A war of words and timing are brewing. An increase of "Coming Soon" signs dots the city. But why? Are all these people thinking of listing their home but just were not ready for showings? All you have to do is call the number on the sign to see a pattern on some of these Manchester NH area homes For Sale.
Them masters of Real Estate would always say you only have one chance to be a new listing. There is no doubt new listings get a push of new viewings and showings. So is that time wasted if a buyer sees a sign. Wants to see the home but can not. The answer is confusing as it depends who you are.
Lets take a home down the street. Coming soon popped up. I looked it up in MLS and nothing. I called the sign as I have a buyer who wants to live in my area. No showings for 2 weeks I was told. Passing it on to my buyer they were sad an confused. Then the next day I am driving by and see people viewing the home. I call in excitement to get my buyer in but no, there is no showings for 13 days i am told. Wait a minute, I saw a showing... The answer crickets....
COme to find out my buyer knows the seller and they see each other at the grocery store. They buyer asks about how much more time they will need to let buyers in. The sellers say they are ready. Wait, what? The buyer asks about coming soon and telling the seller theor agent was told they could not get in for 2 weeks.... The seller knows nothing about it. They have showings they said. Now we are all confused.
Fast forward a couple of days and out for a walk, I walk by the home and there is the listing agent showing the home. I walk up and ask when i can get in. Not recognizing me they said anytime. When told that I would bring my buyer in an hour, the gig was up. SO they will show buyers without agents the home and start showings with buyer agents two weeks later? Did the seller know? It seems not. Does this help or hurt the seller? Well it is not hard to think limiting showings hurts the seller well helping those who listed it. I did voice my demay and did indeed forward the info to my buyers who no doubt will see the seller again. Why would they list knowing all interested buyers would not get to see their home asked the buyer. Followed by doesn't more buyers equal more offers which can equal a higher sales price? Yes indeed to all.
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.
