Maine Real Estate For Sale !


The Home Owner Tells The Mailman He Is Highly Motivated To Sell.

The house seller's barber has heard the same spiel, once a month about how anxious the property owner is to sell his sticks and bricks.

The discussion fed,  shouted out to anyone within earshot pretty much shakes down the same old same old way. maine photos

The gist of the conversations are about how motivated the home owner is to get to the real estate property closing.

Will do whatever it takes. Above and beyond to "git 'er dunnnnn".

Heck even give up a duplicate organ or two.

So that real estate silent salesman speared in the front yard can be plucked, recycled, reused.

Planted on another new property listing for sale, on another house two streets over, one block down from it.

They say actions are louder than words.

In real estate, ignoring the market that is not the one you wished was unfolding around your home for sale is dangerous.

Life stands still as the home you want to sell does not. And one by one properties for sale wimming. Others around it come and go from the listing inventory of pick me pick me please. Get hooked, reeled in, scoffed up. maine home for sale photo

Being proactive, leading the real estate market. Like the pace  Indy car.

By making your property listing show up on the real estate track on the higher end of a lower bracket. It always just makes sense to adjust set up.

When stuck in a groove that like a record needle that just skips, repeats.

Can't get out of it's own way to move on.

When year after year new listings with the same old, no sir, don't change that price mister.

Not a budge, not a whisker shaved to make it new and different.

In the slice and dice filtering that buyers tap tap to see what is out there they can afford.

The lower the "sales" price can make what shows up on their filtered search funnel be their home sweet home.

Property price tags that don't change to reflect the real estate market pulse, temperature, blood pressure are like stalled vehicles.

Thrown into reverse. Or just parked here, there.

Scattered all over the real estate information highway raising havoc. Causing  sluggishness.

And the bordering property neighbors that agree with the home owner that the real estate market is poor don't help.

It is often just the pricing that is nose bleed too high that is the problem here people.

Not just the easy cop out to casually blame the market. Other factors like ease of access to show, the smells that turn the stomach and tenants that say heck no. We won't go without a few canisters of tear gas. And here come the clomp clomp thud sound of all those men in black. With hot inside masks, loaded down with swat gear to help the real estate eviction process mosey along nicely.maine lake sunset photo

Reflecting today's real estate market means putting the air wrench on the price tag bolts.

Whirring, spinning off the nuts and replacing the current price plague.

With a new one that reflects reaction in a positive way. For situations when   Marvin ask "what's going on?"

NASCAR quick responsiveness.

To get back on the round and round. All those hard to port, left hand high speed extreme G turns at quite an unnatural  tilt.

Your property listing is trading paint with other high wide and handsome track stars. Or should be.

Unless stuck in the pits, up on jacks and chances are slim pickings.

For making it to the winner's circle for the house warming bubbly. After the pass the keys, where do I sign again and again. And the "how about my check" slid this way real estate exchange process.

Good morning Andrew Mooers ,

Your post is so appropriate for me! I talked with a wonderful couple yesterday who I talked with last February about their home that was on the market. The listing agent was not in his familiar territory and listed the house way too high especially since it was built right next to a very visible lift station! I offered several suggestions..having the house professionally stage, planting some trees to block out the eyesore next door and lower the price! The listing agent recommended me and then told him he wouldnt charge a commission since he had sold them multiple homes! Go figure!! 318 days now on market and they are sitting on market like a stalled vehicle! They finally reduced to the price I suggested but too late..they have lost their edge and need to remove the home from market and try again at a later date with a fresh approach! This time they promised they'd listen and stage the house as well as price it right! They planted the trees so that is done. Love your true!!

Overpricing is a shot in the foot.....the longer it sits at that high price, the longer it will take to get it into contract, if ever.  Why don't people listen to the professionals they hire?

The price has such impact and a motivated seller has to let it go down. This is a grat post Andrew and tells it like it is.

Dorie Dillard ... Taking a listing and parking it too high a price ... waste of time, emotion and sets the wrong expectation. No results.

Roger D. Mucci ... Shelf life, real estate mold happens. And makes other property listings look like a whiz bang super deal. When all they are is priced within the market values to day for a ready, willing and able buyer to pull the trigger and we're off to the real estate closing.

We see this happening when friends and family, who have not sold anything in over 30 years, give their 2 cents advice!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson ... A little knowledge from the let's flip this house reality shows... oh oh.  Dangerous.

Debbie Reynolds ... Price, marketing, boils down to the only two reasons property does or does not sell.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Call 631-805-4400 (c) .. The advice from someone who is eighteen states away, different market. Or a person who did sell a home. But it was back in 1942. Things have changed but the same logic of over priced listings don't sell apply. Walk away when the seller starts to scream "I'm not going to give it away". When the value you give is today's not a pipe dream.
