As we all know, no two homes are ever the same and that was definitely the case with a recent sale in Glasgow’s Dowanhill.
When the homeowners decided to put their home on the market, they spoke to various estate agents trying to find someone who was experienced with private home sales as they wanted to keep the sale of their home off the market.
They decided to instruct Vanilla Square as they felt most comfortable with our work and our extensive database of off-market clients as well as our track record of highly personal, discreet services.
We had few potential buyers already in mind and had an exact idea of how to pitch the sale to the number of qualified parties while keeping the sale out of the public eye. Our client was delighted when we managed to find the perfect match and seal the deal within one week.
The home was sold in excess of £1.2M, way above the Home Report valuation and while the most recent sale on the street sat at £1.1M. Part of the deal we negotiated was also an extended date of entry which was a key aspect of the sale for the owners.
It is an incredible moment of pride to see our small but effective team working together beautifully to bring together a home seller and a home buyer in the best of circumstances for everyone involved.
