Pulling Strings to Sell Your House

In a toy store recently I observed folks (all adults) walk by a display of toy characters, and as if by compulsion, pull the string to hear the toy "speak."

Another person would come along, pull the string, listen to the same phrase…over and over again. 

When I began writing this my point was going to be how I will not just tell a prospective seller the same thing as the last real estate agentNo memorized response awaiting the pull.

But then I realized that while interviewing a Realtor to sell your house you may actually find a couple of Realtors who tell you the same thing.  And that is not necessarily a bad thing!

There will may be more than one that speaks the same words, perhaps differently, but the meaning is the same.

If they tell you
  • It is a buyers market.
  • Staging is important to getting the best price for your home!
  • Your price should be XXX to be competitive (and realistic).
  • Suggest a pre-listing inspection if your home is not newer construction.
  • Offer hints about curb appeal and exterior appearance.
  • Know what homes in your neighborhood have SOLD for recently.
  • Know that more than 85% of buyers use the Internet and market on the Internet!
Then you have a dilemma as you have a couple of reasonable choices…Now, flip the coin.
