Maybe I Hired the Wrong Realtor?

 Have you ever heard that before? Maybe you have said that before or are saying that now!!

Well, let me ask you a question.  If you list your car for sale, in the newspaper or online, is it the newspaper’s fault if it does not sell?  OR is it because the car is in bad condition, or maybe the price is too high, or simply no one happens to be looking for a 1971 Datsun?

Maybe selling your home is similar. Does your home need a little attention to minor details? Can you spruce up its appearance to make it look its best?  Maybe you are on a busy highway, in a tightly packed subdivision, have a large yard that needs a lot of garden work or you have asbestos in your home. Perhaps you are sitting on the banks of a river, or in a flood plain, or in an area designated for windmills.  Another thing to take into consideration is, the type and number of buyers out there looking for a home just like yours.  Perhaps the price is too high. Maybe the price point dictates a certain income bracket.
There are many reasons your home may not be selling. This is why it good to review all these things with your agent before listing to sell. It is possible to hire the wrong agent. It could be agent-related, but chances are one of these other factors are stopping your home from selling. With a good marketing program and the right agent, a home will sell when it is priced right.

If you choose to work with me, we will address these things right from the get go. From the first time we sit down together, we will talk about the real estate market and activity, the best price for your home, what you need to do to maximize the bottom line, the types of buyers looking for your style and location of homes, and what I do to market your home.  We will also talk about how to deal with an offer when it comes in and all the options you have. 

As part of the offer we may see conditions involving different types of inspections, amendments, waivers, notice of fulfilments, statement asking you to do something regarding the sale, release forms, acknowledgements and acceptances.  All of these details can be quite confusing. This is truly when you find out if you have the right agent. I will walk you through all of this and explain it all in laymans terms.  All of this must be done accurately and in a timely manner, if not the deal could fall apart and then no sale.

If you have any questions with regards to this blog or any other real estate questions, feel free to email me or call me. I am always glad to help.

If you are ever in the Creemore, Stayner, Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Mulmur or Grey Highlands area looking to buy a home or you have one to sell, look me up.

I look forward to Personally and Professionally helping you.
