Sending listing reports to sellers

Response

I've been using this, and I think it's a great addition to my proactive approach with clients.  It gives them the confidence you are constantly watching over their listing until it's sold.

Two listing agents gave me wildly different listing prices

Answer

Glad to hear you went for two opinions.  With inventory being low all across the country, I wouldn't be surprised the value of your home has increased in a years time.  I would call the 1st agent back, he/she could give you an analysis over the phone on the market changes the past year.  As far as agents, go with your gut feeling. Who do you think is capable of selling your home the fastest?  You want to be on the market as little time as possible to avoid any future price reductions or getting overlooked as other new listing hit the market come this spring.  Good luck!

leasing retail space

Answer

Contact a local real estate agent. There are some brokers that only handle residential vs commercial listings. However, some handle both. Either way, they could point you in the right direction. We use loopnet.com to list commercial properties.

How important is pricing it right the day a property is listed?

Response

If you want to sell quickly, it's very important! Otherwise, the longer it sits the more the buyer tries to negotiate. In my area, homes tend to sell close to the asking price (if it's priced correctly) within the first 30 days.

We made a "good " offer on a homepath home with 5 days left on the first look. It was rejected. I th

Answer

Listing agents for Fannie Mae properties may not advertise they have verbally accepted an offer until paperwork is received and all parties have signed off. Therefore, the property still looks actively listed and many agents will still show it not knowing an offer was already accepted and they are just waiting on all the papers. If I show a property that I know won't last long on the market, I'll call the listing agent and ask if they are working with any offers ahead of time. Usually, they let me know and then I'll tell my client and advise if we make an offer, we may need to go in "strong" to be considered.

What is the value of my home?

Answer

Yes, contact a local or even a few real estate brokers for a comparative market analysis. This way you can get a good idea of your market value and interview possible listing brokers at the same time.
