The Perfect Sellers/ Mexico Beach Florida

In a market where the average days on the market is 271 days-----I have just had the pleasure of listing and selling a house that sat on the market a whopping 2 weeks before getting an offer of 96% of its list price.       This house was in a rural area, 30 minutes from the beach where very few houses are selling at all!  This young man (and his very smart girlfriend!) bought while the market was in decline.  It continued to decline since they bought it but........they sold for a profit!!!!! Not a lot of profit but....   They sold for a profit in a market where the majority of sellers in their situation lost lots of money!!!!

Why, you ask, did this house sell and sell quickly?   Because the sellers did everything right!!!
They got rid of all clutter---and yes they were still living there full time!  
They got rid of furniture that didn't fit and put in furniture that did.
The house was immaculate all the time.
They kept the house in tip top condition.
The garage was cleaned out as well.
THEY PRICED IT RIGHT!   They priced it at a point where we knew it would get interest.
They had the house ready to show at a moments notice.
They took the pets out with them when it was to be shown.
THEY WORKED WITH THE FIRST OFFER THAT CAME IN AND MADE IT WORK!

This young couple will be successful in life and I wish them all the very best!!!
Thanks Justin and Kimberly for being the perfect sellers!!!

While things have certainly slowed down here at the beach, properties are still being shown and offers being made!
Below are the properties that went under contract in the last week.
Click here!

I just sold a house, primary home, 100% financing for 3.75%!   Holy Cow, 3.75%!!!!
Makes me want to borrow money!!!!

Below is an unusual property.   Its actually 2 houses on one lot.   Now, this is a good thing and a bad thing-----Good, because you can use one house for yourself while you rent out the other, bad because financing is extremely difficult on such a property.   Cash is probably the best way to do on this one!
Both houses are nice though!!!     Call me for more information!   850-896-5222

A few more things to think about........continued from last week!!!

6·  Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

7·  Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

8·  Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.

9·  All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

10·  In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

11·  How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

12·  Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, 'I think I'll squeeze these dangly things and drink whatever comes out'?

13·  If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

14·  Why does your OB-GYN leave the room when you get undressed if they are going to look up there anyway?

15·  If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?
