Speedy Turn~Around Strikes Again!

Who says your home has to languish on the market for months, while you postpone your life waiting for your real estate decisions to finalize?  This may be the scenario for some, but if you list your property with Greg Rapp, the potential to move your property quickly increases exponentially!

A lone sign in front of your property will not sell your house.  A lone photo on a multiple listing service will not sell your house.  A Realtor who already has communication lines open with a variety of potential buyers sells your house.  A Realtor who uses a broad range of marketing tools sells your house.  A Realtor who understands the fluctuations of the housing market, and can help you price your home TO SELL, sells your house.

Greg Rapp listed the great single story brick home at 835 Choat Road, Salisbury NC, that sits on more than an acre of property, on Tuesday October 23rd.  The home is in a country setting, with vistas of open fields in every direction, yet minutes from the Interstate Highway and the conveniences of the City of Salisbury.  This maintenance-free home, with brick and vinyl siding, had been empty for approximately a year and was in need of a little TLC, but nothing a cleaning and landscaping crew couldn't take care of in a day.  By Saturday, October 27th, Greg had a contract in his hands!  FOUR DAYS ON THE MARKET...not 4 months!

Want Quick Turn~Around? List with Greg Rapp!

Has your Home~For~Sale been languishing on the market for months and months, perhaps over a year, waiting for a buyer . . . the right buyer . . . any buyer?  It doesn't have to be this way, even in this struggling and depressed housing market.  Choosing the right agent, who knows how to price your property to SELL, and who knows how to reach the broadest breadth of interested buyers, is the secret to moving your property!  Just check out this real~time success story:

The owners of 103 Trapper's Ridge Drive in Rockwell, North Carolina were anxious, as many of you are, to sell their property in a timely manner, a beautifully landscaped one-story, brick, 3-bedroom home sitting on a hill up off the road in a charming, quiet neighborhood.  The home features hardwood floors in most rooms, a vaulted ceiling and brick fireplace in living room, arched and bay windows. Trapper's Ridge has a master~suite to die for ~ with 3 closets, one of which is a huge walk in closet, and beautifully appointed master bath with separate shower and tub. The home's formal dining room and separate eat in kitchen area are great for entertaining as is the secluded patio at the rear of the home. The home's superb floor plan, laundry room, and 3~car (yes THREE!!) garage already made this home a choice piece of real estate.  

But how were the owners to get out from under their heavy mortgage payment, and quickly?  

The owners listed 103 Trapper's Ridge Drive with Greg Rapp/Wallace Realty on September 24th.  With Greg's expert advise, they priced the home right at $200,000.  If this sounds low, it might be.  It was priced $50K below tax value . . . but in this case, the owners needed to move on quickly. Letting the house linger on the market was not a palatable option! Pricing at $200K allowed home buyers to find this property in searches that, for instance, allow one to look at properties priced from $150K to $200K...or from $200K to $250K. 

Greg's broad-reaching real-estate marketing tactics allow him a steady stream of interested buyers.  Within days of listing the property, Greg was showing 103 Trapper's Ridge to valid potential buyers.  By October 5th, just 12 days from listing the property, this home was under contract.
