Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


Selling your home? Are you ready to catch the buyers from the first pitch?

Big League PitcherWhen selling your home it is alot like a baseball game. You are the picture and you have to try to pitch a perfect game. You have to present your home like a perfect pitch every time right from the beginning of the game. When you home goes on the market, you want to have your home ready to go, ready to show and ready to sell.

If you do not have your home ready to sell, then it is like pitching a slow ball to a major league player and you are going to be out of the game immediately. Buyers have lots of choices in a buyer’s market and right now that is what we are in. If your home isn’t perfect they will either pass on it for one that is or they will hit a line drive right back at your head with a lowball offer. (In my experience the first offer is usual the best offer)

So, are you ready to play ball the day your home goes on the market? If you are looking for a coach who can teach you how to have your home ready to sell from day one, then give me a call, so you can get the most money for your property in the quickest amount of time.

I enjoy the way you decided to explain the sales process in terms of a baseball game.

Todd -

You are always an MVP here in the ActiveRAIN league.  Batter uuuuup!

Good sports analogy Todd. I can think of a few sellers who need to have relief pitchers brought in.

Nice analogy..unfortunately in my market Northern Virginia we have low inventory so the buyers have to through at a right pitch to win the multiple bids.

In real estate like baseball there is always another batter!

Learn from your mistakes.

Just don't don't lose the game for your principle!

Nice analogy to let sellers know that their home had better be in game shape right from the first pitch or they're going to strike out.

So true Todd. Sometimes you only get one chance to make that best impression that will sell your home. Make it better than just good or be prepared to sit on the sidelines...I just had to put in a reference regarding baseball...
