September was a thrilling month. I had the opportunity to help buyers and sellers make moves with smart real estate strategies that paid off. From helping a client get $650k over the asking price for their beloved home on Edgewood Ave to helping my buyer land a beautiful Victorian in Noe Valley - here's a look at my September sales and the strategies that helped make them successful.
183 Edgewood Avenue • $3,850,000
4 BEDROOMS | 2.5 BATHROOMS | 2,550 SQ FT | CASH SALE FOR $650K OVER ASKING
Located high up on Edgewood hill near Mount Sutro, 183 Edgewood is a rare piece of real estate situated on a woodsy double lot with panoramic views from Downtown San Francisco to Angel Island and beyond. The living experience, architecture, location, and spectacular garden made the property a huge hit. However, I wanted to turn up our marketing a notch for this sale. One of the things we did was use story-telling to capture the living experience of the home and connect with buyers in a meaningful way.
We interviewed the long-time landscaper to gain historical insight into the garden and leveraged vintage family photos to compose journalistic stories about the property. This approach was wildly successful as the blogs received hundreds of views, supported the paid advertising campaign, and were a heartfelt tribute to the owner.
I wanted to thank you so much for what a wonderful job you did on the sale of our family home. The website you created and the blog/tribute to our Mom and her lovely garden were very nice and really captured the essence of living there. Thank you, Thank you!
