How to Sell a Home Over Asking Price - Case Study

Modern Living Room

Selling a condo is a high stakes experience, and today’s market is fast, furious, and sometimes full of surprises. There are many factors that enabled us to sell 85 Richdale Avenue,Unit 5 in just five days after it had been on the market for three months with another firm. 

Here’s what we prioritized:

  • Three big positives: the building’s Porter Square location, an elevator, parking (!) and private outdoor space. 
  • A challenge to overcome: Eye appeal. It just didn’t pop. In less than two weeks we transformed it with fresh paint, new quartz counters, and great staging. 

Just five days later it sold for $100,000 over asking price, with multiple offers no less.

But the real key success factor was knowing what was required to turn this condo into a super star. That ability is one mark of a good real estate agent, especially in today’s competitive market. 

If you are thinking of selling, you will also want to work with someone familiar with Cambridge and with your neighborhood. You’ll need a team that can identify the right prospects and knows how to price, position, and show your home to best advantage—see the flyer we created for this home.
