TRADING PROPERTIES - A success story

Atlanta Real Estate - Homes for Sale in Metro Atlanta GA

I just returned from the closing attorney's office and I AM SO PLEASED to say that my client and I just completed a VERY successful house trade.

Here's a bit of background...

I've been working with a local home builder in Marietta for the last year and due to the declining market, we were having trouble selling one of his homes at a price that would allow him to break even.

As many of my fellow Active Rainers know, I do my best thinking (and blogging) at about 2 am.  It was at this late hour that I had one of those "light bulb moments" and came up with the idea of trading properties.  After proposing this to my client, he was a bit skeptical, but said that I could give it a try.  Within TWO weeks, we had a perfect candidate for a property trade.

THE BUYER SOLD US THIS HOUSE...home sales in Marietta and atlanta ga









 AND UPGRADED TO THIS construction homes in Marietta and Roswell GA                                         

The Seller received an offer that was OVER THE ASKING PRICE for his new construction home, which he was thrilled about!

We put the "trade" house on the market and within 60 days, I was able to sell the "trade" home at approximately 98% of the list price. 

It was definitely a "WIN WIN" for both parties.  The buyer was able to upgrade to a new home without having to worry about selling his home -- which would have been difficult with three children, an infant and an aging grandmother -- and my client was able to make a small profit on his home and break even on the "trade" property.
