Andrew came to our firm in a state of despair. His [never-married] brother, who had been living in their childhood home, was quite ill and was not going to make it out of the care facility. However, expenses were mounting and a quick sale of the home would be a perfect solution. Although the home needed a lot of updating, it was located in a very desirable neighborhood. We opted for a strategy of Listing the home at a below-market Price. This drew over 50 buyers to the group showing and the house was placed under agreement within 48 hours at a price well-above asking. Sadly, Andrew’s brother passed away within days of the agreement, and compassion was called for immediately. Close cooperation and constant communication with all parties enabled the deal to stay together and allowed Andrew to complete the sale once he had all other affairs in order.
