When I learned about Estridge’s Guaranteed Buyout program (now discontinued), I was amazed by their commitment to their clients. When I found out that Estridge was building the home for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, I was inspired by their generosity. Now that I have heard about (and understand) their Fully Furnished and Finished program, I am yet again amazed and delighted by Estridge. This pilot program won’t last long, you only have until January 10, so you better hurry up and call me!
When I first heard about the program, I wasn’t sure how it would work. I thought it seemed to good to be true. Maybe they were leasing you the furniture? Maybe you had to pay extra for it? I had no idea.
So, I went to visit my friend Angela at Whispering Pines in Avon. She told me all about the program and how it works.
Imagine walking into your brand new home after closing, and it is completely furnished already. You choose what furniture you like out of a catalog; you choose your sofa fabrics, you choose the style of desk in the office, you choose if you prefer light or dark woods. Do you want a leopard print rug in the foyer or would you prefer an oriental or floral print?
Then I realized, if a buyer gets all new furniture when they move in, they could then sell their previous home with furniture included. Imagine how that could help your home sell faster than your neighbor’s house!
But, my Great-Grandmother gave me this dining room set and I want it in my new house! That’s ok, instead of dining room furniture, you can choose a finishing option. Each room has a list of finishes you can choose instead of the furniture offered–like having a room painted, flooring upgrades, a water softener, or deck. It’s up to you!
What’s the catch?? Well, to be honest, the catch is that Estridge wants to sell homes! That, and you only have until January 10th to get signed up! I will be at Whispering Pines tomorrow (Saturday, December 19th) for an open house from noon-2, so come visit me and I can tell you more. No, I don’t work for Estridge, I’m just really impressed by this program, and I know that a lot of buyers will be too.
