How I Helped My Sellers Earn $30K Over Asking

Most people would agree hiring a real estate agent just because you know them or you are friends can be a step in the wrong direction. However, it doesn’t matter what the relationship is, as long as the agent you hire is credible and equipped to meet your unique home selling needs.

“I have used Josh and the Young Team for four housing transactions. Now I feel like most people have a friend that is a realtor, but buying or selling a house is a very big deal for anyone. You don’t just want to use any realtor with a license,” said Jeremy.

I have known Mo and Jeremy for years. I originally met Mo when I was a kid through horseback riding. Later, I met Jeremy when they got married. Four real estate transactions later, there is a reason Mo and Jermey continue to work with The Young Team! We are credible, fast, and dedicated to helping our clients make the best out of their home sale. But it doesn’t happen without a strategy. I emphasize planning and due diligence upfront to make the time from going under contract to closing smoother and less stressful for the sellers.  


This was extra important for Mo and Jermey because they wanted to sell their home before building their new one that would have more space for their children. Because it is a sellers market, I knew their home would likely get a lot of attention and interested buyers. They ended up receiving 11 offers! I helped the couple navigate and understand the benefits of each offer and how to negotiate the best deal. 


Right now, about one in four deals fall through because the buyer that made the offer is not actually ready. A skilled realtor can help you review the nuances of each offer to help you select the best deal that will make it to the closing table. This home ended up selling for 30K over asking with no inspections in a weekend. While it may seem simple to sell a home in a seller’s market, it takes a savvy realtor with a proven strategy to achieve the highest sale price and best overall negotiation.
