Though they only lived in their home for a year, Melisa and her family had an exciting reason to sell their beautiful El Cajon property. "My husband is about to get out of the Navy and we want to move back home to Florida - so we decided it was time!"
It would be the family's first time selling a property, but rather than go the conventional route of hiring an agent, Melisa and her husband decided to consider more affordable alternatives. So how did the couple new to real estate sales end up with HomeBay?
Several months back, Melisa's neighbor used HomeBay to sell his property. Melisa had noticed the HomeBay sign in his yard, so she decided to ask him about his experience. Her helpful neighbor had nothing but positive things to say.
After finding out using HomeBay would afford them the opportunity to hang onto all the money they were anticipating spending on an agent commission, Melisa and her husband were excited to get started.
Professional photos are a powerful sales tool that can really pay off for sellers, especially those looking to move their home quickly. Before listing, Melisa and her husband brought in a professional photographer to capture all the features of their home. Just days after the couple listed their property, a strong offer came in at just under asking price. The couple happily accepted it and headed into escrow.
Selling a home can be stressful, especially if it's your first time. There are literally hundreds of documents to deal with, tons of steps in the escrow process to navigate through, lots of legalese to decipher and a huge amount of money involved.
Despite all of those things, Melisa and her husband were able to sell the first home they ever purchased quickly and easily. That's a testament to the quality of the software and service we offer to all of our clients.
So as a new home seller, how did the process go for Melisa? "It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be - and it took a lot less time than I expected. Our Transaction Coordinator and everyone else on the HomeBay team helped us every step of the way."
"The biggest benefit was all the money we saved. You literally save thousands of dollars using HomeBay and they are very helpful and knowledgeable [throughout the process]. We're putting a majority of our money savings into our daughter's college fund."
When asked if she'd use HomeBay again and if she'd recommend our services to other sellers, her response to both was a confident, "Definitely!"
You heard it straight from the mouth of a first-time seller who is thrilled with her home sale outcome; you don't have to pay high agent commissions. Instead, you can enjoy a stress-free sale with comprehensive, expert support for a tiny fraction of the cost.
