Sellers Trying Again for a Different Result

Sellers Trying Again for a Different Result
Our Edge real estate office here just closed up a sale that could be called a “rescue,” where we took over listing a home that had run 3 months without selling. With a new look and our lively marketing, we got the sellers $94K more than they had been offered under the prior listing.
We decided to look around MB and see who’s trying right now to spin the wheel and get a different result.

3616 Elm (3br/2ba, 1714 sqft.) and 3004 Oak (3br/2ba, 1794 sqft.) had both run for a while this Summer without success.
The Elm property had begun at $2.300M, but quit after some cuts didn’t work. It was most recently at $1.599M under a new agent, needing about 2 weeks to ink a deal.
(Both 3616 Elm and 3004 Oak are currently listed by Daniel Jensen, Jensen Realty.)

513 N Dianthus Street (3br/3ba, 2770 sqft.) sold for $3.200M in April, $200K over asking at the time.
The home got a pretty thorough style makeover, with new flooring, paint and accents. Something else changed, though, because the home came back to market in August at $3.600M, with an out-of-area agent.
Cuts didn’t work, and the sellers changed agents, bringing back the local office that had sold it to them in April.
And the price is way down to $3.349M.
