A Real Estate License Isn't Needed To Pull A Rabbit Out Of A Hat!!!

We had a walk-in today and it was a homeowner who has his house on the market with another agent in our town.  This man wanted to have one of our agents visit his property and tell him why his house wasn’t selling. 

For starters, if you’re listed with another agent, we’re not going to give you a market analysis of your property.  Secondly, we’re calling your agent and letting him know that you walked into our office and request a market analysis from us.

This is not a game, Mr. Seller.   Your agent just dropped the price and from what I can see from MLS your “fully paneled home” and “checker board garage doors” continues to be greatly overpriced. 

What are sellers thinking?  These are the tactics that cause agents to detest each other.  These are the antics that sellers perform that create bad karma between real estate agents.  Drop your price and your house will sell.  Real estate agents can’t pull a rabbit out of a hat.  You, Mr. Seller, need to hire a magician not a real estate agent.

Barbara, you're absolutely right about not giving this seller what they want while is property is listed with another agency. Shame on him.

Barbara - Lowering the price to the right price isn't magic.  It's just something sellers often don't want to hear.

Hi Barbara. It helps tremendously when sellers reduce their price but some insist that something else or someone else is the reason their home is not selling. Good to read that you do not insult other agents and instead contacted the listing agent directly.

Yes I have had this happen more times then I wanted but it was because I started a service for other agents and called myself the only Marketing Review Broker in X county. What I would do is go with the listing agent and review the property and all their marketing to that point which included sitting down with the sellers. The impact of a broker from another company was very useful. I charged $500 which was only payable upon relisting (Its expiration) or sale.

Word got around and some sellers that were listed would call or drop in and ask for a review. I told them this was only a service I provided for the listing agent, not the seller, and they could ask their agent to call me. Many of the agents were ones I had done business with and had a relationship so I gave a freebie, well almost a freebie, I expected them to take my wife and I out to dinner and enjoy an evening together. Cheap price for getting a house sold.
