Sometimes sellers look at you when you ask them if they have any idea why their home didn’t sell? They answer “NO, not really!” The other agent just wasn’t aggressive enough! They didn’t do enough open homes or advertise everyday! So why do listings expire! Let’s see: No upgrades and over priced, dirty homes and filthy floors, sticking doors, funky colors or none at all, barking dogs and hissing pets, cats that sharpen claws on rug, rotted wood, mildewed walls, curb appeal missing, broken walk, dated lighting with tarnished brass, un-cut grass, purple shutters, lime green walls, dated wall paper, leaky spigots, three foot weeds, no lawn at all, leaves not blown, sagging floors, threadbare carpets, burnt out lights, musty smells, leaky pipes, no hot water, garage door won’t work, fogged up windows and broken glass, sump pump is broken, dirty toilets, handprints on walls, bales of newspapers and old magazines, border paper in every room, avocado fixtures, dirty oven, AC not working, missing shingles on the roof, rotting trees ready to fall, shaky deck not bolted or flashed, dripping faucets, fireplace with a damp creosote smell, light switches not working, powers off, ants in kitchen, webs on wall, fleas in basement, soiled laundry airing out, dishes in sink, piled high, leaks in ceiling, missing grout, missing shingles on the roof, and rusting gutters dripping goop! No showing in morning and there’s no lockbox, it’s appointment only, but no morning shows …Oh, and before I forget do not cross the police line!
