I am so frustrated with sellers who don't get it. Or is it Realtors? The home is listed before the bathroom remodels are done (they were empty, with bathtubs and sinks sitting around--we didn't buy it.) The home is listed with no counters in yet. Why not wait until they are finished and looking great? The home is listed before the painting is done. Who picked out those colors???
Everybody knows that the first couple of weeks generate the most interest. So then why not have the home looking the best it can possibly be from day one? I have had my staged homes sell in 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, and ... days. They were ready to be photographed and put on the Internet. They were ready for buyers to come in and appreciate all they had to offer because those special features were highlighted. They looked beautiful, and the buyers bought them.
I just don't get why homes are listed before they are ready. Am I missing something?
