We interviewed two of the top producing teams in Scripps Ranch, and also Scott Waid, based on recommendations from the Scripps Ranch Information Exchange. The two Realtor teams suggested we price our home $50k less than Scott Waid suggested we could get for our home. After listening to Scott’s pricing rationale, and his suggestions for improving our home’s marketability, we listed with Scott. Not only did he deliver, but we saved thousands on prep work, and received multiple offers resulting in another $20k over his recommended list price. In addition, our move out timing was coordinated perfectly, to the day. Scott was there for us every step of the way. His pre-list marketing was very effective, and our only open house generated lots of buyer interest. Not only did we net roughly $70k more than we likely would have by using another Realtor, but we dealt with one agent that kept us completely informed along the way. If you are thinking of selling your home, you definitely need to speak with Scott.
We highly recommend Scott Waid, and couldn't be happier with the excellent service and superb results he delivered. Scott provided expert advice throughout the entire process, and sold our house in only 3 days on the market! Scott made us feel like we were his only client, and he has continued to provide valuable advice to us even after the close of our prior home and new home. He truly cares about his clients and it shows in his superior service.
Scott was great!! Even in this market he found buyers and sold our home. Scott has an amazing ability to take complicate matters and simplify them (a blessing during a complicated sale and purchase!) Scott stepped up to the plate when our primary agent was out of town for a couple of days and didnt miss a beat. Best real estate experience we have had and this is our third home. Thanks Scott!
Scott KNOWS Scripps Ranch!!
His market analysis was spot-on! By listening to his market analysis and following his advice, I put my home on the market and had a signed contract jn less than 2 weeks.
He helped with every single step along the way.
I know that I made the right choice when I listed my home with Scott!
My wife and I ran met Scott at an open house in the Scripps Ranch area and he immediately made us feel at ease. We were looking to sell our condo in Scripps Ranch to move to a single family home in the area but didn't have an agent at the time. Scott was knowledgeable, professional and didn't put any pressure on us to sign up with him. We knew he was our guy.
A month later not only had he sold our condo for a fantastic price he also found us our dream home! The entire experience was fantastic. Selling and buying a home in a short window of time can be stressful but Scott was always there answering our questions and showing us great houses in the Scripps Ranch area.
Needless to say, I highly recommend Scott to anyone thinking about buying or selling a place in San Diego. I can say that my wife and I will never go to anyone else if we ever to decide to sell our home in the future!
Scott sold our home at the price we wanted despite significant challenges. His professionalism, persistence, patience, creativity and focus made all the difference. Do yourself a huge favor and hire Scott to sell your home.
When we decided to sell our home (and buy a new one), we made sure to interview multiple agents, knowing these would be some of the biggest financial decisions of our lives. Scott was one of the agents we decided to interview simply because we had seen his activity and marketing in our neighborhood. From the very first meeting, Scott was professional, attentive, and genuinely interested in working with and getting to know our family. His knowledge and understanding of market conditions, as well as all of the details that go into selling and buying a home are second to none. We knew we wanted to work with him and once we gave him the green light, he hit the ground running to get our home sold. Scott put our home on the market and within 5 days we had 10 solid offers, some of them above asking price! Scott helped us negotiate a deal that contained everything our family wanted and needed to get into our next home. Once we had the sale of our home in process, we hit the ground running on finding a new home as the clock was now ticking. We were looking for a new home in North County, and decided we wanted Scott to help us with our purchase as well because of the confidence we had gained in him. I don't know that anyone could have put in more time and effort than Scott did in helping us find the perfect new home. Even though he does not generally work in the North County market, Scott took the time to research the areas we were wanting to live in so that he truly understood how we could be competitive in finding a home and writing an offer. We spent many hours, days and weekends in our quest for a new home. All that time we spent looking, Scott was right there with us. He never sent us with another agent or an assistant or asked us to go on our own. He was truly committed to our family and helping us out. Anytime we called Scott, he would answer his phone or call back shortly thereafter. Same goes with any emails or texts we sent as well. Scott responded...always. It was truly a pleasure getting to know Scott and we feel like we gained a friend in him. He ended up finding us a home right where we wanted to be and at a price that was just right for us. Scott has a real personal touch to the way he handles his business. He is extremely smart with the business side of the transactions and at the same time is also very genuine on the personal side of the transactions. We will gladly recommend Scott to anyone we know with real estate needs. Scott cares about the people he works with rather than how big his paycheck will be. He does things the right way and we are very thankful we had him in our corner for both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new dream home. Thank you, Scott!!!
Scott is my ideal realtor - a professional my wife & I can trust. We were struggling with our home search and met him at an Open House in Scripps Ranch. His knowledge of Scripps Ranch and ability to keep our purchase on track were invaluable.
He's transparent and operates with integrity and fairness. I was consistently impressed with his ability to listen and translate his understanding of our needs into workable solutions that got our deal done. I would definitely work with Scott again!
Scott Waid has been my Realtor on two different transactions. The first being the purchase of my own home and the second, the sale of my late Father's home. Both transactions had completely different challenges that could have been overwhelming and deal breakers. Both went smoothly. This last transaction went so quickly and smoothly that I actually thought that the sale wasn't going to go through because I hadn't received any calls with problems or questions. Closed in 10 days! Scott is one of the most honest and sincere people I have ever met. Scott absolutely goes the extra mile and beyond for his clients. I wouldn't want anyone else to represent me, I will be a customer for life.
Scott is an extraordinary professional to work with throughout the home purchase process! Having completed 5 previous home sales and 4 cross country relocations, Scott stands apart from all others with his personal and patient approach. Scott spent considerable time upfront to understand our needs and preferences and then honed them following each home viewing experience. He is action oriented and never had to be reminded to do something and gently kept us on track along the way. He seemingly works 24/7 and was always available for questions, even while on vacation! Once we located the right home, Scott was successful in negotiating our offer and stayed engaged even changes came about. We could not have asked for a better outcome. I would highly recommend Scott as he is responsive, knowledgeable and the dedicated professional willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everyone wins!
I had the honor and pleasure of working with Scott both as a seller 10 years ago, and as a buyer a few months ago. Scott is a hands-on, consummate professional. When we were selling our home, Scott literally came over with his tools to help make minor repairs to our property. When we were buying our current home, Scott was always readily available to answer questions and walk us through each step of the process. Scott is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate. He is absolutely The Best in the business.
I am a first time home buyer. I approached Scott in October with the intention of purchasing a home, and I could see right of the bat how knowledgeable and seasoned he was in the business. We worked together looking at properties that fit into criteria defined by me with suggestions and advice from Scott based on his several years of expertise, knowledge of the local communities and weighing all the pros and cons. He never pushed me into any decision and helped me weigh my options carefully before making any decisions. By December we were able to identify a property that I really liked and proceed with closing. He was available for consultation and discussions throughout the process and was a thorough professional. I can unabashedly give him 5 stars in every aspect of the home buying process. You can't go wrong with Scott!
We have worked with Scott Waid on 3 transactions include a primary residence sale, primary residence purchase and a rental property purchase. Scott has been very proactive in making sure that each transaction was smooth. For the recent rental property purchase, Scott walked us through the pros and cons of a short sale or bankruptcy vs. a traditional sale. Scott also shared some of his personal experiences in managing an investment property, finding tenants, and generating lease agreements. He helped us through all facets of the purchase including coordinating and recommending quality vendors for the home inspection and repairs. We have had great experiences with Scott and will use him again for any future real estate transactions.
Thank you again for doing a fantastic job selling our house. From our first meeting through the closing you were responsive, insightful, and helpful. We were particularly pleased how you:
• Educated us on the market to set our expectations
• Helped us get the house ready, not only by showing us how to stage the home, but also by actually getting your hands dirty and patching holes
• Marketed the house in a way that drew four offers in the first few days on the market
• Provided great negotiating insight to finalize the sale
• Stuck with us all the way through the closing, moving, and beyond
Your predictions at every step were spot on, which meant there were no surprises. We are especially thankful that you always answered your phone or otherwise responded promptly to all our concerns. Please feel free to share this with others who are considering you to be their real estate agent.
