5 Tips for Getting Your Offer Accepted in a Seller’s Market

You’ve been house hunting for months, and you’ve finally found your dream home. You love the layout, the amenities, and the neighborhood. The house is also listed at a reasonable price. You really can’t find any downsides to this property, and you can really visualize yourself living there. So, you’ve decided to make an offer on the home.

However, you have plenty of company. In many cities and towns, it’s definitely a seller’s market.

Agency Provides Long-distance Sellers with Logistics Help During Murphy, NC Home Sale

We had owned our Murphy, North Carolina home for some time. When we made the decision to sell the property, we wanted to work with a realtor with a reputation for getting results. We found out about The Poltrock Team by viewing their advertising. They are also well known in the Murphy area.

After two years of discussion on listing the property with ReMax, we finally reached an acceptable selling price. Based on that, we asked The Poltrock Team to assist us in selling our home.

Once we finalized the listing paperwork, the process got underway. We lived 12 hours away from our Murphy house, and The Poltrock Team gave us the support we needed to get the house ready for sale. When we needed cleanup, John and his team found us the right people to do the job.

The Poltrock Team’s Listing Coordinator arranged for a professional photographer to take pictures of our home. The pictures from the drone shots were excellent, and we still look at them.

Three weeks after listing with ReMax’s Poltrock Team, ReMax sold the house. This supports the fact that they are the top realtor in the Murphy area. Again during this selling phase, The Poltrock Team provided the support we needed.

We would rate The Poltrock Team a “10” for their outstanding real estate client service. We would absolutely work with them again.
