Maine Real Estate For Sale !


How Much Do I Have To List The Real Estate, Property To Make Sure It Does Not Sell?

Picture this a family where some want to see the old home place sold or waterfront cottage find a new owner to use now that the parents are gone.

As a Maine real estate broker these situations are delicate, can be a dangerous one way gallop in to a box canyon. A total waste of time if the not everyone is on the same page. Or if some of the familiy members want to list with the price so high that it will not, can not hope to sell.

A personal representative has the power to wheel and deal and set the price, terms, conditions of a sale.

But if the sentiment is the powers to be in the family unit just don't want to sell, but are listing to appease the rest of the family to give the appearance of a sale, well guess who gets blamed for a lack of a sale?

The real estate broker did not do anything, that is the reason the property did not sell it is chimed, circulated.

There are two reasons when it comes down to it why real estate does not sell.

Price the property listing way way too high if you really don't want to sell it. Have had older widows, widowers say I don't want to really move, not going to sell. I am going to die here. No more moves. But if you list for three, four times the value, a big nose bleed price with lots of zero places then I can shut the kids up who keep after me to list, sell, move closer to them since their mom, dad died. To make them feel better for me being all alone, them so far away and not able to check in.

I'm in the habit of not kinda, sorta listing and want the pricing, marketing to lead to sales. That's what I am hired for. That is how I get paid.

I have an affliction for, fondness, hunger to see SOLD signs, results.

Find sellers who are on the same page wise advise. Don't waste buyer's time either with over priced properties that clog the MLS system and have no hope of ever appraising for the listing price.

Maine, one drop dead gorgeous state, a place where your heart and your head finally are both in 100% agreement on something. Also your best case scenario.  Own some of ME.

Never have to look far to see something good on vid from you. 37 seconds of power!

Having too many decision makers is about the same as having none. One continuous round of negation. And yeah, the R gets blamed.

One listing referral, seller had 6 adult children who did NOT get along--and used the deal as a peeing match at every turn.  Finally I told them I am OUT until you are ALL on board--or GONE.

We closed, and I let the referral agent know we were good and she could find the replacement house. Nope, she said--I FIRED them all. The kids were making this impossible. They went thru 2 other agents before some half saint. half drill seargant took em all on. :)

Candice... You are right about too many cooks as bad as none in the real estate kitchen. Fire up the taser and lead the charge. If you can.
