Coming Soon in 85254

Sometimes new business pops up in the most unlikely of places.   Open houses, while held for a seller to market a home, can also bring new faces and new business.  We meet new clients in the most unlikely of places, but when and where we might not know.  

 

About 3 months ago, I held an open house for another agent in my office.  The listing was a few blocks from my home, which is why I offered to assist.  I can speak intellligently on this area as I've lived in the area for almost 20 years.   I can name the schools, the municipalities, the attractions, and why this zip code is a great place to live.  

 

My intent has been to focus on this zip code, 85254, so the home listed for sale that I held open was the perfect place to spend a Saturday afternoon.   Armed with laptop, comparable sales, and treats for visitors, I was ready to go!

 

The open house produced a homeowner, among other leads, with a home currently listed for sale.  He was forthcoming, telling me it's listed for sale but with no offers.  He asked me to visit the home.  Usually in this situation I hesitate as he's already listed with another agent and I'd NEVER want to breach any agency relationship.  

 

Agreeing on  a date a week out, I visited the home after he contacted me AGAIN to see it.  It's a very nice home and I can tell that the energy efficient features and upgrades aren't being represented fully to gain enough market presence.  I offer what I would do differently instead of making any thoughts on the existing listing. 

 

Fast forward and the home did not sell and it has been off the market long enough to start the clock over. I'm excited to say I'll be assisting in the list and sale process for this beautiful home in 85254.   

 

Why is he listing with me and not another agent?    I wrote a blog about his home with an exterior photo only of what a nice home he has for sale.   I listed some of the features that make it an energy efficient home.  These weren't listed before. 

 

Stay tuned for the listing information!

Thank  you Gabe Sanders !  We don't have an agreement signed, but I was told over the phone that the blog is what sealed it for the seller.  Extra marketing doens't hurt! 

So true Chris Ann Cleland !  He really liked the fact that I wrote a blog about the home to market it to buyers.   

 

More info soon :)  Have a great day all!

Jan, glad you got this listing, and sad to see agents not supplying pertinent information that would help sell the home!   You Go girl!

Thank you Joan Cox .  Actually it's a coming soon - I just changed the heading.  Waiting to hear back from the sellers as one is not doing well.
