Yardley, Newtown, Bucks County sellers, for goodness sake, let the agents in!
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pxZw_i46ng[/youtube]My most recent video rant, about sellers who make it difficult to show their home.
Had a buyer today, who is very motivated. House is sold, and they need to find a home in Yardley, Newtown or close by, by the end of March. Had 7 houses to show them today.
Sellers of 4 houses of the 7, decided that this was a bad weekend, bad time, bad morning, bad afternoon, bad month….you get the idea. Here is a memo to sellers. No one will buy your house, unless they are allowed in to see it. I realize that it is not fun, to sell your house. Why not price it right, make sure it shows as well as possible, improve the condition, wherever possible, and encourage showings. That way, you won’t prolong the agony.
As a postscript, to my video rant, the buyers did find something they liked, and we wrote an offer. To the 4 sellers who were too busy, they lost a chance with a very motivated, and realistic buyer. Is it any wonder that homes are often on the market for months and months and months.
As always, let me know your thoughts.Continue Reading > Add a Comment
