Are you looking at the expireds in your local MLS? Now is the time like no other any time of the year to be checking them out. Saturday, January 2, I decided to login to MLS to see what was happening. Much to my suprise there were 215 expireds in one day.
Normally, the largest amount of expireds occur on the last day of the month so I had checked the last day of December. There had been some expireds (no more than usual).
I look at this as my New Year's Gift from the real estate Gods. Working expireds has always been fun for me. I definitely like being the second or third agent, because I have found that sellers are more willing to listen to advice on pricing etc.
I have been going through the listings that interest me. So far I have 5 strong leads and am still going through my list.
The next thing I have done is go back and pull up all the expireds from November 1. I am sure you have all been told by sellers that they were going to wait until after the holidays to put their house back on the market. Well guess what??? It is now 'after the holidays'. My philosophy in real estate has always been "Strike while the iron is hot!!!"
So, go check out your MLS for expireds and have fun. Happy New Year!!!
