2 – Don’t call the Realtor with qualified buyers back for nine hours.
3 – Don’t allow the house to be shown until after 5pm.
The above are two reasons that unrepresented sellers frequently have a harder time selling their properties. The reason is simple – the sellers work during the day. What did we, the Realtor and the buyers do? Moved on to the other seven competing listings … with at least seven more to go. The property is going to have to be mighty special and unique to make us alter our schedules.
In a buyers’ market (which we’re in, if you didn’t know) – I advise my sellers to do (almost) whatever it takes to get buyers through their house. You just never know when the “right” buyer is going to walk through the door.
At some point, one must ask – how much is my time worth?
1 – Overprice it.
