Was the first April Fool a FSBO? After all, we all look forward to the Spring Market.
I believe the April Fool FSBO demonstrates the value of the many Real Estate professions!
Here are the top ten indications that the first April Fool getting ready for the spring market was, in fact, a FSBO
#10 -- I am not updating anything -- the buyer can do that! Brass and wallpaper are just fine!
#9 -- Why should I have to finish all of the repairs? Let the buyer get the repairs done. They can finish it their way!
#8 -- The carpet is fine! They may like BLUE! We like Blue!
#7 -- If I take the curtains down from around the closets, I'll have to put up new closet doors. The buyer can take it just the way it is! It's always worked for us, and we are happy to leave the draperies (for a price)
#6 -- I don't need a Realtor! Every home in here sells for $200,000 give or take a few dollars. I can simply price my house at $250,000! THEN I HAVE ROOM TO NEGOTIATE!
#5 -- I don't need a Realtor! I have superb negotiation skills. I will walk every buyer through myself in great detail pointing out how much this home was just perfect for us and all the fun times we have had here! They'll enjoy that!
#4 -- When the buyer sees just how much storage this house has, they'll be eager to make an offer!
#3 -- Buyers want to see a lived-in-look, so that they can see how they can live! This photo really shows how "OPEN" our floor plan is. You can see how we live from every part of the house
#2 -- The Master bedroom is the perfect place to show the buyer they do not need to join a gym! Why the excercise equipment fits just fine in the master and there really is no other place it could possible fit. We'll let them know that!
AND, THE #1 REASON THE FIRST APRIL FOOL MAY HAVE BEEN A FSBO --
#1 -- Having photo's of the property on the Internet is just a bunch of hype. People want to see the real thing -- photos won't pull in propestive buyers for showing, and if so, these here are good enough! Besides, my for sale sign will catch their attention!
