Unexpected showing activity

By
Real Estate Agent with Coastal Properties Group International

We've had some listings that have had only 1 showing in months.

One waterfront listing, at $675,000, had a showing request early this week. The shocked sellers said, OK. The following day, we had another showing request. More amazement, but OK. And yesterday, the third showing this week. What's happening???

A nonwaterfront listing, at $200,000, has had a few very quiet months, after an initial showing burst. It, too, has a showing scheduled for tomorrow - and today I had a prospect call that wants to see it on Monday.

Today all three of us on the Simms Team were showing properties to buyers - from $225,000 to $1,000,000. Yesterday we were busy, too.

probably unrelated, but interesting - James Thorner, writing for the St petersburg Times, has had some very negative posts, but on Wednesday he was positive, saying "Home buyers enjoy three discounts that might not survive 2009: a foreclosure discount, a tax credit discount and an interest rate discount."

Sharon--It maybe unrelated but as you say, who knows? I got 16 new leads on my lead generation site the day after the $8000 first time home buyer information was announce. Normal average, 2 per day. There are times when the media plays a role. Great news that you are getting interest...Hopefully many sales follow! :)

There was an article on the Today Show that the St. Pete area is getting hot, it was among 14 or so other areas in the US, including Sarasota.....look it up on the internet for the today show and you can probably catch the video that was on TV- it was a great PR job, only wish they would have used a better photo on the home in St. Pete.
