UPDATE: This house in Kalihi valley that I listed last Monday had about 25 showings in 1 week and is now in escrow well over the asking price of $550k. Most of the offers were above asking, and none were very much below the price.
Before listing it, we had the house painted and cleaned, and installed new fixtures, new toilets, new lights, and some new flooring. We also had all the rubbish removed.
Then we had the survey done, ordered a permit package, and completed the seller's disclosure.
Doing all the hard work up front means the sellers can now relax and wait for the closing date (read: check.)
Congrats to my sellers on getting their home sold quickly and above the asking price!
