Gather round while I tell you all a horror/psychological thriller, aka, the story of selling my house! The heroine of my story is Milla H. Goldenberg (the H is for Heroine), and she earned the title in SPADES. The beginning – I wanted to sell my house, which I though meant listing the house, putting out a cheese tray, inviting in strangers, and letting nature take its course, but alas, no. Milla held my hand and patted my head while gently coaxing me into the spending of monies to make said house more attractive. I only cried a little. And then, lo, a miracle! A pre-market offer 25k over asking! Hands were wrung, champagne was drunk, good cheer all around! But of course, there were complications (I did warn you, this is a psychological thriller). The inspection revealed the house was Not Perfect (GASP) and the buyer dropped offer by 30k. I had a fainting spell. Milla procured her best metaphorical smelling salts, assured me their counter was ridiculous, and politely told them No Dice. We were off to market, and the offers POURED forth! We settled on a lovely couple, who seemed promising until it turned out they wanted to build in the back yard and actually thought that would be cheaper than just buying a bigger house (hot tip – it’s not). Another cancelled sale. Before I even had time to faint again, Milla moved on to our back up offer and had the ball smoothly rolling. Third time proved to be the charm, and though there was lots of back in forth on how much we’d be willing to pay in repairs, Milla fought for every cent and kept us both informed and calm. Well, calmer. She worked her butt off to secure that sale for us, and after a closing that took an extra week, even got us a per diem for every day the buyers lagged. My first recommendation is to never sell a house in LA if you have anxiety, but if you must, use Milla to do it. There’s really no other way.
