Shishir and his wife already owned the home they were planning to retire in, but an impormptu walk-through a newly built single story resulted in a quick and unexpected change of plans. They bought the home three days later and prepared to sell their long-time family home. Shishir’s neice, who had just sold with Home Bay, suggested us to him. He hired us and we helped him through a stress-free home sale. Here’s his story.
Shishir and his wife weren’t planning to move, but on a sunny Saturday, they were out looking at model homes and they found the perfect single story house. After discussing their options, they decided a single story home would be better than their current two story as they headed into retirement. The couple bought the new house just three days later and made the decision to sell the home they’d lived in for fifteen years.
Trusted Family Referral:
Shishir had sold a home fifteen years prior with a real estate agent and had a good experience. He was preparing to hire an agent to help him through this sale, but then he had a conversation with his niece that changed his plans.
She recently sold a property with Home Bay, had a great experience and suggested her uncle do the same. After asking all the questions he could think of and learning about the cost savings Home Bay offers sellers, Shishir decided to list with us.
Unique Luxury Property Considerations:
When asked whether his home sold faster or slower than he anticipated it would, Shishir said, “It was about what I expected.” It often takes a bit of time to attract niche luxury market buyers to a higher priced home. Shishir was prepared for this and experienced it when he initially listed his home at $1.4 million. Home Bay’s co-founder, who is also a successful real estate broker, worked with Shishir to make sure his listing was consistently highly visible to Irvine luxury home shoppers.
Small, strategic price adjustments over time helped to keep the listing front and center on the MLS and popular listing sites to ensure maximum exposure. With Home Bay’s help and careful listing management, Shishir was able to sell his home relatively quickly for a great price.
Sensational Service from Listed to Sold:
“Home Bay provides the ability to list your home across all major websites and the MLS. The guidance from the Home Bay team was great. The team sent a professional photographer to take the listing photos, helped coordinate open houses, and made small price adjustments to increase buyer activity.” Shishir said.
