Facts: Will Bateson was referred to me by a friend of mine, who just sold their home in San Jose for $120,000 over the asking price, with multiple offers. My home sold for 71,000 over the asking price, multiple offers, no contingency in 4 days. I feel Will's greatest strength is in his negotiation skills. Although I know other realtors in the area, I feel no one could have done a better job. Process: The home I was selling had the original kitchen and baths from the 70's. Will was very helpful in guiding me with updates that would be helpful to the home sale. I replaced a carpet in the bedroom, 2 floors in the baths, new front landscaping needed to be done due to the drought. He made it clear to the buyer's agent that the house was for sale "as is", although he did not list it this way, so the buyer had the ability to get the financing they needed. Will also recommended staging the house. Will's strategy worked out very well for me. On day 3, I was very nervous, no offers yet. Will explained to me that similar to ebay, no one puts in an offer until the last minute. He was correct. All the offers came in at the last minute and all over asking price. Thanks Will.
