Dear Expired Seller,
Well, first, don't be so quick to give up.
Quick you say?! You have been on the market for six long months with nothing, not a bite...not a nibble. Understood.
We need to first understand what could have gone wrong...if anything. We first look at your home and your neighborhood comps to find out where you are priced at. What are you talking about you may be asking me at this point? If you are...then stop right there...that may be the actual issue. If you haven't had a serious discussion about pricing and where your home is placed market wise for example a Comparative Market Analysis, then you very well may be priced too high for your area.
Perhaps that isn't the case. Maybe you have had several price drops but all you heard was crickets. No showings. If you aren't getting any showings...well first, back to step one. Again, if the price is right then it may be the marketing. Your agent said that putting your home in the MLS (multiple listing service) would likely sell the home. They told you that pricing was everything and the MLS and the yard sign was really all they needed. They also showed your house on Realtor.com. You saw the four pictures yourself. Well...ok. I must tell you that most Realtors® associated with the National Association of Realtors® or NAR get automatic exposure on Realtor.com with their listings. It's a pull from the associated MLSs and shows the basic information such as Brokerage, price and includes the first four pictures that the Realtor® has taken of your home. Buyers in today's market enjoy lots of pictures and descriptions of the home to kind of get an idea if they would like to go and see it. With showcase listings on Realtor.com it allows me to put up to 25 photos and a video and Virtual Tour of your home and generally, the more photos of the listing, the higher on top the listing shows. Do you know what other marketing has been done? Any Realbird, Trulia, Real Estate Shows? No? Well..that could be the issue. With trying to sell Guadalupe Real Estate, marketing is an important part of giving your home the maximum exposure it needs to attract as many buyers as possible.
Did your Realtor® do any type of other internet marketing such as blogging on Active Rain, Trulia or a Wordpress site? What's blogging? Ahhhh...well Dear Expired seller....we may have just found the issue. Are you ready to get your home Sold? Give me a call at 210-807-0819 or visit my website at www.findurwayhome.com and we will get you set right up! Looking forward to hearing from you!
