Success Story of Selling Real Estate on the Wasatch Back

Listing Agent in Park City, Midway & Heber, Utah

Terry Martin ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 28 mins ago "We had high expectations for Derrik Carlson as he came highly recommended. However, we never expected to list our home and close in ten days! When we told Derrik we called him because we heard he was the best realtor in the Heber Valley. He humbly remarked, “Well sometimes you get lucky.” Derrik is very professional and personal. He came over within the hour of the first day we called him. He took excellent pictures of the home. During the selling and closing experience, he stayed on top of all the transactions and paperwork keeping us informed daily. We had a positive experience with Derrik Carlson as a Real Estate broker."

It's challenging to tell a homeowner that I have different techniques and technology to help sell real estate in Park City, Midway, and Heber for top dollar in the shortest amount of time that is superior without it sounding like "salesman smoke." Here is a quick story that illustrates my ability to outperform the competition. 

In mid-September I met with some homeowners that had their home on the market for 30 days and only had four showings - they were frustrated with the process of selling their home and wanted to get their home sold quickly! The homeowners asked their neighbor, that works in the real estate industry, who the best Realtor was to help sell their home and they called me right away. That next morning we sat down at their kitchen table and discussed their needs and goals when selling their home. Similar to many situations I have been in before the homeowners wanted to have the home sold for top dollar and in the shortest amount of time - simple right? The sellers and I worked together to put my marketing plan in place and to have the home properly positioned for marketing ... we did a $100.00 price reduction from their last listing. In two days we had updated photos, the furniture was repositioned, and we were up and running on the Park City MLS and Wasatch Front MLS. That Sunday, two days later, I received a call at 7:45 PM from a gentleman with a deep strong voice that said he had looked at the home online and he wanted to make a cash offer at 99.23% of asking price with a 10 day closing. I'm usually reluctant to accept an offer like this but because the buyer is very familiar with the area we chose to accept the offer after his agent did a walkthrough. The inspection was fairly simple since the sellers worked so hard to have the home positioned correctly to sell but the property did test high for Radon. The property was sold, funded, and recorded in 10 days! 

If you've had trouble selling your property or thinking of selling and your property is located in Park City, Midway or Heber give me a call to discuss how I can get your home sold for top dollar in the shortest amount of time!
