The Lake Team rescued us from Zillow! We decided to sell the house we lived in & move next door to a house we had been working on for over a year. My husband lived there for 42 years. We had been there for 20 years. The house is in the county so not much traffic.
1/23/2019 – Andrew came by to introduce himself & save us from Zillow. He told us he would list our house for $14,000 above our listed price on Zillow. I immediately thought he just wanted our business & expected him to come back later to lower the price. We had friends & family tell us they wouldn’t give us $200,000 for 2 of our houses. Andrew suggested we “neutralize” our house colors. We were not ready to list it on the market yet but we signed with The Lake Team.
2/11/2019 – We caved & accepted the help The Lake Team sent to help “neutralize” my colors. We DIY & we are to cheap to pay contractors but Andrew sent his contractor to help us get it on the market. His fees were fair enough that we were able to hire him.
3/2/2019 – The Lake Team started sending potential buyers to look at the house even though it was still “under construction”. We later realized that we would still be “under construction” today if Andrew didn’t start bringing people in & had us clearing out supplies/tools used.
3/17/2019 – The Lake Team officially listed our house. My phone immediately started blowing up with “we’re showing your house” notifications.
3/21/2019 – We HAVE MULTIPLE OFFERS = BIDDING WAR
3/22/2019 – We accepted an offer $7000 above listing price. $21,000 above our Zillow price! Closing date 4/26/2019.
3/28/2019 – Inspections came in & we agreed on the final offer $17,000 above my Zillow price, $3,000 above listing price. Closing date still 4/26/2019.
4/10/2019 – Property Appraised! We didn’t have to lower our price. WAY TO GO Lake Team!
4/26/2019 – We sold our house. The Lake Team even delivered a baby during this time!
We have heard horrible “my realtor jerked us around” stories from so many people. We waited for the “bad news” to come from 3/17/2019 right up to 1:45pm on 4/26/19. I mean really, who doesn’t get at least 3 closing dates? Our house was only on the market for 4 days! It all seemed to go to be true. They are our forever realtors!
