On June 19th I had lunch with the seller and upon leaving, the plan was to sell her condo next year. Next year turned into listing this condo six days later after she found the perfect replacement property the next day. Here’s what it looks like to sell in Denver’s red hot market: ⠀
Monday: sellers meeting and decluttering⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tuesday: photos ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Wednesday: create marketing – seller skips town for the weekend⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thursday: showings start & we have two offers by Thursday night⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Weekend: additional showings and negotiation lead to $10K over asking offer and we are under contract by Sunday night. ⠀
Never, ever will I take for granted the speed in which the Denver market moves… sold in three days instead of three months. Never ever will I take for granted the power of buying your first home. For this gal purchasing in an equally hot market four years ago was overwhelming. Although there are a few regrets, owning the last four years was a powerful move that created a big wealth boost to get the seller into her next place.
