Are you still in the days of a home selling itself? Have you begun to realize that it is possible to recruit a bit of help? Seriously..It really does take an entire village to sell a home! My mom always told me to pick my friends wisely. She would say.. " You are who you are surrounded by.." Good point Mom! So for the past few months I have implemented my "It takes an entire village approach" and it actually works. Here are the basics: Send a HANDWRITTEN note card to all the neighbors once the property is listed. Not just your everyday boring "JUST LISTED" CARD, but a brief explanation of the property, price, and don't forget the family. In closing ask them if they know of anyone who may want to be a part of their lovely community. Organize a neighborhood garage sell to assist in the de...

Mike Ray held an open house today at 52 Alumni on Lady's Island in Beaufort South Carolina.  It was a Broker Open House and he had 7 people attend.  He gave away 4 X $20.00 gas cards.  If you don't believe in good karma, you will now.  Earlier in the day, Mike visited another open house that was giving away a $50.00 prize drawing and he won that drawing!  His open house ended up only costing him $30.00 and he now has 7 Realtors who are more familar with the home and property!

We had two more homes close in Telfair on 8/15/08.  That currently brings our yearly statistics to 24 solds with a high sold price of $294,000 and a low sold price of $168,000.  The average sold price is $218,583 and the median sold price is $214,000.  The average days on the market for solds is 201 days with a median days on the market at 168.  The price per square foot on the two additional solds were $147.45 and $155.30.  The lower priced per square foot oddly was in Telfair Manor, not Telfair or Rosewalk. These two closing do not change our yearly prices per square foot from the low of $119.18 and the high of $158.48.
