Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with RE/MAX Select R.E | Designated Broker/Owner 17050

I've been told I have good bones and am in better than average condition. I'm definitely not what you would call "high maintenance". 

I'm not too small, not too big and really don't have any weird quirks about me. I don't have any odors or "history" and am squeaky clean all the time.

So why aren't you willing to consider me?

Why won't you even look at me?

Is it really just about price?

I come from good stock and am not going to just give myself away.  

Five years down the road, do you want to be able to say you found the best match for you and your lifestyle or that you just got the cheapest date deal on the block?

Hi neighbor,
I'll swim against the tide on this one. I have seen too many deals fall apart and too many disappointed clients as a result of short sales going south at the last minute. There are so many well-priced homes on the market now that I stay away from short sales and foreclosures all together.
I educate my clients on the pitfalls of short sales etc, and if they still wish to persue that avenue, I'll recommend another agent. But remarkably they seem to listen and stay with me. 
I see the beauty.

In response to "Consumer" - I worked with some first time buyers who wanted to focus on short sales/foreclosures because on paper the value seems tremendous. In reality, we looked at dozens of homes that were simply un-inhabitable. Once they expanded their search to non-short sale or foreclosure properties, they were pleasantly surprised to find that many of these homes were as good or an even better value than the distressed properties (usually because the distressed properties were in such poor condition). My advise to all buyers is to cast a wide net and be willing to look at a variety of different types of properties within your target price range, instead of being lured by the promise of a deal, which may not be a deal at all.
