This turnkey furnished unit had been almost completely redone from top to bottom with new appliances, flooring, paint and fixtures. As my seller and I began readying the property for market,  I shot high quality photographs along with a high-definition video tour to best showcase the property!

I released Unit F101 onto the market,  the morning of August 3, 2012. Within the hour we had a request for showing, a second showing to same buyer that same day,  and by the next morning a full price offer!  When a property is priced right, and you have professional photographs paired with a video tour, your property will sell.  We closed September 14, 2012 at our list price of $189,000. My seller, and the buyer were ecstatic!

There is still some great inventory in Alii Lani. Currently there are four units available, priced from $155,000-$209,000. Units that have sold from June 1, 2012 range in sales price from $138,000-$209,000. To view Alii Lani inventory and recent sales activity click here.

Ingredients To A Successful Sale, Kona Westwind #2 – SOLD!

We closed on this sale Friday afternoon, and my clients and I are heading out for a celebratory lunch in just a few hours!

 This great Kailua-Kona condominium unit sold in 22 days! How is that possible, in our current market? 

The answer is that this listing had the three key ingredients to a successful sale!

1. It was easy to show. No tenants, no 24-48 hour notice, it could be shown at a moments notice! 

2. It was always in showing condition. The unit was always in great shape. No messy bedrooms, no dishes in the sink, it always sparkled! That first impression is priceless, and it certainly paid off here.

3. It was well priced. My phone rang continually with interest in this unit. Buyer agents knew this was well priced, and would sell in a short amount of time. We had multiple showings, and immediate strong buyer interest. This culminated with an offer presented on our 20th day on the market.

These three ingredients, along with my video marketing, high quality photographs and extensive social media distribution all parlayed into a successful closing for my clients!

If you are considering selling, be sure to talk to Marco about what he can do to sell your property! Put Marco to work for YOU!
