Friday Diary of a Charlotte Realtor® - 24NOV17

Friday Diary of a Charlotte Realtor® - 24NOV17

I have no idea where everyone came from but, suddenly on Saturday, our market went CRAZY! Mind you, I'm not complaining in the least but, this does always tend to happen to me when going on vacation and during holiday seasons! 

 

I listed a hot new property in Dilworth with probably 2 dozen showings scheduled before leaving for my 'builder open' on Saturday and Offers were already coming in! It was quite joyful for my seller and coincidentally, having something else going on, allowed my seller time to wake up on the West coast and then spend late afternoon here on the East coast reviewing all of the Offers.

 

 

The 'Meet the Builder' event was a MEGA success! Two local sellers came through who are thinking of selling in the spring and lots of renovation ideas came from the home that had been beautifully renovated (where we held the open house). We had a couple of our clients and a referral from another client who also wanted to meet the builder and set a time to review what needs to be done in today's market to get top dollar to sell their homes.

 

The actual buyers were the first to arrive and the last to leave this event! They have several personal things that they want to do to the home that they wanted to chat with the builder about. They also had their fence companies come through for measuring and quotes and as it happened, a large number of residents within the community came by as well. So, the new buyers got the opportunity to meet their new neighbors. At the end of the event, buyer, seller and builder were all smiles!

 

Meet the builder 

Back to negotiating multiple Offers on my Dilworth listing. After reviewing the Offers, the seller accepted, what she called, "the perfect Offer" and all other buyer agents were informed. The following day, we had a bidding war for the back-up position - an elated seller, to say the least!

 

I was notified on Saturday that one of my SouthPark luxury property sellers was about to receive an Offer. The agent sent an email with all of the Offer terms, to which my seller client said, "Write it up!" I notified several other buyers who had been through (one had an agent, the rest were Open House visitors) that we didn't have an Offer in-hand just yet but, if interested, we needed to get their Offer in the mix ASAP. 

 

By Sunday, we had 3 solid Offers - one was accepted and we are now also under Contract with a private sale, facilitated because of our Open Houses, in the same neighborhood!  Happy buyers, happy sellers all around!

 

Wednesday was spent doing a few pop-bys and I was able to see one of my California sellers who got her home under Contract over the weekend. I love day-before-a-holiday pop-bys - everyone is in the best of spirits and I always arrive home with a smile on my face and a spring in my step!

 

 


 

 

Thanksgiving was wonderful - we had lunch with the small number of family that was left in Charlotte for the holiday. It wasn't our normal holiday gathering of 17+ but, we did have a great time. After lunch, I got 3 Christmas trees and my mantle decorated. Today, I didn't have a lot of time to get much else done but, attend an inspection and do a few showings this afternoon/evening with a relocation buyer.

I plan to wrap-up my decorating tomorrow after showings with a local seller/buyer tomorrow.

 


  

Thought for the week...

During this delightful month of focus on thankfulness & gratitude, this quote comes to mind. If only we would all apply this to each and every aspect of our lives, the world would be a better place. 

 

Thankfulness & sharing

 

Have a great week ahead everyone!
