I worked with an investor for the last few years. The investor had several rental properties throughout the Atlanta area. When the renters moved out we would move in to update or remodel. Once the home was completed and placed on the market we usually had full priced offers within 48 hours. I did the design work, consulted with the workers, reviewed the final product, hire professional photographers, and negotiated the price and closing costs.
My transactions closed about 78% faster than most real estate agents with my seller making an average $4000.00 more than the other homes in the area. (this information was based off MLS data)
