I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!


Yum!

Did you know that I serve ice cream at my Open House events every weekend?

Well, I don’t exactly “serve” it, but everyone who comes to my Opens receives a coupon for a free ice cream cone at West Seattle’s own, Husky Deli.

Why? Because it’s one way I differentiate myself from other run-of-the-mill real estate agents. Not by bribing you, but by demonstrating that I go above and beyond what is expected (did you get treats at any other open houses?), anticipate my clients’ needs and desires, then work to fulfill them.

As a Prudential Northwest Realty broker in West Seattle, I constantly strive to provide my clients — buyers and sellers — with exceptional service. Isn’t that what you want from your real estate agent?

This weekend, from 10A-1P both Saturday and Sunday, you can find me at 7426 44th Ave SW in West Seattle. This remodeled home, listed by my Prudential Northwest colleagues the Johnson Team, was originally built in 1921. It has four bedrooms (three on the upper level) two and a half bathrooms, 2,625 square feet of living space and a big entertainment deck to take in the Sound and Mountain view. MLS #75850. Listed for $625,000 and worth every penny.

Come take a look and pick up your coupon for free ice cream 🙂

Perception is everything in home values

Perception is everything in home values

This is one of those spectacular, sunny mornings that answers the question (usually posed by out-of-towners), “Why would you choose to live in Seattle where it rains so much?”

They don’t understand that one day like this makes up for a whole bunch of the others. And it’s okay with me if we keep it our little secret 😉

Right now (11:45AM) I’m holding an Open House at 7426 44th Ave SW in West Seattle and here is the view I’m forced to endure!

I was just showing the house to Keith, who has been admiring it online. He expressed his surprise that the house hasn’t sold yet (it’s been on the market for 138 days, which is longer than the current average of 63, but still not bad) because he believes it is a good value. It’s not my listing, but I think it’s well-priced, too. Four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2,625 sq. ft., beautifully restored 1921 home with a great view. $625,000. MLS# 275850.

Keith commented about how perception of a home’s value can be skewed once it has been on the market for awhile. So true. Often, a long market time means that the home is over-priced, but that’s not always the case. Sometimes it’s just a matter of waiting for the right buyer.

I will be holding this home open again tomorrow (yes, Superbowl Sunday) from 10A-1P. I hope you will come by and tell me what you think of the home and whether or not it is priced right. How do you judge home values?
