It only takes one buyer!

It only takes one buyer!

380 Old forge Crossing kitchen

We often use this expression when you have a listing that doesn't sell for one reason or another and everything is right with the price and the presentation. Our job then is to reassure the seller not to panic and understand that you need to find that buyer and sometimes it takes a little longer than others.

But, sometimes it works when you just list a property as well. Friday morning after posting coming soon and just listed blog posts, uploading photos to our website and syndicating the listing, video of the property on Facebook and YouTube we had our first showing for our latest listing 380 Old Forge Crossing in Devon PA 19333, a wonderful Tredyffrin Easttown condo, on the second floor with updated bathroom and kitchen, lovely hardwood floors and a great location in the development.

Soon after that appointment the phone rang and the buyers agent said let's do some business together. Soon after an offer was presented, some minor negotiation happened and a deal was struck and an agreement was signed. Just a matter of hours.

But as a Tredyffrin Easttown seller should you take that first offer? Surely more and better offers will flow in during this sellers market. Maybe or maybe not? Why prolong something when you are offered an agreement that provides everything you wanted.

Our seller was happy, he complimented us on doing everything right and getting the job done quickly. Now, the rest of our job begins, guiding the deal through to settlement through inspections, appraisal, title etc. This is the the part of the job so many people forget about and through it all we maintain communication with the buyers agent, the client and all the people involved in the transaction so that when the day of settlement arrives everything is smooth and relaxed.

Our job as Tredyffrin Easttown Realtors and Main Line Realtors is representing our clients be they buyers or sellers and putting their needs and wants first.

NIck and Trudy,

Funny, this is something we both say in many instances.  Wishing you  continued success, and congratulations

When we have done everything right and the home isn't selling, it always causes me concern and I feel like the seller thinks I am not doing my job, haha.

I always tell sellers that we only need one person to walk through the door. The right person. Congrats guys.

Good morning Nick. This is funny but also very very true. Well done.

That one buyer can be the first one or the last one

Very true especially in homes that are very "taste specific."

So true it does only take one buyer. I wish you continued success.

We've all said that at one time or another, Nick. Of course, for a seller who might have sat on the market for a while, it's often small comfort.

Hello Nick and Trudy,   I have some sellers that turn down showings and that could be the one buyer that will like there home.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 - Congratulations on a job well done!!!

May all your sales go smooth with successful results from beginning to end and may there never be an end to your successful career.

You know, I do notify other showing agents that we have an Offer if the sellers wish me to do so but, more often than not, that first Offer is just what they were looking for...or the best they're going to get, Nick! 

Great job taking the one that actually was what they were looking for! I know your sellers are absolutely thrilled with your services - you two ROCK!
