This Seller Took Our Advice

Frances M. found our ad in the Yellow Book and called us up.  She and her sister needed to sell a vacant, old family home that no one needed, located in Landrum, SC.

After asking Frances a few questions  about the property, we set up a time to go out and see it.  After walking through the house, we quickly concluded that it was not a good fit for what we needed.  We were not able to make an offer to the seller.

As we  listened to Frances and her sister discuss their financial needs, we suggested a selling plan.  We encouraged them to place an ad in the local  Landrum weekly.  We gave them the text for the ad, explained who would most likely buy it, and what price they needed to set in order to sell it quickly.

Several weeks later I received a voicemail message from Frances with the following good news:

I just wanted to call you and tell you that we took your advice.  We placed an ad in our local paper here in Landrum.  We listed our house as a “handyman special” for the price you recommended.  The first person who called us came out to see it and ended up buying the house.  Thanks for your suggestion!

The good news continues.  It turns out that the buyer for the house bought it with the intention of providing housing for a homeless family until  they can get back on their feet.

We feel grateful to have been part of this process of one good deed begetting another!
