We made it. Phew. Like many of us, the owners of this awesome 1901 Mt. Tabor farmhouse were not able to sell their home for the price that worked for them in 2008-2009. After 263 days on the market, they chose to rent rather than sell.
After the tenants vacated the property, the owners contacted us. They wanted fresh eyes and input on their situation. We met with the owners and decided the time was right for their needs to re-list the farmhouse, even though it was just before Christmas. We staged the home beautifully, produced captivating print materials and website, and pushed it out into the world. We put the farmhouse on the market knowing that there may be fewer buyers, but anybody looking days before Christmas would be serious. Within 3 days of listing the home we had a solid offer, and closed January 18.
The real estate market is back with pizazz, especially in the inner Portland neighborhoods like Mt. Tabor. Good homes staged to enhance their best features and spaces, presented with beauty, and priced wisely sell. There are ample buyers ready to take advantage of the low interest rates, but struggling to find their next home because of the inventory shortage.
If you are wondering if the timing is right for you to sell your home, give me a call today.
