Home Bay Success Story: Melisa from El Cajon, CA

Some not-so-positive experiences with real estate agents had Jessica searching for a better seller solution as she prepared to list her California home. Luckily, she found Home Bay and we helped her save over $60,000.00 on her California home sale! This is her story.


Melisa’s Story:

Though they only lived in their home for a year, Melisa and her family had an exciting reason to sell their beautiful El Cajon property. “My husband is about to get out of the Navy and we want to move back home to Florida – so we decided it was time!”

It would be the family’s first time selling a property, but rather than go the conventional route of hiring an agent, Melisa and her husband decided to consider more affordable alternatives. So how did the couple new to real estate sales end up with Home Bay?

Like a Good Neighbor, Home Bay is There:

Several months back, Melisa’s neighbor used Home Bay to sell his property. Melisa had noticed the Home Bay sign in his yard, so she decided to ask him about his experience. The helpful neighbor had nothing but positive things to say about his experience.

After finding out using Home Bay would afford them the opportunity to hang onto all the money they were anticipating spending on an agent commission, Melisa and her husband were excited to get started.

Professional Photos Paid Off:


Professional photos are a powerful sales tool that can really pay off for sellers, especially those looking to move their home quickly. Before listing, Melisa and her husband brought in a professional photographer to capture all the features of their home. Just days after the couple listed their property, a strong offer came in at just under asking price. The couple happily accepted it and headed into escrow.

Simplified Selling & Full-Service Support:

Selling a home can be stressful, especially if it’s your first time. There are literally hundreds of documents to deal with, tons of steps in the escrow process to navigate through, lots of legalese to decipher and a huge amount of money involved.

Despite all of those things, Melisa and her husband were able to sell the first home they ever purchased quickly and easily. That’s a testament to the quality of the software and service we offer to all of our clients.
