My Favorite Dish 🍞 – TBG Update 10/9
We recently took over an expired listing that was on the market for six months with another agent. We kept the price the same but we redid the staging, the cleaning, and of course all the marketing and the overall presentation of the listing. Within days of going on market, the property went into escrow for the whole asking price, with a full price backup offer right behind the buyer in the first position. Both buyers seem to love the house. We do too!
It’s interesting to figure out and to understand why some houses sell really quick for a high price per square foot and other houses don’t sell as fast or for as high a price. It’s cool to analyze and to dive deep in order to figure out what inspires more showings and more interest and ultimately what brings sellers a higher purchase price for their home. There’s no doubt that there’s so much that matters – location, curb appeal, condition, outdoor space, marketing, and of course all the facets of the representation. It’s fun to figure out more ways and better ways to get it all right!
With all the Jewish holidays and all the holiday food, my favorite dish of all is Jim Leahy’s New York Times No Knead Bread. It’s so simple – just 3 cups of flour, 1 ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp yeast, and a little over 1 ½ cups of water. I love that there’s no eggs, sugar, or oil. I like to overflow the salt measurement (because I love everything salty.) Tonight, I’ll serve the bread with Morrocan salmon – slow cooked in sauteed peppers and chili peppers and chickpeas and a drop of tomato paste. Add a side of homemade Hummus and a medley of crunchy Meditteranean salads and it’s primed to be one of my favorite meals.
Wishing those who celebrate a joyous holiday and those who don’t, an awesome weekend!
