I was pondering about how to get HOME SELLERS back into this market to sell their homes.  Not everyone is underwater or refinanced themselves out of equity or have fallen on hard times.  There are many people waiting to get out there so how do we draw them out?

I say give them a place where they can get a FREE HOME EVALUATION on their home.  Give the information on How the Sell Their Homes for More Money in Less Time!  Give something that the Seller can sink their teeth into.  What about Find Out What the Home Down The Street Sold For?  We all want information and we don't always want to talk to someone to get it.  Offer them something free with no obligation to sell or for you to sell them.

This market is booming but we don't have enough homes to meet the demand.  So I'm just pondering on what to do to make a difference.  Maybe we just need to keep putting the word out and keep providing them with information they want and need to make a decision to sell.

Lisa, I just pulled some info from a radio program I listened to yesterday and wrote a blog about this last nite.  It comes from a variety of sources and is about this very topic--the stats and what people are going through in different areas of the country. I would get them hyper-local info as well. I shared this blogpost I wrote on Google, on my FB account and LinkedIn.

Spreading the word as the local expert and layering it with national expertise might be a way to go!

I'm with you we do need inventory right now; I think when we put the word out we need to let seller's know the inventory is low and we need more inventory for buyers. I wish you success have a great weekend.

Hi Lisa, Just getting the Word out there and offering those services that you mentioned above should generate some interest in some sellers. Keeping them up to date on the Market Trends and Conditions also should help them make that decision to sell. Inventory is low, but there are many who still need to sell for various reasons.
