Bethesda Homes for Sale?
I was trying to figure out why this one listing was not showing up on my Diverse Solutions IDX and their support asked if the seller had allowed Internet publication. I was shocked to find that in fact this listing in Bethesda, in a prime neighborhood that is sought after, had chosen to be INVISIBLE on the Internet to buyers. DNP stands for Do Not Publish
Do not publish. Or in other words do not sell! Since sellers have to sign off on the listing and presumably go look for their listings on the Internet, I'm assuming they are aware they are found on no major sites. This is a limited service brokerage, but did the sellers really want this much limitation?
Then I looked through at the rest of the listing. These are the remarks that have remained unchanged in 175 days:
Of course the price has changed. The original price could never be sustained but moreover, the current price is still wrong.
And these mistakes have led to the inevitable 175 days on market....
What not to do is so evident throughout the listing but still these sellers persist and all because they think they are saving money by using this company instead of a more experienced broker, willing to do what it takes to have a listing marketed properly and completely VISIBLE to the Internet shoppers.
We have no idea where buyers come from but many are relocating here from other parts of the country. They certainly won't have this home on their Bethesda real estate list when they arrive to look at homes... Heck, they'll never even know it was out there!
