Real Estate Ray's Blog: SOLD! ! !

SOLD! ! !

     I am really lucky to have great clients.  This home, in the Pocket area of Sacramento, had a couple of challenges and it took some teamwork to sell it.  For example, when it came time for inspections, we had quite a surprise.  The inspector found a lack of insulation in the attic above the master bedroom using infrared technology and there was no attic access.  Two bids to add the insulation came in at nearly $2,500.  The home was built in 2014 so my clients reached out to the builders, B and B Homes.  They were fantastic!  From start to finish, it took them a week to add insulation to the attic, then patch and paint the master bedroom ceiling, all at no cost.  The real mark of a business is what they do when the job is done.  B and B Homes could not have done any better.  They made the process easy.

     The other real challenge was trying to sell this home during the pandemic.  There was a lot of interest in the house, until the lock down order was put in place and we could not show homes.  We even had a buyer decide not to make an offer due to the order.  The day after we were told that we could show homes again, the same buyer came back with an offer contingent on selling their home. Their home was not even on the market yet.  About 45 days later, the deal was done.  Happy buyers!  Happy sellers!  Teamwork!  Sold!

    I can do the same for you.  Call me for details today!  (916) 698-8414

I love hearing about a builder that backs their work since I hear too often about how difficult it is to get a builder to correct a mistake that was made.  Congrats on the sale my friend!

Barbara Todaro, thank you, I do have a few things in the pipe line.

Michael Jacobs, it was a breath of fresh air the way B and B operated, notified one day, their rep was out to the house the next day, the contractor working on the job after the weekend and it done in two or three days. 

Brian England, They are serious about customer service.  Thank you!

Raymond Henson, SRES, GRI - What a sweet deal and amazing realtor you were to your clients. As I was reading the blog post and learned about the issues, i.e.,  no attic insulation and attic access, I immediately thought to myself, that was something the builder neglected to do. Since the house was built in 2014, I didn't expect you to get the builder to make the repairs that were originally neglected. But they did! And at no cost! That was GREAT!!!

I really liked the clean look and the wall and floor coverings too. It's a beautiful home and I'm sure your Sellers and the Buyers are smiling. Your clients must be very glad to have you represent them in the sale of their new home! Plus, I love the fact that B & B Homes assumed responsibility. That alone speaks volumes and must have given the buyers added assurance they were getting a great home from a very qualified and reputable builder. 

There is really nothing sweeter that a happy buyer, happy seller, and excellent TEAMWORK!!!

Congratulations on getting this one sold Raymond! When it comes to Sales, you master success and make clients happy too.  

I wish you all the best with continues sales.
