Some Home Sellers are wishing Santa will bring them a Home buyer for Christmas, but the reality is that many of these homes may not sell. Some homes listed Listed For Sale will have their dreams come true, but to be sure, sellers should not leave It up to chance and check out these TOP 10 things reasons Home Sellers may get coal instead.


THE TOP 10 GIFTS Home Sellers SEEK

1. They may get coal because they hired Aunt Betty to list their home who works in Real Estate "on the side"

2. They may get coal because they hired some out of town agent they saw on TV,

3. They may get coal because they didn't bother to clean, didn't feel like removing the clutter.

4. They may get coal because they did not let buyers in when they wanted to see the home.

5. They may get coal because they chose the agent that gave them the highest value, one way over what any neighbors houses have sold for.

6. They may get coal because their agent did not enter a complete listing in MLS, did not put in a realistic description and failed to use plenty of good photos showing off it's special features.

7. They may get coal because they did not fix anything they should and the screen door still hangs off its hinges

8. They may get coal because all those times the pet "did their business" on the carpet are still there,

9. They may get coal because "it was too soon" to accept that almost full price offer we got right after listing and here we are 6 months later with no other offers.

10. They may get coal because they demand to be home for every showing and follow the buyer around as they look at the home.

I'm sure this is also the list you can provide them on "How to avoid Coal in your stocking." You will be with them during and after the sale.

Hi Scott- if sellers want to sell their house and not end up with coal in their stockings, they'd better read these tips and also hire Scott Godzyk!

Hi Scott:

Clever way to present the reasons sellers may be disappointed. If they hire you, coal will never even be a consideration.
