Do You Know a Spinster? Desperate Homes for Sale in Collin County, McKinney, Allen, Frisco TX
I see Desperate Houses all the time.
Old Maids languishing on the market, rarely getting showings or offers. After months listed on the MLS, they start to look pretty desperate. Are they destined to remain without a buyer . . . forever?
Here are just a few of the laments heard from Desperate Houses:
DH: I want a relationship!
That's what we all want for you -- Buyers who show some interest, who think you're special. But, if you haven't done what it takes to prepare for showings, maximize your curb appeal, and get the price right, then frankly, you're out of your league.
DH: I used to get lots of attention. No one ever looks at me anymore!
You should probably get a little work done. Sure, you were great looking in your day -- back when the builder had you in good shape. But after you were purchased, you didn't keep yourself up. Who cares if you have a great personality? In the world of home sales, it's all about looks.
DH: My clock's ticking!
Tick, tick tick . . . After several months on the market, buyers aren't knocking on your door anymore and you've missed your window of opportunity. Sellers can't afford to miss out on their listing's prime time to sell. A house needs to be show-ready with marketing in place from Day 1.
DH: My pics-appeal is completely non-existent.
This is not your fault! Fortunately, there is something you can do about it! Your previous agent wooed you with talk of a sale and then never followed through with the least bit of marketing or ANY photos in MLS. This always results in a stigma we call "no showings" and high Cumulative Days On Market (CDOM) always follows. Surely, Sellers never thought this could happen to them. Talk with a reliable agent who will do the job right.
DH: Does all this time on the market make my CDOM look fat?
Yes. Yes, it does.
DH: How can I get a commitment?
Sometimes houses look like they've got it going on. They attract Buyers at first, but just can't get anyone to commit. Many things could be a factor in this scenario.
It could be . . . pet odor. It could be that the price of commitment is just too high. You need professional help in this situation --- a respectable real estate professional will tell you the truth so you can get the help you need.
DH: I want that piece of paper that makes it official.
A fairy-tale closing is what every home seller dreams of. I can help make that happen for you.
