So pleased to break another Neighborhood Record and help our sellers get an amazing price for this 3 bed home in "The Trails at Calavera Hills" in Carlsbad.
I met the seller at an open house in February 2018. I stayed in contact for the next year and she called me a year later to help sell her home. The market was not in the best shape and the recent comps only valued the property around $570k. So we went to work on how we could market this property to get the very highest amount possible for our seller.
We recorded a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjK1j1Zt0to and went to work marketing it all over social media, pushing people to this website to sign up for more details and see the home before it went to market. We had over 100 people sign up. We know how people love to view properties before they go on the MLS. So we organized a pre MLS open house.
It worked! The very first couple to come through the door wrote an offer of $608k, $9k over asking price and this would set a price per sq ft record in the neighborhood. This was an amazing offer but we wanted to make sure we had multiple back up offers. So we listed the property on the MLS the next day and had over 75 people come to view the property and we could have sold this home over 10 times! We negotiated a 6 week rent back for the sellers that worked perfectly for their schedule and they couldn't be happier.

The reason we got such a high price for this home was because of the buzz we created through social media. When you know there are 100+ people interested in the property, you know you have to move quickly and make a record breaking offer to get the home.
