Ask almost anyone who has been following our local real estate market and they will tell you that the market is cooling. Since May, properties are taking a little longer to sell, sales prices are a little softer and more properties are seeing price reductions before they sell.
Here are 6 examples of changes in Real Estate listing team attitudes and behaviors that coincide with our slowing market. Note: regardless of market, these basic activities should be done by your real estate agent or agent team. If they aren’t, you might look for a more proactive realtor who is dedicated to your individual success.
When the market was decidedly in favor of the seller, listing agent teams who had several listings didn’t need to work as hard or as smart as they should have in order to get a home sold. Missing what can be seen as a small step in the marketing process didn’t cost the sale. When the market is in transition and listing agent teams don’t work diligently or methodically to get a home sold for the highest price, the likely result is a lower sales price or no sale at all. Sometimes bad habits are tough to break.
If you are looking for a Realtor to sell your home who has sold homes for high prices in up, down or sideway’s markets and is someone who will work diligently in your best interests, please reach out to me. I’d love to have a conversation with you to see how we might work together to sell your home. Thank you.
