Meet Norah B.
“I loved how the process was so easy…My house sold in two weeks!”
Location of home: Hoover
Home sold for: $180,000
Norah B. lived in Hoover, but like any dedicated grandmother, she wanted to move to Huntsville to be closer to her grandchildren. As a self-made person, Norah thought that selling her home herself would be an easy solution to achieving her goal of enjoying retirement near her family.
Unfortunately, her FSBO home languished on the market for six long months. She was only able to show the home five times over the entire six months. To further add to the predicament, Norah was facing the prospect of losing money on the sale.
After six months, Norah decided to turn to LIST Birmingham. What initially attracted her to LIST was the fixed-cost commission structure. As she explains, “I was very price-conscious and wanted to control my cost because I was already losing money on the house.” As a result, she wasn’t motivated to pay the full commission that other agencies would have charged.
Fortunately, LIST Birmingham was able to help. After being on the market for just twelve days, the home sold – and Norah was able to move to Huntsville to be with her family.
“I loved how the process was so easy,” said Norah. “I loved how everything was electronic. There was nothing for me to do but sit back and wait. My house sold in two weeks.”
Added Norah, “My experience with FSBO really drove home the adage that Realtors sell houses.”
At the end of the day, would Norah recommend LIST Birmingham to someone else? “Absolutely – I already have!”
