How Erik Sold His Mother’s House

(Erik J just after closing sale his mom’s house.)

Erik J is a busy builder with projects on multiple continents as well as in northern Virginia.  As the executor of his late mother’s estate he was responsible for handling disposition of her rental home so that his sisters and he could use the proceeds for important matters in their own lives.

The property was occupied by a cooperative tenant and it had some deferred maintenance.  After consulting with us Erik arranged the tenant moving out and asked us to list the property coming soon while he repaired a few items.

Within half an hour of putting the coming soon sign up we were asked to change it to offers considered status so that an eager buyer represented by a family member could make an offer.

The property sold as is, with no contingencies immediately for full price with no concessions.  Erik did complete the minor repairs he had planned and the delighted buyers moved right in.
