7 More Ways To Keep Your Home From Selling

Real Estate Agent with Tierra Antigua Realty

Back in April I wrote my first blog, 10 Ways to Keep Your Home From Selling out of nervousness and to break the ice. To date it has been the most read blog I have written. Sometimes you just have to laugh with all the negative media. That has brought me to add seven more things sellers can do to keep their home from selling in Tucson’s real estate market. Here we go:

  1. Ignore the market, statistics, trends and reality in a Buyers Market. Insist on a set price and remain 90 to 180 days behind the market by refusing to reduce the price to a marketable level.

  • I love it!  I am going to forward this to some of my hard headed Sellers......When I tell some of my clients that the market is the market, I can't club someone over the head and bring them into the home..it's amazing...they say it's better to be the 2nd wife and the 3rd agent.... 
  • For Realtors, if you have a listing that expired, or they have no equity to pay you, you can tell them about OPS and we will go in and help them with your help as well. We we pay you a consulting fee for helping us help the owners. Even up to a 1% commission when it sells. Not a bad deal for something you would ordinarily walk away from.

    When a seller, or other agents, ask for my comments on their overpriced house, I just tell them "it's priced ahead of the market."  Let them figure it out.
