The sellers found me on the internet and told me that they needed to move to New York for a job promotion as quickly as possible. They paid $775,000 for their home in December 2010 and completed an extensive renovation and expansion of over 700 sq. ft. of living space over time. Their original intention had been to live in the house for many years and I could tell that this was not a flip job from the high quality finishes they chose. We discussed what we needed to do to maximize their value and they followed my advice. I placed small signs around the house (examples: “Appliance Garage”, “Two Nest Controlled Furnaces”) to highlight the many hidden features in the home. When it came time to review the eight offers that were submitted, they accepted a cash offer that allowed them to stay for a short time after close of escrow, enough to find a new abode in the New York area. As I write this, the wife and baby just boarded a plane to New York and the husband, his father and the 12 year old dog are starting a cross country drive to their new home!
