Title: FOR SALE BY OWNER: Unique Garden Apartment in Sulmona's Centro Storico
Post by: Tartufa on April 16, 2018, 08:54:36 AM
We successfully sold our first apartment in under month, so now we are selling our principal home:  http://welcometosulmona.com/properties/unique-garden-apartment/

It went on the market last Friday, in all of the usual places, and so far feedback has been positive. 

Most of you have already bought but you never know... fingers crossed!

Superb place! Love it all, but those vaulted ceilings are just fantastic.
Do hope it is just house moving and not country Tartufa, would be a shame if you are leaving ...

Thanks for the nice feedback. Yes - we are heading back to the UK after what will be 10 years here - at the end of summer 2019. Not back to Oxford though - we are going to Liverpool for a new adventure!  Principally for our daughter who will be nearly 11 then. It's been great but we think we need to quite while we are ahead.

Well, I’m going to miss you and I think Sulmona will too.

The apartment is beautiful I’m sure you’ll have no difficulty selling.

I spent most of my formative years in Southport; just up the coast from Liverpool so I'm sure you're in for a great time.

No doubt many of the local girls still speak highly of me.  ;D

I'm bumping this one up as we have some new members but also because I thought it might be useful for other sellers. Most of the sites offer an option to upload a video or insert a link to Youtube or Vimeo so it make sense to offer a virtual tour if you can. Here is ours: https://youtu.be/pwtgLHY2pp0

We did it on an iPhone and then added some jolly Italian themed music and a title. Took some time and more than a little patience, then you need a YouTube and / or Vimeo account (not complicated) and a bit more patience.  Not too tricky really.

Excellent video and great idea, sometimes it’s difficult to work out the layout of Italian homes because they are less “standard” than many in the uk.

I love the music too😉 Thanks for sharing a good idea.

Layout!  Yes!  First mistake I think is not including proper floorpans.  And I don't mean the official ones produced by a geometra. Floorplans which show the layout of rooms and their relative sizes etc. Especially for Italian houses which may have been butchered and mucked about with once or twice. If you are marketing your sale yourself then I think you might be forgiven for not realising this but even the agents don't see to get it.  I will attach our floor plans here so you can see what I mean. By the way we had two contacts immediately after posting the video yesterday (not from here though...) and one has booked a viewing. So it was definitely worth the effort.
