube. See for yourself how nice it turned out.

In  4 days we had 5 offers and we closed the sale in 25 days for $62,250 MORE than the asking price! The Sellers didn’t need to be away for an Open House and in less than a week no addition visitors had to be handled.

Yes, we are in a “Seller’s Market” and this property would have sold anyway. However, the owners received much more for their house than they expected and were able to relax again after the first few days of being on the market.

After watching their VIDEO, can you visualize your home being marketed in this way? Just imagine what your new housing opportunities could be.

Feel free to text, email or call me. I’ll be happy to help you directly or provide you with an outstanding agent referral if you are outside of the Treasure Valley, Idaho.


Just Sold in Tuscany

While we’re all adjusting to our current circumstances homes are still selling.  3867 S Leanato

3867 S Leanato in Meridian, ID, for example recently closed after only 3 days on the market!  This nice 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2,974 sq. ft. home sold for $460,000!  And, typical to the Tuscany subdivision, this home sits on a 11,935 sq. ft. lot. Thanks Jeanette Kurtz for a nice listing.

With “shelter in place” being enforced buyers are more inclined to stay home. Therefore, getting your home’s virtues in front of prospective buyers is more of a challenge. We see yard sign flyers staying in the box longer and most agents only rely on their listing information in the MLS. And, almost none produce true VIDEO tours for their listings.

I have created over 30 agent guided VIDEO Tours in recent years.  I have included Aerial Video in these VIDEOS for the last half of them. I launch the VIDEO on YouTube so the owner’s home is showcased all over the world, literally. And, since Google owns YouTube and, since they love VIDEO marketing my listings typically appear near the top of dozens of sites. These VIDEOs put star power on the home and draws prospective buyers to them. I’ve learned, over the years that VIDEO presentations are just like walking through the home. You can’t ‘Photoshop’ VIDEOs like you can still photos and virtual tours.

Since prospective buyers are home a lot more they tend to shop on line more now. This is a ‘perfect storm’ to capture them and drive them to YOUR home.

If you are thinking of selling your home text, email or call me. In a short visit I’ll be happy to walk through your home and give you pointers to help you get your home show ready. In the mean time I invite you to watch my VIDEOS in my YouTube Channel: “YourHome411”.

9949 W Whirlaway, Boise

Here is a nice home in a great neighborhood.  Watch this VIDEO/Aerial Tour. It’s just like walking through the house.

It was just painted inside and out, has nice looking and easily cleaned manufactured wood flooring. With 2 skylights, a wood burning fireplace, and ample windows throughout this home your energy bills will be very low.

Much of the 9,100 sq. ft. lot is in the back and the few neighbors also have large, tree studded backyards.  There is plenty of room for your ‘white board’ plans to become a reality. There is a good size shed, grow boxes, sitting areas and a large, covered patio. Just right for family and friends to gather for barbecues and activities.

The seller has priced 9949 W Whirlaway such that the home should sell quickly. I wouldn’t hesitate seeing it for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
