If your listing expired it must have been just another “also-ran”

How many of the listings that expired yesterday could be classified as “also-ran?”
In Brevard County, Florida the number of expired listings on July 12, 2011 was only nineteen but still they did not sell!

Most of us know what an “also-ran” is considered to be.  Horse racing is full of four legged also- ran and runner ups (just the first place “also-ran").  All participated but few win or place.

What makes a home an "also-ran?"

The most likely culprit - price.  Pricing is not a secret.

I recently read a CNN article on how to sell your house faster in a tough market.  Check it out.  A key point this article points out is carrying cost - the cost of holding that house another three or four months.  This is a legitimate consideration.

There are many other contributing causes to creating an "also-ran."  Preparation, accessibility, a willingness to negotiate and several others.

When you are ready to sell your Viera, Suntree or Rockledge, Florida home, call me (or email)  to discuss how we can get it done quickly in a way that will make you a satisfied customer who succeeded and did not not just participate!
