9115SEAlderSOLD! 9115 SE Alder st, Portland OR 97216.  Listed and closed in just 21 days! We received 14 offers and accepted a cash offer to full-fill my clients need to purchase their new home with no contingency. We listed at $214,900 and closed for $227,874.50.

How did we do this? With a little elbow grease and a plan! Portland is currently experiencing low inventory combined with low interest rates and a growing economy creating a fantastic sellers market.  But a seller’s market doesn’t guarantee a quick sell!  You must prepare and market your home in the absolutely best light.  This is what I strive to do with everyone of my listings. Whether it be worth a million dollars or a hundred thousand.  I market a home to it’s max every single time! 9115SEAlder1

My marketing plan consists of:

~ A thorough market analysis. Researching recently sold homes in the area and most importantly the home owners opinion!


~Prepping and staging the home. De-clutter! Less is so much more!


~Picking the perfect price. Let’s face it, price is everything! Over pricing your home is a huge mistake. Just don’t do it!!!  The definition of market price: is what a buyer is willing to pay. 9115SEAlder2Encourage a buyer to pay for your home! Don’t discourage them or give them a reason to try to negotiate you down. Take advantage of today’s influx of buyers.


~ Professional photos. Again, whether its a cottage or a mansion, market your home in the best light.  Get professional photos to truly highlight the homes best assets.


~ Have a game plan. When a home first goes live I coach my clients on what to tell buyers and agents so everyone is on the same page and terms are known upfront to any interested party. I  set a time and date we will be reviewing offers. This free’s up a lot of time and relieves stress for all parties. Have a plan and stick to it!


~Constant contact. As my client you will always know what is going on. I make it a point to stay in touch through out the entire process. This help relieve stress and keeps us on track to sell quickly!
