Sold! Lincoln Square classic house closes after multiple offers

Before going back on the market we worked with our sellers and contractors to make significant improvements to the home.
Every real estate transaction is different.  This classic Lincoln Square house at 5043 North Oakley, Chicago IL 60625 with inviting front porch closed last week after multiple purchase offers. Despite enthusiastic offers over list price we had trouble closing the deal.  After the first two deals did not close we advised our clients to make strategic repairs and improve the curb appeal.  The result was a selling price $5,000 over the $599,900 listing price!

In this case the home seller lived out of state.  The house was tenant occupied during the first attempt to sell.  After they moved out we compiled a list of projects based on the home inspections and evaluation by a trusted independent contractor (including some structural work). We quickly completed the improvements and deep cleaning by managing the project daily. We sold the home the first weekend back on the market and avoided a long vacancy for the sellers.
