Scott was a great realtor that demonstrated his experience in the Kelowna market to help us reach our goals with the sale of our home.
For us, we were needed to get top dollar out of our property in order to relocated in another country. After evaluating recent sales and looking at our property, he suggested a price that was aggressive but realistic. We checked out a similar property that we were competing against in our neighborhood that same morning that was listed at the same price as what he was recommending for ours.
The competing property wasn't even comparable to what we had. It had an unfinished basement, a poor layout and evident roof issues. The result was listing $10,000 higher.
It seemed to me that the 2 other realtors I interviewed were conservative on the recommended listing price in a very hot market considering all the benefits our property had. Scott was confident to list higher than anyone else because he knew our goals, the assets of our property, what the competition looked like and he knew that there would be interest due to the lack of inventory currently available.
Another detail that he took the time to do was measure the square footage. We gained an extra 150 square feet compared to what was listed when we bought 6 years previously. He knows that just a few extra square feet can add thousands of dollars to a property. Additionally, he uses a very talented photographer to take the pictures that ended up making our house great on the MLS.
Through the internal network of contacts he had within Remax, we ended up receiving a full price offer 1 day prior to the house being listed on the MLS. Scott explained the benefits of the offer and made us feel confident in our decision to sign the early offer.
We were also working around a tenanted suite. He was great at coordinating showings to impact the tenant as little as possible. He knew the tenant rules very well and made sure that the offers were accounting for the legalities related to tenanted properties during a sale.
I would recommend this realtor with experience that will ultimately help you reach your goals with the property whether it be a quick sale or selling for maximum value.
