As a professional couple, the Whiting's lived in a great home, in a nice neighborhood, in Ballard.
They realized it wasn't their forever home and had a bigger dream home in mind. It was time for a new lifestyle that better suited them.
We spoke with them and helped them see the opportunity in the market.
Recognizing the low inventory & high demand market, even during COVID, they made the decision to put their home on the market now. Because they knew they could get a great result, given the current conditions.
In a fast-paced, competitive market like Seattle, they knew they had to be ready to buy the moment they found their dream home.
To take advantage of the opportunity, they decided to sell now and rent while they waited. This way they wouldn't have to worry about selling and so that they would be ready when they found "the one".
They moved out and rented an Airbnb. This way, we could help prepare their home, stage it, and market it.
Moving out early also provided an additional benefit during COVID. Potential viewers wouldn't have to worry about anything when going to see a vacant home.
As a result, they were able to receive an above-list price offer in 6 days at $865,000.
Now with the cash proceeds in the bank, they're ready to pounce on their dream home opportunity!
