I have been in Real Estate for 12 years and today is the day I have been waiting for. I am so excited I can’t stand it. Are you ready? Today I listed “The Best House In Poinciana”! Don’t believe me? Then call the Seller and ask him. “Mr. Seller, I hear you have “The Best House In Poinciana”.” “Yes, you are correct, just like I told Broker Bryant this morning, I have the best house in Poinciana.”
Now folks, how many times have you heard this? I think I hear it at least once a week. It never ceases to amaze me how many people think they have “The Best House In Poinciana“. What’s really funny is that Poinciana is a cookie cutter community. Almost all of our 17,000 homes are very similar. They are concrete block one or 2 story homes with a 2 car garage sticking out in the front and sit on a 70×100 lot. Most are only 1 to 5 years old. And since we have color restrictions, they are all neutral earth tone colors.
So what makes a house, “The Best House In Poinciana”? Well let’s see if I can explain. Better yet, let me give you a list of the upgrades that make this “The Best House In Poinciana”, according to the Seller.. Ok, here goes.
Garage door opener.
Chain link fence.
An orange tree seedling.
Beautiful builder grade beige carpet.
White GE appliances.
Oh, I almost forgot, it sits on an oversized lot. Standard lots are70x100 and according to the public records this one is 71×100. So there you have it.
Anyway, my job is to get this house sold. Currently there are 50 homes that are almost identical to this one, on the market. Ranging in price from $249,900 to $315,000. Quite the spread. Most are in the $270,000 to $280,000 range. My goal, always, is to make my listing “The Best House In Poinciana”. So how do you turn the imagined “The Best house In Poinciana” into the true “The Best House In Poinciana”? There’s only one way that I know of. Price. Price will make any property stand out. In this case I was able to convince the Seller to Range Price the house from $249,000 to $269,000 with $269,000 being a full price offer. His house will now show up in the number one position out of 50 similar houses in the MLS. This means more showings, more offers and a quick sale.
So folks, if you are looking for a great 4 bedroom 2.5 bath home with over 2800 sq ft of living space, then come on down to Tutas Towne, I have just listed “The Best House In Poinciana”. AGAIN!
