Sold in 6 Days Above List Price: The Art of Potential
Take the case of this home that, despite its unimpressive curb appeal, became a real estate gem, getting $406,000—over $6,000 above asking price—and went under contract in just 6 days. At first glance, this property had some red flags: a drab curb appeal, a yard that needed cleaning up, and the neighbor’s homes that needed a little sprouting up. Yet, these challenges are where strategic real estate marketing and a skilled agent’s insight can shine.
Creating the Right Story
The homeowners were hesitant to spend big on improving the home’s curb appeal, fearing it might not pay off. However, an experienced agent with deep knowledge of Property Value Insights can turn perceived weaknesses into strengths. The key takeaway?

In this instance, we knew that prospective buyers looking to escape the constraints of homeowner’s associations (HOAs) would see value in the property’s generous space for their vehicles, boats, and trailers. The property’s highlights included a large lot with an electric gate for privacy, ample RV parking, a custom garage perfect for enthusiasts, and several outdoor sheds—a hobbyist’s heaven. The eco-friendly solar panels added to the appeal, offering sustainability and savings on utilities in an older home.
Targeted Marketing Efforts
Despite initial doubts, our Home Sellers were shocked that marketing and highlighting what they saw as a drawback was actually a selling point to home buyers looking for a home within their niche and uniqueness. The strategy included Tidying up their yard, getting rid of some unsightly junk, and on photo day, having our professional real estate photographer take the time to make sure the neighbor’s garbage cans were moved and to avoid any unsightly things in their yard were not in our seller’s pictures, between taking the time to move things, professionally shot HD photos it also became clear that aerial drone photography would capture the lot’s magnitude and the lifestyle it promised. In real estate, compelling aerial visuals can dramatically influence a sale.
