How To Sell Your Utah Home Over Asking Price

And so we sold the house for more than whatwe were asking for it.

That was actually a really good thing for us.

We had our askingprice at $148,500 and we sold it for $152,000.

Joel helped me through the steps of how togo about countering and stuff for some of the things they wanted for some of the thingswe wanted.

We were able to end up getting more for it.

Before we sold the home, we actuallyhad a different realtor, who, I'll tell you the experience between them/that realtor andyou guys was actually a lot different.

I mean you guys were communicating with us all thetime.

I mean Charity always knew what was going on when people were coming and stuff,if people would come, and when they actually they did come.

I mean before, there was actuallysomebody in our house and we really didn't know what was going on.

It kind of was weirdyou know.

The fact that that realtor actually never knew anything or have any feedback from the people.

It was bad on that part where you guys did a really good job with that.

We felt really informed like there was good communication between you guys and us.

Wehad a lot more showings with you guys were our realtor vs the other people too.

Overthere we had maybe (we had Coldwell Banker before) and we had maybe 1 showing every 2weeks.

And we had you guys we had like 2 or 3 showings every day.

And we had access toall of that information too – you guys were sending emails and stuff and I'd be able tosee how many people were in my home, what people's feedback was, what people thoughtabout the price and condition of the home.

I'm excited to have it sold! [Laughs] It'sactually a good feeling, you know, to get out, and re-explore the world.
