As quoted in the Seattle Times article, I tell my clients “If you can see it so can they“.
As a real estate broker in Seattle, I work with buyers and sellers. We live in one of the hottest real estate markets in the country and I coach my sellers to understand that it’s very difficult to be a buyer. Many have looked and upwards to 15 or more homes and have lost several offers. Their time spent is emotionally exhausting. True, because inventory is so low, they will compete for a whatever is available but if you want to fetch the highest and best price for your home tackle those punch list problems before you go to market.
