Listing appointments

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Trombley Real Estate

Yea! Yes. Listing appointments.

i am of course excited. I have booked a listing appointment.

What you have done in your past will pay off.

I received an email asking me if I would like to help sell a home. Well, OK I was over there about 3 months ago and gave them a long laundry list of what it would take to make their home marketable for the best return.

I am so excited to go back and see what they have completed and help them sell their home.

Regardless of what the media is saying out there. People still need a place to live. They need a roof over their heads. Interest rates could not be better and home prices are a great value. I know others would still like to see the price come down. I myself would like to see them go up. I want to see the equity in my home increase and not decrease.

Either way, I am excited about the listing. I am hoping it will be under contract in less than 60 days so they can move on with their lives. Isn't that what it is about. Own a place make some equity and move on?

You're absolutely right. No matter what the market conditions, people still need a place to live.  People still need to sell their homes.

This is really great that they called you after they had done the things on your list.  That meant they had faith in you and what you were all about.  I hope you got the listing!

How great that they called back after a few months!  Hopefully they did at least some of the things you suggested and the house is ready for the market!

Yes Renae now I am running across that they are wanting to wait to see the stimulus package and how it will affect them.
