We were delighted to receive this client testimonial last week which speaks directly to the point that determining property value is about far more than the numbers. We take both a collaborative and multi-disciplined approach in our analysis of property value for our clients…and the results speak for themselves.
While market statistics (sold history, current inventory levels, days on market, sold to list price ratio etc.) are of course important to understand, and largely inform our suggested list price, it’s about far more than just the numbers. Understanding the importance of location, property features, condition and uniqueness, along with timing, competition, market conditions, and property presentation. Our comprehensive real estate experience and market instincts, along with our personalized marketing program and negotiation skills is why our clients’ homes consistently sell for more money, and in a shorter period of time.
“We chose Jenn and Jeff Stephenson to be our agents for the selling of our house in Chinook Park in the spring of 2018. We had several agents make a proposal to us and some just worked on what the numbers said. Jenn and Jeff said we had a unique property, in a unique location, that should demand more than what the “numbers” indicated. They suggested we list the property for about $50,000 more than the other agents. It almost sold for that number and it sold in one day. Due to buyer financing issues that deal fell; however, it sold again in a couple of days. It was a unique property in a unique location and demanded top dollar, and they were the only ones who recognized it. We are both extremely pleased with the dealings with Jenn and Jeff. They advised us well at every step of the process. The photos of the house were excellent, and they concentrated on the key features of the house. Our house set a new standard for price per square foot in our area, and it was a very tough market with most houses selling for significantly below assessment value – not our house. We were very pleased and would not hesitate to use the Stephenson Realty Group again. Top service and top dollar.”
