How Do I Sell My Home

How Do I Sell My Home

The best real estate agents know how to market real estate. Here is an example of a blog post that helped us sell a listing we had in the Sanctuary of Minnetonka. We removed the photos, the address, the 3D virtual showing and the video of this home at the request of the new owners.

The Blog Post that helped us sell this Minnetonka Town House

Once upon a time in a cozy little nook in Minnetonka, there was a truly enchanting community of townhomes called The Sanctuary.  This is not a fairy tale but you will definitely be enchanted by the magic of this 2 bedroom, 3 bath, 2811 square foot residence. Keynotes of spacious elegance, gracious warmth, and peaceful serenity create the signature ambiance of this unique home, a theme that is evident both inside and out of doors. As I approached the main entrance, I felt vibes of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie design in the light fixtures and the door and this was a theme that continued inside the home, but quietly noted in characteristic trademarks like sconces, black wrought iron, rich natural woods, architectural niches and an open flowing floorplan. It is striking how comfortably it fits into its surroundings and that it was designed and situated to take advantage of the available light and space thanks to carefully...
