Have you ever heard of this type of Listing?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

There is a new type of marketing going on to attract home sellers. The ad states that a seller can sell their home "without listing it". Close when you want. No MLS, no open houses and no days lost showing your home. Then states eliminate the hassles of selling your home traditionally.

 

As you scratch your head, many may be thing it sounds like a "pocket listing" to me. My second thought is why would any seller want this? Many ask if this is even legal?

 

The first thing is that some sellers are actually signing up for this. I have asked them why and the answer was often "it was quick", it was "easy" and they did not want to be hassled with selling. The first problem that pops up is that the sales price is often MUCH less than what market value is. They will tell you the lower price is the cost for convenience.

 

When a home seller calls, this is when i ask them if they want full price? Nearly all say yes. Many home seller do not know they can still get full price, still get full service and still reduce the "hassle" of selling their home by choosing the right agent. You do not need open houses.  You do not need  days on end of showings. You can close when you want by discussing that up front when listing. 

.

 

IN SUMMARY, the whole key to this issue is communication. Many sellers who sell for such cheap prices say "I wish i would have known." Well, here I am telling everyone so you do know there are options. DO not fall for sales gimmicks that over you low ball offers for your home. 

 

IN THE END I can list your home at what it is worth. Get you the best price in the quickest amount of time. Reduce stress and hassle for you. Get you to close when you want getting much more money in your pocket. 

  

I leave you with my infamous thoughts, 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.

"Sounds like the "We Buy Houses" kinda marketing, Scott.  And, like you point out, there is usually a price paid when sellers lose out on the open market.

Hi Scott- it's a shame that some people don't take the time to look at all of the options. They hear easy and quick and that's all they think about.

I had a client buy one of those "we buy ugly homes" franchises and we sat down and he told me all the tricks of that trade...

Happy Saturday Scott Godzyk

They also get what they pay for Nina Hollander and my goal is to reach them before they make that sad decision

It certainly has been a great place to get new leads when sellers can not sell Michael Jacobs . I do wish i could meet them before they decide.

It is strange Barbara Todaro as i say to many "when it sound stoo good to be true" It usally is. Short cuts and gimmicks dont work in real estate. Do it right the first time

It looks like both Michael J. Perry and i way to garner listings and some sell, most down and the others they try to convert. Sellers need to use caution

It started in MA with some big TV ads and spread North to NH Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 . I view it almost like a pocket isting if they are not advertsing for buyers or making the listing available to other agents in MLS. It is sad for the sellers though

Like i told one guy who called and asked me to match the offer to list they gave him, if you want to list, we want everyone to know the house is for sale. Discounts and a secret listing will not help sell his home Kathleen Daniels

Exactly Myrl Jeffcoat , it is like a pocket listing where no one comes then they make a low cash offer. The sellers need to beware

We have a local team doing that. I just dont get why sellers opt to sell for so much less in this market where i could get them a much higher cash offer and close just as quick.
