Languish Anguish...kiss stale listings GOODBYE!

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Inland Empire 77217

As Real Estate professionals- there IS something we can do to help this market move along quicker than it is currently. Are you currently working with UNMOTIVATED SELLERS? If so... you may be part of the PROBLEM rather than the SOLUTION.

I suggest having a meeting with all of your sellers and taking their pulse on motivation. If they don't care whether or not their home sells: RUN THE OTHER WAY!

We are confusing and frustrating ready, able and willing BUYERS by the gross overage of over-priced homes on the market. BUYER'S ARE THE KEY TO UNLOCK THE DOOR OF THIS CURRENT MARKET.

Many of the homes listed are LANGUISHING which is creating AGUISHING market conditions.

We need to confidently educate/show our sellers that there home is only worth what an actual buyer is willing to pay.

SHOW them their odds of selling, CURRENT absorption rates, and give them the GREAT NEWS that if they PRICE THEIR HOME RIGHT they will be one of the LUCKY ONES who get to take FULL ADVANTAGE of the buy side of this market.

With TODAY'S interest rates...the HUGE amounts of money you save over the life of the loan is FAR BETTER than ANY GOVERNMNET TAX REBATE of the is TRULY worth showing your sellers what a 3.99% to 4.875% interest rate will save them on their NEXT home.

SHOW them the statistics, facts, give them HOPE that they are FAR BETTER OFF to play "THE PRICE IS RIGHT" and be able to MOVE on rather than being in the majority who are claiming to be VICTIMS of this market.

YES... your home will SELL when it is PRICED Realtor's we all need to wrap our heads around turning down OVER-PRICED LISTINGS to create a better FLOW in the marketplace. I suggest a face to face meeting with every current listing and re-evaluate the motivation of the seller...the key is to create MOVEMENT in the MARKET...

Having the guts to cut your losses after a seller won't wake up the the fact is applaudable. More sellers need this experience. If that are not going to listen to the truth, let someone else tell them the lies.

True words!!!  There is a homeowner in our neighborhood who has gone through every REALTOR in the area!  We told him a year ago what the price should be when we were the first to list the no avail.  He is now on REALTOR #4, and the price remains up there.  Like I tell my sellers, I don't take listings just to put a sign in the yard.....I sell homes!!!
