Selling your home in one day means leaving a lot of money on the table.


Recently, I’ve seen agents and sellers alike sharing stories about how they were able to sell a home within a day. Well, there’s a problem here: If you’re going with a buyer within the first day, you’re probably leaving a lot of money on the table.

I typically get this question about once per month, but I've asked about it twice this past weekend, so I thought it would be great to address it in a video.

We've been hearing over and over that there are no homes on the market, but we have some great data around this to share. Taking a look back at the numbers in the Metro Detroit and Ann Arbor area, in February of this year we saw 4,573 new homes go on the market. In March that number grew to 6,160 new homes, providing a 26% increase in the number of properties on the market.

Here’s how we’ve been helping scores of families buy homes in this market.


It’s the news you’ve been hearing and the pain you’ve been feeling for quite some time now: This extreme seller’s market makes things impossible for buyers. Less experienced agents will parrot this narrative, but here at The Perna Team, we’re not obsessing over the difficulties of the market. That’s because, in this past month alone, we’ve helped dozens of families secure the homes they want. Many of our winning offers weren’t even priced the highest; all of these satisfied buyers followed our eight-point strategy for standing out amongst the competition.
