The New Listing on MLS
To get the most amount of money… in the least amount of time… with the least problems.
Part of a strong marketing plan involves strategies of taking advantage of being the shiny New Listing. You get a single opportunity to be the New Listing.
When you and the home are ready, it’s time to let everybody know.
Strategically we find it’s best to post the MLS Listing on Thursday and showcase the home with an Open House Sat and Sun.
Advertising a New Listing with an immediate Open House when priced right attracts most of the pre-qualified people currently looking to buy a home in your area and price range.
The first week gets the most showings. We average one written offer for every 10 to 12 showings. We usually receive one lowball offer right away.
After the first week, the new listing honeymoon is over. We still get showings. However, it’s now taking longer to get the 10 to 12 showings needed to get an offer.
After the first couple of weeks on the market, out come the bargain hunters looking for sellers that are dropping prices and getting anxious to sell.
Understanding home buyers is critical in selling a home.
Manny buyers start looking in a price range over their pre-approval mortgage limit. Even if they like your house they may not be able to afford it. They do think they will knock you down in price to what they are approved for.
At any given time, there are many people out shopping for a new home with their Realtor. The average buyer stays in the market a short time. First, they look at the existing listings. If nothing suits them, they are waiting for new listings. Or they may settle for something close to what they want.
Getting your home Move in Ready and Priced Right are the two most important parts required in getting the most amount of money… in the least amount of time… with the least problems.
The first showing for all homes is on the internet. Pictures get the most attention. Great Pictures Stand Out against the average and terrible pictures.
New listings are emailed direct from the MLS system to all people set up with auto search criteria matching your home. Turning an on-line viewing into a in-person viewing is the first goal.
Next is an in-person viewing into a written offer. Negotiation the offer. Next a Firm Sale.
The steps to selling a home are straight forward but rarely follow a direct path.
Things do go wrong and some deals never get completed.
Knowing what can come up and dealing with it proactively solves a lot of potential deal breakers before they get a chance to ruin your day
