springfield mo real estate: Pricing - The Key To A Successful Sale - 09/29/07 03:11 PM
With all the attention from the news media about the slowing market, it's time to focus on the positive side of sucessfully selling Springfield Mo real estate. 
Marketing a home today is all about pricing. 
I recently completed a comparative market analysis (CMA) for a Nixa Mo home in Christian County.  The seller is being transferred immediately and will have to rent, make double payments, maintain both dwellings, etc.  After discussing the details with the seller, I suggested that in order to be competitive with the 40+ homes on the market, we price it $10,000 lower.  Within 5 days, the home went … (12 comments)

springfield mo real estate: A Bird In Hand Equals More Than Two In The Bush! - 08/17/07 03:03 PM
We're working harder these days to inform the sellers of market conditions, This week, one of our builders marketing their home in Springfield Missouri, met with us to discuss market statistics and see what we are doing to sell his home.
After going over his CMA, he ask if we would be willing to help him trade for a home of lesser value.  Take his home off the market, let him trade, then list the home of lesser value.  He was willing to pay a reduced commission and promised to let us list the lower priced home.  Thinking about the end results, … (4 comments)

springfield mo real estate: NO! You Can't See That House! - 08/10/07 01:15 PM
Getting calls to show property has become a race to see if the buyer is really serious.  Questioning a buyer this week, I find out he is currently working with another realtor.  He's tried to call her several times without receiving a call back, so he calls me.  This is a first time home buyer wanting Springfield Mo real estate.  The home he calls on is located in Nixa, Mo.
After telling him about the location of the home, he still wants to see it.  We have just reduced it to $147,700.  It's a bank repo, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 car garage … (23 comments)

springfield mo real estate: One Man's Left Over - Another's Treasure - 08/05/07 11:58 AM
 
Among the listings we currently have, a new listing is a Springfield bank repo, located on a major street, complete with a house full of STUFF!  The normal bank repo is usually empty - this is actually the first home we've helped clean out.
According to the bank, photos must be taken before and after the home is cleaned out.  For those of you that don't handle repo's, the bank's policy expects the home to be cleaned out,  The policy of  this particular bank, all property must be placed outside on the front lawn, photo's taken, then the property must stay outside for a … (7 comments)

springfield mo real estate: The Perils of Selling Real Estate - 08/01/07 02:27 PM
This past weekend, my hubby and I spent an afternoon cleaning up loose ends and decided to preview 2 homes we are getting ready to market, both being bank repo's. 
The first home we had to replace the front door locks with the proper key locks by sawing off the old ones.  Sounds really bad on a quiet afternoon; brings all the neighbors out to see who is breaking into a house.  To my surprise, one neighbor walked over to see if we had purchased the home.  We quickly let them know we were real estate agents and they seem satisfied.
Once we … (9 comments)

springfield mo real estate: A New Admirer of Brian Buffini - Part 3 - 06/22/07 03:20 PM
 
Taking a class on 100 Days to Greatness with Brian Buffini has become very difficult.  Keeping up the normal routine, selling Springfield Mo real estate and trying to change our work habits is not easy.  Closing on a home took priority over class this week.  Not only did I miss class, the rest of the team wasn't there either.
One of our daily tasks is to write thank you notes to our past clients.  Right now,  approximately 100 notes behind, I can not see how I can maintain this pace.  To my surprise, my assistant is currently on track with her notes and … (17 comments)
