About a year ago the Seller reached out to Josh Parker, the team leader for Profusion Property Group, a Keller Williams Realty team, and found out that at that time, they'd be hard pressed to "break even" on the property. The home needed some repairs, some updating, and some general cleanup.
Josh and his team advised the Seller about different strategies to tackle those items, which ranged from handyman services, to do-it-yourself repairs, to even a possible cash sale to a buyer who would make those repairs themselves after an as-is sale. After the consultation & now armed with this information, Mr. LeCouris made the simple choice and elected to tackle the repairs himself.
Repainting the exterior, patching a few small holes on the interior & repainting the walls, replacing the carpet, a thorough cleaning, a new pool pump, and a few other odds & ends to make the property it's best version of itself. After a couple months of watching the market improve, and while completing those projects as funds & time allowed, they were ready to approach the market again this past Spring.
Based on the recommendation of their Agent, they strategically placed the property on the market at the end of April to work on capturing the always booming Summer buyers. Typically, the market will spike around the end of Spring and throughout the Summer months because many families are looking to relocate during the time in which their children are off for the Summer months and then all can be settled by the time school starts again.
The strategy was a success! After just 5 days on the market, a rockin' Open House, and multiple offers, the Seller was able to fetch over 105% of their asking price & got top dollar for their property! This allowed the homeowner to not only 'break-even', but also to payoff some other personal items, as well as pocket some extra coin - talk about a Win-Win!
As the saying goes, you truly do get what you pay for. It's always best to consult with a local real estate professional, get pricing strategies, repair recommendations, staging ideas, and marketing concepts squared away with them in order to get the most money for your Tarpon Springs house in the least amount of time!
