This post is short, sweet and presents a message I have come to live by... Sometimes I decline a listing.
When I was a rookie agent with a different brokerage I felt the broker wanted listings regardless if they would sell or not. I guess that is the reality of being an owner broker.
As an inexperienced agent I worked to get every listing I could possibly win.
I worked very hard...open houses, signs, mailings, blogs, print advertising, etc. sometimes with very little chance of selling. Many of these sellers were unrealistic and understood the chance of a buyer coming along was remote.
Now, ten years later, I have a much different (and more successful) approach.
I will take a listing when the sellers are a bit more optimistic than I am as long as they agree to re-look at the price in thirty days if have no offers.
This is my 30-10-1 rule. Basically it means if your home is listed for 30 days, has less than
10 showings and not one offer, then the price is an issue.
A price reduction is not a bad thing....however, multiple price reductions can send a different signal (seller desperate, something wrong with house).
This is a great time to sell your home as prices are rising and inventory is low. Call me and lets talk about selling your Viera home.
List with me and I guarantee you can have a reasonable expectation of success.
