Birch Grove Open House Results

bg-long-grassy-yard-560-sold
What happened at your last Grand Opening Open House? Well, I’m glad you asked. In September we held our Grand Opening at Birch Grove in Terra Vista, another Taco Edition. If you have followed our recent sales you could probably predict the results – sold in 4 hours for thousands over recent comps. The open house was seen by almost 300 guests and 17 offers were received.

In case you missed the open house here is a video that we had a professional movie company shoot at the event.

The flash mob was planned although many people from the crowd joined in spontaneously. The amount of people who came to the open house was typical (you would know that if I sold your house) and a result of the outside-of-the-box marketing we do on each and every listing. We are going to be using this video as part of the Yesin7days training we will be teaching to other agents beginning next year.

Who do you know that’s getting ready to buy or sell? Would you like to be their hero and save them from waiting on the same old traditional agent marketing? Would they love to have their home sold quickly for more than the asking price? Send them this blog post and tell them to call Jenean right away. It’s always nice to share good things with friends. Here’s Jenean’s number (949) 583-1331.

Feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be looking to buy or sell a home anytime soon.

Walk-in closet in one master and a wall of closets in the other. Full-size inside laundry room with storage leads to freshly-painted direct access garage with epoxy floors, storage and new water heater. Each bedroom has its own linen closet so it is great for roommates.

This condo looks like a model and will sell right after its big FREE taco bar Sat lunch!  Call me or ask your agent for info.

Jenean Says: Arrive early at 11:45am and enjoy the live catered taco bar ‘while supplies last’. There will be a line at the door, embrace it, you’ll want my same over-the-top effort when I sell your home.

A Tale of Two Sonoita’s (or Traditional Agent vs Jenean Hill)

Sonoita-II-Front-sold

David here to report on the recently sold 23046 Sonoita property (the ‘Taco Edition’ Grand Opening Open House). We opened the property to the pubic on the same day as another property opened just 4 doors down the street. Both homes back to a very busy street and present a challenge to market and sell. What a great opportunity to show the power of Jenean’s marketing and selling of homes versus traditional agents. (I was going to mention that the other agent was out-of-area but then I realized that Jenean sells out-of-area all the time, using the same system to quickly sell homes anywhere.)

Here’s what happened so far:

Both homes opened on the same day. The other agent did the traditional marketing, put a sign in the yard and put the home on the MLS. Jenean spent the entire month in advance of the open house to market the property and get it ready for the public. When she opened the doors for the Grand Opening Open House, it resulted in almost 200 guests and created a sense of excitement for the guests, and the neighborhood. Guests were served tacos and listened to salsa music while they enjoyed the atmosphere and explored the home. While the other home got the benefit of Jenean’s marketing, with a few curious spillover visitors, they failed generate many visitors of their own.

In about one week, a guest who visited the open house wrote an offer above the asking price and went into escrow.

The other home…well, it’s still on the market and will probably be there for a while. At some point they will likely lower the price to try and entice someone to make an offer. If it’s on the market for the average time, that will be in about 3-6 months. (I’m sensing a huge advantage for Jenean’s system here.)

Who do you know that’s getting ready to buy or sell? Would you like to be their hero and save them from waiting on the same old traditional agent marketing? Would they love to have their home sold quickly for more than the asking price? Send them this blog post and tell them to call Jenean right away. It’s always nice to share good things with friends. Here’s Jenean’s number (949) 583-1331.
