With only two days to go until our house goes under the hammer we’re feeling confident it will sell – and for a great price.
After a fantastic open home with 10 groups of people through last Saturday (maybe it was my chocolate cupcakes they came for), another couple through yesterday and one more tomorrow, things are looking promising.
More than 30 groups of people have now seen our home in all its glory – floors polished, windows gleaming, vanilla-scented oil and cinnamon cooking aromas wafting into the kitchen inviting visitors to taste one of my offerings. We feel we’ve done everything possible to ensure a good result and we’re very confident in the job our agent – Tracy Stein from McGrath Central Coast (http://www.mcgrath.com.au/103548/?searchID=2528976) – has done. She has been amazing!
But there is one thorn in our side. Only last week a home for sale close to us came to our attention. It is in the same price bracket so it is our direct competition. This home has a pool and water views, but ours has a better position, bigger yard and better interior. It will also be auctioned on Saturday – 45 minutes after our home, meaning buyers have to choose one or the other auction to attend. The agent has put a price guide on much lower than this home should attract and we have lost some of our interested buyers to it, thinking they will get better value for money.
While this isn’t ideal, only one buyer can get that home, leaving lots to battle it out for ours, right? And this might even create more excitement in ours because no one wants to miss out (there aren’t that many properties for sale in Wamberal right now). I’m choosing to see it as a challenge, but a good one.
So if you haven’t already, check out the link above and get anyone you think might be interested in a three-bedroom brick home in Wamberal to sign up as a registered bidder and come to the auction at 9.45am on Saturday.
Wish us luck!
