What do you say when a Home Seller tells you they do not want the neighbors to know their Manchester NH area home is for sale. I asked WHY? They told me they do not get a long and they are the reason they are moving.
There was more to the story and I pondered if I really wanted to know it. In the mean time it was my job to tell them why we use for sale signs on the front line. Basically we want the whole world to know their home is for sale. The more people that know, the more potential buyers there is. The more potential buyers means more potential offers.
Mr. Seller was not having it. He told me that another agent was suppose to list the home but insisted on a sign. They walked away because the seller refused a sign. That was extreme and I knew I can sell this home. I did accept this listing and no, we did not put a sign. The funny part is once the home is put in MLS, it syndicates into Zillow and every other real estate site. That means the neighbor most likely will know. And... of they dont see an ad, they will see the many buyers who I start showing the home to.
The story had a happy ending, I got 3 offers in 2 days. The neighbor did come over during one of the showings and asked abut an open house. Well we sold before an opon house, so that story will wait for a part 2.
In the end my job was to let the seller know the pros an con of their choices. They understood and I did what they wanted. They were happy with my choice and even more happy i sold the home.
Perhaps the MOST IMPORTANT message is to share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
