To this day I remember the stress of trying to make the home viewing-worthy, of sublimating my own nature and living habits to the greater good of attracting a buyer.
Every waking moment was spent wondering whether I’d get my price, how long it might take to see an offer, whether we’d get an offer at all, whether anyone ever would even walk in to look at the house.
I’m telling you ”¦ it was the longest five days of my life.
Selling a house is stressful; trying to see a house without success is stressful by an order of magnitude. Yet determining why a house didn’t sell usually is a fairly easy exercise.
Cynical readers will think, “he’s going to say it’s always the price.” It isn’t always the price ”“ only about 90 percent of the time.
About two weeks ago, I launched a new website that is unique to the Phoenix real estate market ”“ ExpiredtoSoldAZ.com. This website, unlike nearly every other real estate site out there, is dedicated solely to sellers and getting homes sold.
While the name itself references that frustrating situation where a listing expired without a sale, the scope of the site isn’t limited to these unfortunate souls. It’s a place where sellers can get helpful tips about selling, staging and marketing ”¦ and, oh by the way, my entire listing marketing plan also is there for the whole world wide web to see.
If you’ve had your home on the market without success, or if you’re thinking of putting your home on the market, it’s well worth the click to see what’s going on at ExpiredtoSoldAZ.com.
It could just mean the difference between listing your home and getting it sold.
