clarks summit pa homes for sale: Sellers In Clarks Summit Pa - Be Careful Talking To Buyers Without Your Realtor - 03/30/12 10:59 AM
When it comes time to market your home sellers should consider that being there when the home is shown is not a good idea.

In my experience I've seen sellers try to get friendly with prospective buyers.  Perhaps they feel if they appear to be friendly people it might prompt an offer on their home.

Buyers will look for "desperation". A sick parent and you are relocating.  A job change and you … (2 comments)

clarks summit pa homes for sale: Clarks Summit Pa - Buyers Tour Homes With The Agent Who Will Write Your Offer - 03/12/12 07:34 AM
In this day and age many buyers want access to information and homes IMMEDIATELY.  They are so accustomed to instant gratification that bending the rules seems to justify their quest for satisfaction.

In real estate we have very specific responsibilities as agents.  We ALL represent the seller UNTIL a buyer formally selects us to represent their interests exclusively.  That's known as a BUYERS AGENT.

Buyers think nothing of calling a listing agent or another agent in the same office and telling a little white lie to get access to a home on THEIR schedule. What the buyer fails to … (0 comments)

If you are contemplating selling your home in Clarks Summit Pa, the two of the most important rooms a buyer considers is the kitchen and the bathroom.  Fiberglass tubs and showers are very popular and used for years to update a bathroom.

Over time they get "tired" looking with stains that are impossible to remove.  Before undertaking a huge re-fit in your bathroom consider having your tub or shower refinished.

Fellow Realtor Joanne Crum wrote this interesting article with before and after pictures of fiberglass refinishing.

clarks summit pa homes for sale: Scranton Pa Homes For Sale - Sellers Attend To Those Little Details - 03/09/12 09:13 AM
Here is an interesting article posted by Real Estate professional Gene Mundt with some great advice. When preparing your home for sale in Scranton Pa staging is critical before your first showing.
 
Pay attention to little details. One area most sellers over look is odor. Cooking, pets, smoking, and some room deodorizers create an unpleasant atmosphere.
 
If a buyer is turned off by an unusual odor it could be the difference between sale and NO SALE.
 
 
 
Is that the smell of sweet success in your home ...

clarks summit pa homes for sale: Clarks Summit Pa - Sellers Don't Blow A Potential Sale - 03/04/12 06:42 AM
It takes a lot of planning to set up a tour of 7, 8 or 9 homes for a buyer.  As agents we structure our showings in a logical pattern.  Starting at the furthest point and coming back to our starting point.

Lo and behold the homeowner in the middle of our tour cannot accommodate the showing because of a baby's nap or some other known scheduling issue.

It's impossible to rearrange 7 other homeowners to suit just one.  You may find your home is eliminated from the tour and possibly from a potential sale.
I'm often amazed at … (1 comments)
