Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Real Estate Listing Information Gathering, Don't Make It 20 Questions.

Slow, tedious and and bits and pieces when a buyer is just looking for complete real estate property listing information is teasing.

You would not like to be made to wait. No one should have to experience delays on the most important, largest price tagged purchase most ever make in a life time right? Not feel frustrated with the information drip drip that follows for odds and ends, details. Or end up thinking could you go any slower any faster Mr Real Estate Agent, Broker, REALTOR?houlton farms dairy milk carton photo

And which is worse, if the real estate presentation painted a picture of a place being one way.

Then the finally get an appointment to come in from the curb. Motioned to wander through the front door and whoa. This is night and day from what I was led to believe from the propaganda. I mean write up of what to expect in the show and tell walk through.

Or just missing everything besides a couple of images.

Fat free not whole milk rich and delicious, nutritious. Many empty photo sockets not plugged in with pictures that could be chanting a thousand words apiece. And the narrative if there is one just a handful of words. As if they cost Morgan CC gold dollars to purchase, use.

Just a few sentences in the limited space for remarks on the MLS yes, no, maybe. No real estate video to help in the marketing. And then the mind of the real estate buyer kicking in to gear. To fill in the all that gray area in the mist of the unknown.

And here come the assumptions one by one. I had hoped, I expected, I wanted and thought this, that racoons in tree maine photoabout the property listing. The final lament how come this property is nothing like the online presents?

The truth, your real estate buyer can handle it unlike Colonel Jessup.

Homeless, tired, weary, couch serving. Holed up somewhere too tight, not right.

Waiting for their perfect match for a home to come up.

Don't put them out on a limb. Left there.

Having to like it or not, forced to start playing twenty questions. Making it go so slow the whole process becomes stale. Ho hum and a perfectly good property listing is passed over.

He or she, they are busy, hurry scurry and round the clock. Want the option to stop, drop and plug into the information stream for all your real estate listings. The local property area details as well. To decide in the eenie meenie miney moe of where to go. When needing four walls, a roof, floor and neighborhood to call home sweet home.

So details, nothing left out in the what have we here, what's for sale front and center.

A full array of images, videos, maps, aerials, and the skinny on property taxes, road frontage, lot size and then above and beyond. In the audio of the video pointing out like a real estate jeweler grading diamonds why this property is better built, good bones. Features way way less miles and more respect lathered all over it. During it's time on Earth. From the ground up sticks and bricks ker plop on the lot.

Sorting out the properties starts with knowing what the heck each is all about.

maine chipmunk photoSo the subtle and obvious differences shine loud and clear.

Easy peasy to tell the difference from the sea of sameness that the MLS conveyor belt of listings for sale can cause.

To make home buyer wannabees drowsy, like dosed with too much Dramamine.

Bored stiff but forced to call, hunt down more details when the presentation is lacking, just too skimpy.

Driving them nuts.

Often the problem is Joe or Jane Agent toss the rapid listing taking hen scratchings on the front desk.

With a hurriedly shouted over the shoulder. As they whisk by to another appointment "you the lady with the bun hairdo, 1950's cat eye glasses and black line down the back of the nylons. Figure it out, do the best you can at telling the online, print story about this new listing for sale will ya?"

Well la de da. Thank you very much.

So she's in charge. Never been to the property and not a lot of information on that scrap of paper combine for what do you say when you have little to go on? Standard default MLS jargon. "Be happy here, great area, search real estate buttonfriendly neighbors, snooze you lose. Buy now, get to the bank. " But not a lot of details to quickly, easily transfer information from the real estate listing beehive to the buyer who wants, needs to know.

In the tell me about the property listing, the new real estate for sale, the offering new to the market.

But kept elusive, vague, unknown unless the buyer rolls up his sleeves, Calls, tracks down more on their own. Hunts, pecks, probes. When the buffet of property listing, the real estate information should be spread out country harvest table loaded. With hand and fork in hand. Neck napkin tucked. The juicy tidbits, delicious property listing for sale details to dine on all cut up, potatoes buttered, salt and peppered right within arm's reach, at their finger tips.

Hello Andrew: Gift of gab. You do have that I think in person and in this form we call writing. Don't digress. Make it straight to the point. Your diversion is very entertaining but the tinge of truth is set right in.

Andrew, love the animal photos in this post. Some agents are lazy about writing good details of their listings, or are vague thinking that they will get a lot of calls asking for more information.  Why not give the details in the listing...enjoyed reading this post.

Maria ... tell a story, add the color, local way of saying, observing things makes it home grown.

Rebecca ... They were displaced from a park tick taking shack they lived in and waiting for the 4th of July to get over, return home.  There are agents that think if you give too much information they won't darken your door or call, email. They won't need to hound you for questions unanswered. But they will be reaching out, connecting if they like what they see, hear in the matchmaking of property listings that just glass slipper fit.

Good morning Andy. I have seen so many situations where agents talk themselves out of sale, as they just don't stop talking. Nice job with your post.

Hi Andrew.  Incomplete listings are so unnecessary.  Spell it all out.

JP ... Guidance, an agent, broker, REALTOR in the room to pilot the way through turbulence, not so smooth and not always so level flying heading to the touch down at a real estate closing.

CA ... Like winking in the dark, not so effective. Or editing out all the good scenes in Top Gun... what's left after all the acetate 35mm film snippets are on the showing room floor. Not on the big series of reels with the "0" in the corner to know when to roll 'em... fire up the other projector to keep those viewers on the edge of their seats, engaged.
