Home Seller Tips: Sitting and Waiting is not a Selling Strategy

I received a call earlier this week from someone who already had a home for sale in Viera, Florida.  I explained to the caller that she had a real estate agent so she needed to communicate concerns with them.

She understood the reason why I could not intrude on her seller - agent relationship.

She did indicate that she may call me when her current listing expires.

Now here are a few items I did not say during the short call.

Just waiting until a listing expires is not a good strategy if a property is just sitting.

Most sellers have a timeline to sell their home.  Waiting does not support this.  Days on the market without a contract usually incurs additional costs.  These costs include the usual things like mortgage, insurance, association fees and the like but also includes the cost of a potentially lower price.  A home on the market an excessive number of days generally makes buyers wonder what is wrong.

Sellers, if your home is just sitting, there is a problem (or several).   These may include such things as preparation, pricing, presentation, accommodation or whatever. 

Sitting and waiting for the listing to expire is not a good strategy.

When I list your Viera, Florida home for sale there is no sitting and waiting.  We either get results or you are FREE to call on another Realtor and show me the door.
