The storybook Tudor home I had listed in Toluca Lake closed. It had previously been on and off the market for 760 days (more than 2 years) with a variety of agents. When Natalie and I first met the seller, I was concerned that he really enjoyed the excitement of being listed but perhaps didn’t have his heart set on selling.
Either way, once hired, everything sprung into action:
1) As there was a studio over the garage, we had the home taped and a flooorplan developed
2) We sent our home stager to the home and she assisted the seller with sprucing up
3) Once spruced, we sent our real estate photographer
The seller indicated he was anxious to get going so we put up the for sale sign and had a few showings, but waited until after Christmas and New Years to list in the MLS. Once listed we quickly received two offers.
Other than the inspection negotiation, the escrow was smooth sailing. Natalie sold this Toluca Lake home seller a condo in Sherman Oaks and after more than two years he is finally moving!
