Congratulations! You made the decision to put your home on the market. You interviewed a few real estate agents in the Franklin/Nashville area, or you had a family member or friend offer their services. You prepared your home for the market, cut the clutter, stowed away all the kids toys and now spend every morning trying to make it look like no one lives there for the potential buyers that may show up while you are at work.
There is no denying we are currently in a SELLERS market in the greater Nashville/Franklin areas. If your home was listed well and priced right, offers should be flying in. But instead….crickets. SILENCE. And silence in Real Estate is never a good thing. Everyday your home sat on the market without a contract, it lost it’s appeal to serious potential buyers. Your listing is now expired. Your home went unsold. Now what?
Selling your home doesn’t have to be a stressful process. Often times the reason(s) your home hasn’t sold are 1) price 2) condition and lastly the most important reason is 3) that your home is INVISIBLE to the RIGHT buyer.
Are you using a family member or friend as a realtor who offered you a discount to market and sell your home? Or have you chosen a realtor who’s offered to give you a deep discount to get your home sold? Often times this can cost you in the long run.
Maybe you’ve heard the saying “You get what you pay for.” Well, this is especially true in real estate, not just here in Franklin, TN, but everywhere in real estate. Those agents who offer to discount their services, in order to get your home sold, are also decreasing what they will do for you. They took the listing, often times, just to put their sign in your yard.
To this type of real estate agent, and they are out there, the sign in your yard means new leads for them, not necessarily a contract on YOUR home. Selling YOUR home is now not their main priority. They figure the home will sell itself.
Since they’ve discounted their fee, often they will be cutting corners with your home photos. They’ll take bad pictures, often with their personal cell phones, in horrible light and from terrible angles. They’ll upload those dark, ugly photos into the MLS where would be buyers will react by clicking through your listing, despite all your home has to offer. Good Photographs SELL homes. Your home should be presented in the very best light with photographs taken by professional real estate photographers like HouseLens or Showcase Photographers, to name some local options.
There are approximately over 10,000 realtors in the greater nashville area. Who you choose to represent you in selling your home matters. It matters in the days your home sits on the market, how many looky loos vs serious buyers will traipse through your home, and countless stressful days/nights spent wondering if you’ll ever get an offer.
