Location of home: 4222 Marden Way, Vestavia Hills, AL. Liberty Park Neighborhood
Home sold for: $692,750
A couple wanted to sell their two-story, five-bedroom home in the high-end Liberty Park neighborhood in Vestavia Hills. The home was originally placed on the market by a limited service company, which essentially means the sellers operated as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) but paid a company a fee to have the home put on the MLS.
Unfortunately, the home was on the market for an entire year and did not sell.
After a year, LIST Birmingham stepped in. LIST knew it had a challenge on its hands. The average five-bedroom home sold in Liberty Park was on the market for 498 days. Not to mention, only one-third of all five-bedroom homes in that neighborhood that were listed in the last year actually sold. The home in question had already been on the market for a year without any luck.
Through its full-service capabilities – including coordinating all showings on behalf of the sellers – LIST Birmingham was able to put the home under contract to sell in just four months. The home took only 155 days to sell, sold for 96 percent of its asking price, and sold for over $100,000 above the average selling price of all 5 bedroom homes in the same neighborhood.
Last – but not least – the sellers saved over $18,000 in commission.
Liberty Park and similar high-end neighborhoods can present unique challenges, but LIST Birmingham was able to help these sellers accomplish their goal of selling their home and saving lots of money. List Birmingham handled all marketing, coordinated the showings, negotiated the contract, and coordinated all aspects of managing the contract and the closing. Full agent service and a flat fee!!
