Sold! Carriage Glen executive home in Redding


Almost sad to see this beautiful Carriage Glen home leave our inventory.
We often sell homes quickly. But “often” doesn’t mean always. This turned out to be a lot more complicated than most home sale transactions. We stuck by our client over a lengthy transaction, and put in all the time and work needed to reach success.

Whether your home sale will be complicated or straightforward, we make a commitment to your success. We’ve sold 30 homes over the last 12 months. There are a few firms around here that can claim to have sold many more in that same time, but we like the fact that we have just enough work to provide highly individualized and personal service for our clients. You are not just another file number when you choose The Address Realty. We offer high level service and a commitment to your success.

Did we mention we list and sell homes in the Redding area for 1%? We do. Listing in the Shasta MLS starts at just $495. We offer high quality service and save home sellers money. Ask us how we accomplish that. No obligation.

Sold over asking price! Beautiful home in Spyglass Estates

This Redding home went from Listed to Close of Escrow in 44 days. And it sold OVER Asking price. It’s a nice home and we do exceptional work for Redding home sales, but some of the credit must surely go to the lovely decor and staging.
Front wide

Homesellers often overlook the power of home decor in sales. We’ve seen proper home staging produce amazing results. A vacant home is better than a cluttered home. But a well staged home can really increase what buyers are willing to pay.

One surprising thing we’ve learned over the years is that many buyers lack the ability to visualize. It’s like they can see only what’s in front of them, and cannot imagine it with their own furniture or decor. Or even more so, what it might look like with proper interior design. This home hit the sweet spot for many of the people we showed. This seller was smart to stage it well. It’s an effort that can really pay big returns.

This seller was also smart about picking their Realtor. We listed and sold this home for 1% commission. We shot all those beautiful marketing photographs you see here. The seller knew lots of other real estate brokerages, and could have paid more to sell their home. But they knew they would not get our top quality online marketing anywhere else. Paying (much) less to sell their home was just icing on the cake.

Selling homes and saving seller’s money without compromising quality of service is what we do at The Address Realty. If you know anyone needing to sell their Redding area home, do them a huge favor and pass our name along please. We get most of our business via reputation and word of mouth. We’ve closed 30 homes in the last 12 months, and continue to grow without losing the very high-touch hands-on service you deserve.

Requiem for FDotD

We had a creative idea back in 2009, as waves of foreclosed homes began to really flow into the Redding area marketplace. Why not pick the best deal we saw each day and post it online? Thus began FDotD, for our Foreclosure Deal of the Day website. We posted about 1500 or so bank and government owned homes over the next several years, nearly daily, until last year. We met lots of great people along the way, and we made many friends. We attracted bargain hunters, but also fans of what became our fairly snarky posting style. One could not avoid seeing some pretty stupid stuff during the worst of the REO (foreclosed homes for sale) peak, and we commented on it all.

Now though, there are much fewer REO homes for sale, and most cannot be be described as “Deals” at current market prices. Or they are an auction, so the “price” is only made-up. So, it’s time to fold up shop on FDotD, and use the server space for new things. Here to post one last time about it in case anyone wonders what happened to us, or searches online for FDotD.
Aside from the great people we met through FDotD, a favorite memory was receiving some free coffee. We know we had avid readers, but not all of them would use our services to buy. So we added a “Buy us coffee” tab that allowed for small donations. Thank you for letting us know you were out there.

Least favorite thing about FDotD was that every foreclosed home is a sad story. It fed into the realization that the rampant mortgage fraud crisis that nearly brought down the entire economy and which provided so many REO homes for us to write about, resulted in nearly no prosecutions. Really? When we started in 2009, it seemed likely that somebody was going to jail. Nope. Here we are 8 years later and it’s like it never happened. Snark took on a bitter edge, and nobody wants to read that.
banker-catWe hope it doesn’t happen again, but memories are short. Meanwhile, we apply our attention to more pleasant pursuits.

Thank you to everyone who supported us at FDotD!

    Sold! West Redding home on Laurel sells in 4 days

    This is one of those homes we feel like we could sell dozens, if only we had them in our inventory. We listed it and it sold in just 4 days, for over asking price. The builder had scraped an older home in 2006 to replace it with this charming and utilitarian home. What a great idea. Redding could sure use more infill housing like this.

    Sold! NW Redding home sells in just 4 days.

    After having been listed in the Shasta MLS with another firm for 264 days, this neat Redding home sold in just 4 days when listed with The Address Realty.
    To what do we attribute the difference in results?
    Among other things, our unmatched real estate marketing photography really had an impact. While others use their cell phone cameras to upload hasty marketing images, we take the time and effort to carefully shoot with Nikon professional camera gear. We get results, as this Redding home sale clearly demonstrates. This excellent outcome speaks for itself.

    We don’t approach marketing images as though “anyone” can do it well. It is our craft. And it isn’t some side gig, that we do between wedding shoots and senior portraits. We do professional real estate and architectural photography because it matters to get the best results for our clients

    The seller was kind enough to take a minute of her time (on moving day, no less) to offer her thoughts about her experience.

    Unscripted real people, with real results. Thanks, Terry!

    Oh, and did we mention we list and sell homes in the Shasta MLS for 1%? We do.

    Professional home listing services starts at just $495.

    Another great decision by the seller was to interview and select The Address Realty to sell their home. It’s a great idea to interview several of our local real estate brokerages when you need to sell. Just make sure The Address Realty is one of the brokerages you interview.
