No Showings in 350 Days!

Imagine that you have a brick ranch, set on a large lot with a beautiful backyard in Greenville, SC, located close to the major hospital area.  You inherit this house that needs rehab and updating, but don’t have the time or money to so.  You list the house with a realtor in “as is” condition and don’t have a single showing in over 350 days!

You would probably feel as discouraged and frustrated as Charles did when he contacted us.  As the executor of his aunt’s estate, he needed to sell her house.  Every week he drove over and mowed the grass in the summer.  Every week he returned to the house to check on the inside.  Meanwhile he continued to pay the power and gas bills, and the yearly property taxes.

We met with Charles and saw the house.  After estimating our rehab/finance costs, we made our best offer to Charles.  He turned down our offer and we were not able at that time to come up with a number that worked for both of us.  However the story continues.

Over the next few weeks, we kept in touch with Charles by phone, at his suggestion.  Eventually, after consulting with his attorney, he decided to reconsider our offer.  We, in turn, offered to pay all of his closing costs.  By doing so, Charles was able to net the amount that worked for him.

Charles was relieved to sell the house, end his maintenance chores there, and put some cash in his pocket.

We, in turn, were gratified to hear how he appreciated the professional way we worked with him, and guided him along in the entire process of selling his house.
