We can’t predict next year or 18 months from now. All that we can do for our clients is study the market, review the economic predictions and position them with the best strategy for their current goals- both personal and financial.
What worked in pricing and marketing real estate last year or even a few months ago is not generating as much success right now. However, for many people there are great opportunities in the current market with some increased inventory of homes available. Having worked through many markets, experience has taught me that no matter the market condition, strategy is key. Strategy takes tools, poise, passion and some fun!
We recently hosted an event last month that was aligned with our strategy of maximum market exposure, passion for what we do and it turns out to be lots of fun with a successful result.
The property sold and closed to happy new owners for 94.6% of list price when in a fraction of the days on market compared to some of the neighboring homes. Creating a buzz, maximum market exposure and showing how the property can be enjoyed at a high level is key.
We put together a luxury real estate networking event at 112 Hickory Rd in Pine Ridge Estates
I am proud to share that we were overjoyed with support from the luxury community- including real estate agents from various companies as well as affiliates that work in the luxury sector here in town that helped to sponsor and support not only a great party but a great event to kick off the most charitable weekend of the year in Naples.
Here’s what a $7 million house, $4 million worth of cars, and about 120+ like-minded business people look like having fun supporting a great cause. The $710 raised for St. Matthew’s house was just a byproduct of fun and networking!
