Is it possible to get more if you do more? This seller thinks so…

photo courtesy of ericortnerA couple months ago I wrote a post about cleaning a property for a seller that didn't live close to the property I was selling for them. I cleaned it just to try to get it to sell faster and that if I had to do it all over again that I would.

Well, I had a potential seller call me because they had a home that they wanted to sell that was just getting out of probate. They lived in another state and they knew the house belonged to a packrat. This person was willing to sign a 2% extra commission and a long term contract to have me take the listing and do my magic with it and get it sold.

I am heading out to the property next month when it is officially out of probate when all the liens and possible disputes have been resolved on the property, but I am going to take pictures and send them to the seller to show the difference. Hopefully they will give me permission to print the before and after pictures.
