How many times have you sold the same house?

Real Estate Agent with Sandpoint Realty SP36782

Its kind of fun being in real estate for along time and becoming the family realtor.  You start off with one couple, who refer you over to their brother sister, parents, cousins and you eventually sell a house to everyone in the family.  It gets even more exciting when each of those lives you touched come back to you to sell it again and then their buyers use you to sell when its time for a change.  

So how many times can you sell a house?  I guess it depends on how long you are in real estate and how well you service your clients and keep in touch.  My record is 5 so far.  Is there a name for realtors that keep selling the same house to new generations?

What names can you think of?  Post your comments below.

Hello Rain - hmm - maybe a repeat defender of the American real estate dream. 

I  can recall a particularly memorable experience of representing some first-time buyers buy a condo and then representing them as first-time home sellers.  The  buyer  who bought that property was relocating to our area and was represented by an agent and when that buyer was transferred to another location a few years later, she contacted me(who had been sending her my area real estate updates in the mail.  So I listed and sold this same property once again.  The incredible thing - that new buyer was also relocating to the area and was represented by that same agent.  Kinda funny, huh?

That is kinda funny. Good job. It is always amazing when it happens.  Its really fun when you still have the pictures and see the transformations of the house over the years.

I've only sold the same house twice so far. I've done that several times though. Can I add those all up?

I have sold the same house twice several times! I have a chance to sell a few more of them this year. It is harder to sell the same home more than once here, because so many of our buyers are out state. They come here to retire and don't sell the house, or sell it once for another one here

If you want to stand out put on a red dress!

I've sold a handful of homes twice, once on the buyer side, then selling it later. I've also listed the same house twice, representing the seller first, then once again representing the buyer on that transaction who is now the seller.

I've represented a buyer, then her inlaws as listing agent, then her again as a seller and a repeat buyer. It's great when they put their trust in you year after year.
