What we learned

Takeaways:

  1. The slope of the back yard can scare buyers from even making an offer on this property.
  2. Pictures make a huge difference whether or not people even find your property worth looking at.  
  3. Your listing agent can make of break you.
  4. Stage odd shaped rooms and houses,; they can save you thousands.

Result:

We ended up sitting on this property for four months.  Eventually, we took it off the market, replaced the front windows, hired a professional photographer, staged the home, hired a fabulous agent, and raised the list price $10K.  Net result, had two full price offers that drove the price up without any closing costs included.  We ended up making twice what we anticipated.
