Unique Properties

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 The Combs Company

Recently I listed a real log home on 40 acres in a rural part of our county. Last year I listed and sold a Williamsburg Village (three homes moved to a river location all built about 1800). Two years ago I listed and sold a one hundred year home with acreage and an old country store. I have other stories but I am not writing this to brag!!! In each case listed above and others not listed, agents had been called in before me to list the property but either refused, did not follow up, or in one case told the client to call me!

Unique property is not easy to sell I admit, but listing and selling cookie cutter homes would be a long boring day. Cookie cutter properties are easy to price and take no imagination to advertise. How do you comp out a 100 year old REAL log home? How do you comp out a village? I am listing a new home next week with a work shop and paint booth...and a pool? There is no comps for those properties. Because of unique properties Real Estate is exciting, challenging, and rewarding.

Unique properties give an agent the chance to obtain leads, adapt properties to the buyers needs, and meet people from different walks of life. You can list them for about 10-15 percent higher than your gut tells you because...well it is unique and will take a unique person to buy! This person may pay more for a property that "just calls their name"!

So I bring up the question, "why do agents not want to list unique properties"? If you are one of those agents just call me and I will be happy to list whatever comes my way! If you have a unique property to sell in Nash or Edgecombe County of NC, please call me!

Unique properties are always so neat to see.  I have sold a few.  You have to remember they are a little harder to sell.  You just to have to find the special buyer that wants it.
