Joe and Peggy owned a four bedroom home in the Mockingbird neighborhood of Almaden Valley. After residing in the home for the last thirty years, it was time for change. They wanted to be closer to their son and grandkids in Boise, Idaho.
They met with two agents to discuss the sale. Although one of the agents impressed them, they were turned off after the agent explained that her 6% commission was not negotiable. Joe had prior experience in marketing and was savvy in real estate. He knew that most buyer's would find the home online and that the job of an agent marketing a home has become much easier. Because of this, he didn't see the value in paying such high commissions.
After seeing an ad on Facebook, Peggy decided to inquire with us online. Joe and Peggy met with their SoldNest agent, and were impressed by what they would get and how much they would save. They decided to list their home with him, but were a bit overwhelmed about the life change that was about to happen. Their SoldNest agent helped relieve some of their stress by always being available and guiding them through the process every step of the way.
After putting their home on the market, Joe and Peggy received 4 offers in 4 days. The final selling price was $100,000 over their asking price and broke a record for the highest price per square foot in their neighborhood. In total, they saved $33,000 in commissions and used some of that money towards upgrades for their new home.
