This home is a Holly floor plan, one of the more popular homes in Avery Ranch. 

Back in June we listed this home for sale. At the same time a real estate agent from the traditional broker in the neighborhood listed another Holly floor plan.

Both homes have 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ baths and a game room. The major differences were the home we sold had carpet downstairs and bland builder grade kitchen. The home that was listed with the other agent had more upgrades as it had wood floors, an enclosed office, updated kitchen with quartz countertops, subway tile, and white cabinets, all of which are preferred by most buyers in the area.

How did we sell our listing for $15,250 more?

Congratulations, your home is under contract. The next step will be the buyer scheduling an inspection.

  • The buyer’s agent will let us know when they would like to schedule the inspection.
  • The inspection will take approximately 4 hours. You will want to be away from your home during the inspection.
  • The inspector will need access to the attic, HVAC system, water heater and electrical panels. Please make sure there are no locks, vehicles, etc that will prevent access from those areas.
  • Please make sure the electricity, gas and water are on for the inspection. Per the contract utilities need to be on through the closing date.
  • If there are any remote controls or instructions needed to operate any parts of your home please leave them out

Recently on our neighborhood Facebook group there was an argument over whether or not an open house is an effective way of getting your home sold. Some people were saying the only reason a Realtor holds an open house is to get meet new clients. Some Realtors who live in the neighborhood even said they have never sold a home to someone who visited an open house. This is a great example of just because someone says THEY can’t do it doesn’t mean it cant be done.

The Facts About Open Houses

The fact is 72% of our listings have sold to someone who visited one of our open houses. Just in the last few weeks I have sold all these homes to someone who came to the open house.

One of the neighborhood events I look forward to is the semi-annual Avery Ranch garage sale. This event happens in both the spring and the fall. The Mid Spring 2020 Avery Ranch garage sale will take place on Saturday, April 25th, 2019 from 7AM-3PM.

With almost 4,000 homes in the neighborhood there will be plenty of homes selling items. This is a great opportunity to find clothes, toys, bikes and furniture.

If you are having a garage sale at your home feel free to leave your address and a list of items you are selling in the comment section below.

One piece of advice is to get started early. Cars will be lined up at 7AM and the great items will sell right away.
