Hi Everyone,What's going on in the real estate market as of September
"…our house had multiple offers and sold in one day…
Valentine Home Sales Team helped us sell our old home and buy new. Considering this will likely be one of the most expensive transactions in your life and the high emotional stakes, it is imperative that you have someone on your side that knows what they're doing and you can trust. My wife and I consider ourselves very fortunate to have worked with Shelly. During the sale they provided excellent advise on various actions to take prior to listing our home to increase the overall appeal and avoid inspection issues. We followed their advice and our house had multiple offers and sold in one day for a fair price that ended up within 2% of where she originally estimated it would and our sale went very smooth. When selecting our new home, they were thorough in finding out what features we valued and used this information to show us homes that were inline with our wishes. Shelly has a good eye for details and would candidly point out features/issues with the homes we may not have considered. We ended up with a home that exceeded our expectations and Shelly did a great job negotiating on our behalf to get us a good price and concessions for inspection items. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Valentine Real Estate to anybody looking to buy or sell a home.
