As a full service broker, I provided cleaning, staging and photography for this client and the home sold for $75,000 over the list price. Great staging and fantastic photography get people into a home. My philosophy is that you only need two motivated buyers in this market. Those two buyers can move the price way up! Getting a lot of people into an open house will really motivate those two buyers to push their limit. This home had 70 broker viewings and received five offers.
On other occasions, I have completed a moderate remodel on the property before the property is listed, again at no additional charge. It pays to work with a full service broker!
