You want to sell your house, mansion or plot real badly but cannot? There must be something you are doing wrong which seems to be eluding your buyer’s attention. Is it because your house has not had a fresh coat of paint? Is your lawn substantially weed and insect infested? Are your windows broken? Or it could be that you are not properly marketing your property and selling yourself to your potential buyer.
There are a couple of times when real estate marketing goes bust. An example of such cases is one with real estate for sale agent Vince Romano, who was on the brink of a major breakthrough if he had just applied some paint on his property.
The real estate for sale which is a Chicago suburban single family house was right in the money had it not been for the real estate owner’s teenage children’s graffiti riddled rooms and the basement.
“It looks phenomenal online. I had 17 or 18 showings in the first two months,” Romano said. “But buyers – and often it’s subconscious – actually aren’t good at overlooking even superficial flaws, particularly if those flaws so boldly announce they’ll need a redo.”
Here are some of the most insightful tips to help house seller’s market themselves better:
1. It has to be properly priced
Katya Dennis, a Californian real estate for sale agent says “I always tell my sellers, you can never price a house too low, because the market will take care of it.”
She had recently listed a real estate for sale at about $535,000 even though it was originally about $25,000 higher. According to her, a lower price attracted quick and competing bids.
2. Apply a fresh sales strategy
A fellow house seller Leis, shares her line of experience to everyone else who have been caught off guard by rip off real estate for sale agents.
She had an infuriated client who had acquired a listing from another agent of a 5,500-square-foot house that had been in the market for a year and a half.
Later she placed an ad in the newspaper which did not give out any practical details as such except for the ad containing “private compound”, “two separately deeded parcels, full tennis court.”
Once this was done, she later got several phone calls and was told that she had some of the finest strategies that they were looking for.
3. Do not quarrel with the market
A senior couple Tom and Marge Edge’s beachside real estate for sale was in the market for four until it was finally sold for a low priced listing than they had originally placed.
It was hard for them to accept the loss as they had all kinds of realtors working with them. Eventually, they accepted defeat and moved to a smaller house.
