Green Grass Does It Again!31 Jul
Time and time again, green grass has sold our listings faster and for more money. Our listing set a neighborhood record and flew off the market in just 2 weeks.
Most sellers underestimate the impact and excitement created by grass.
We like to compare home selling to online dating – green grass makes buyers swipe right.
Sarah’s home was located in a Gilbert neighborhood with new builds which most buyer prefer because they don’t want the hassle of repairs and upgrades needed for an older home. Jeff realized that in order for buyers to swipe right we would need to install sod in the front and backyard (originally all desert landscaping) and eliminate any functional obsolescence remaining.
We listed at Jeff’s suggested price of $325K and Sarah’s home went under contract in just 14 days within 97.7% of list price. This sale set a neighborhood record being the highest used home sold in the past 5 years and the first over $300K.
