We are our worse enemies- make the right choice.
Ever wonder why the public has a negative perception about realtors? Ever wonder why we’re compared to used car salespeople?
This morning I was checking our MLS for expired listings as I do every morning and low and behold I came across 3 expired listings that I thought I would contact and offer my services.
Trying to figure out why these listings didn’t sell several points jumped out at me..
· Only 3 pictures—we’re allowed to place 16
· Misspelled words..can you believe it?
· Blah descriptions
· I couldn’t find these homes anywhere else other than our MLS…too bad
Further analysis revealed 2 of the listings were placed with discount brokers, you know they put it in the MLS for a flat fee and walk away…sort of gives full time professional agents a bad rap but I understand people want to save money..but sacrificing on service..Does that make sense? After all you want your house sold right?
The sellers are willing to co broker with a buyer’s agent at 3% but skimp on the selling side…hey the selling broker is responsible for promoting and marketing your house to get it under contract right???? This is where you don’t want to skimp on marketing.
