Missed Connection: Us and Selling Your Home

CrowdsMissed Connection:  Us and Selling Your Home

Us:  Experienced Real Estate Team who specializes in selling the homes that didn't sell the first time!

You:  A motivated Warren County home seller who still wants to sell their home after a disappointing series of relationships with other agents.  You were wooed and left at the altar, still owning that home!  You can't move on with your life until that major task is accomplished. 

When:  It happens all the time.  Not every home sells the first time, nor quickly, especially if there's something "challenging" about your home.  Maybe that corner lot you love doesn't suit everyone.  That school district that used to be highly regarded is now out of favor.  That busy road that's "too close" to your home!  There are dozens of factors that influence the ability to sell a home.

How:  All we ask for is your time.  An initial consultation.  No cost, no hassle, no pressure.  If you like what you hear, we can discuss further what's needed to put us to work for you.  But know this, we will not tell you something just to win your favor.  No inflated "here's the price we can get for your home".  No "Buyers won't care about that cigarette smoke smell".  We'll be tactful, but truthful.

Part of our specialty is reviewing your previous attempts to sell. 

WHY didn't your home sell? 

Sometimes it's marketing (or the lack of it). 

Sometimes it's price

Sometimes there is something very specific about the home that CAN be corrected.  (Those burgundy carpets or decorative wallpaper may be turning off the buyers). 

Sometimes your agent may have done everything right, you just needed to give them more time.  If there are months and months of inventory on the market, expecting your agent to sell within 90 days and still get you top dollar just may not be feasible.

So if you're thinking about putting your home back on the market, why not make a connection with The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite?  We've got plenty of success selling homes that didn't sell the first time.  References available upon request!

Anita, Thanks!  We run through the reasons for no sale every Expired, and when we get the opportunity for a new to market listing, we're going through the same mental checklist.  What are the barriers to sale?  Always good to have that discussion with the sellers for a realistic understanding of the home and the market.

Roger, Thanks for bringing Ilene along!  You know we're stoked to see Tish and Cheeky Assistant back!!

This is definitely a us vs them situation.  Us being the start team of Bill and Liz Spear, and them being the ones who couldn't get it done.  We know you guys will.

Christine, It's the way we always work!  Let's see if there's a way for us to help.  Sometimes it's not a good fit, most times it is :)

Jane, We're not 100% successful, but we're pretty close as long as the sellers are receptive and patient.  Sometimes they're not, and that makes it tough for any agent.

Bliz - Terrific marketing piece here. We too do not try to buy our listings. It's not worth it to both parties. We want to sell the home but we have to be realistic or it's a waste of time and marketing for both of us...

Lisa and Bob, It's something that evolved a bit for us over time, that realization that not ever listing is a good listing.  If it can't be sold, then it's only value is buyer bait, and that just doesn't fit our business and personal philosophies :)

What a great way to present your approach to getting someone's home sold!  To the point but not rude or pushy.  I loved you including that the former agent may have done everything right!  That sounds so much more professional than slamming the competition!

Sherri, If there's something obvious that was done wrong with the previous listing, we need to address it.  For an expired, our review starts with the previous MLS listings for clues as to what might be done better to sell the home.  Sometimes there's some pretty blaring issues, other times, the agent was good, just bad luck to have not sold.  In our area, days on market are often long, and patience is needed.  If the seller's patience runs out before the buyer shows up, well the agent will usually get the blame.  We've had it happen to us, and probably will again despite all best efforts to the contrary.

Real estate isn't an exact science.  Why a home doesn't sale (unless it's a real dog) might be _________ (fill in the blanks) as your post most accurately does.  Consulting with sellers who have not been properly filled in is where you come in!!

Carla, True!  Some science, some art and to be frank, some luck.  There HAS to a buyer looking that matches up with a particular home.  If there isn't, no amount of marketing and skill is going to create a sale.
