Every seller we talk to in the Leavenworth market wants a real estate agent who will be aggressive about selling their home or property. That makes sense to us. Year in and year out we have clients come to us and ask us to list their home because they have tried other agents in the past and been disappointed with the results.
Call us crazy, but we decided to give away some of our “super secret” recipe for success.
Pricing is Paramount
Putting the right price on a property is the most important thing you can do. No amount of marketing magic can solve a mispriced home. We routinely see homes in Leavenworth that are priced $100,000 more than the market value. Sometimes it’s much worse than that.
Without Great Photos, Your House is Invisible
A photo is worth a thousand words. In the Leavenworth real estate market, good photos are worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Over and over again we have seen the difference in the number of showings, the number of phone calls and emails we get for a property with great professional photos. If another agent has great photos on a listing, we get lots of calls on those listings too.
Easy to Show, Easy to Sell
The availability of the house for showings can sometimes make or break the listing. “Listing agent must be present at all showings” is the kiss of death and “24 hour notice for renters” can be pretty tricky too. Popular vacation rentals that are booked on the weekend sometimes can be a challenge to sell.
