After meeting at a university in Cleveland and later getting married, Julie and Perry purchased their first home in Cleveland. They adored this light brick ranch style home but had to sell it not long after as career changes took them to Boston and then Jacksonville. Years later, their love for Cleveland got them to look into moving back. After searching online for top realtors in Northeast Ohio, they discovered The Young Team.
Our first step in assisting the couple was not to immediately begin touring homes. In fact, the couple needed to virtually work with us because they still lived in Jacksonville. However, even if they were in town, as with all my clients, our first step is to understand the buyer’s expectations and needs. The second step is educating buyers about the state of the market and the home buying process in Cleveland. After learning about their desire to find another white brick ranch style, we discussed how much they could afford. Due to it being a seller’s market, we advised them on the importance of creating an offer that would stand out.
Now armored up with Cleveland buyer insight and expectations, they were ready for the home search, virtually from Jacksonville. They ended up falling in love with a light brick ranch style house early in their home search and made an offer they were comfortable with – but that would get the seller’s attention before the competition increased on the home. The strategy worked. Had Julie and Perry not made the offer that they did, this house would have surely been in a multiple offer situation with many interested buyers. The reason they were able to purchase a home so quickly is that they we prepared them ahead of time with a strategy for the right offer to make.
After the sale, we were honored to receive the following review from Julie:
“We purchased a home from out of state and Dustin helped us navigate the cutthroat seller’s market we are currently in and gave us the competitive edge we needed to quickly find the perfect home for us! Highly recommend!”
We couldn’t be happier to have helped this great couple find their dream home, even from afar.
