Even in Vancouver’s current red hot housing market, having the right Realtor can make all the difference. Jamie Stewart helped the owners of 6051 Selkirk Street sell their luxury home for $150,000 over the asking price, after it had been on the market for nearly a year with another realtor.
Despite excellent European construction and a modern interior design, the home sat for almost a full year -- 322 days -- with APPROXIMATELY 70 people coming through to view it.
When other homes were selling in a matter of days, and with no acceptable offers coming in for theirs, the owners decided to switch realtors. They initially thought all realtors were the same, and they went through multiple realtors before a friend told them about Jamie, whose marketing strategy was super-efficient, and who was able to have their listing up and running within a few days.
After an in-depth market analysis, Jamie called in her stagers -- so the design and decoration of the home would appeal to homebuyers -- and her photographer, for professional photos and a fully-customized video to attract as much interest as possible -- a dynamic marketing package perfect for the home and target audience.
The result was swift and positive. Buyers came through for a first time, second time, and even third time, connecting to the property in a way they hadn’t before. Two offers came in at the same time, and Jamie and the sellers worked until 1:30am that night negotiating the transaction.
After a year of idling on the market with another agent, the home sold in 14 days, for $150,000 above the list price with Jamie Stewart.
