Selling privately is a big mistake in this market. There is a strategy to selling in this market and if you choose to sell privately you may be leaving thousands of dollars on the table.  You need to have your home on the open market and you need a realtor to bring as many buyers as possible to your home. You need to get your home exposed to be able to sell for the best price. The Golfi Team has a Listing Strategy second to none. Our strategy involves a number of things but day of week and time of day listed play an important role. Bully Offers are quite common and this can make the deal quite stressful for agents and clients.

We have a story of a bid that came in on a home that was $150,000 less than the highest offer but the bid actually won the offer. The buyers did a lot of mission trips and were downsizing to be able to live more simply so that they could go on more mission trips to help people. They submitted a letter along with their offer explaining their story which moved the home owners who accepted their offer because ‘because its not just about the highest number’. This works really well when there is an emotional attachment to the property
