I listed my home for sale yesterday via Zillow. I've changed my mind, can cancel & I get a refund?


Good afternoon:This is a question that you will have to contact Zillow directly about.  Do you currently have an agent?  If not, I would greatly appreciate an opportunity to earn your business.Please contact me.All the best. /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-style-parent:""; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";}J.C.

when will my listing show up on


Have you listed your home with an agent?  If so, then ask your agent to ensure the posting will occur.  If you don't have an agent, then I would appreciate an opportunity to earn your business and share with you how I advertise my listings.All the best.J.C. Thatcher

What is your favorite tip for reviving a stale listing?


Hey Melissa:More often than not, buyers will ask about DOM and think that a listing has gotten stale after a period of time.  Back when the market was hot, a listing, in my opinion, was considered stale if it was listed for two to four months.  Nowadays, buyers understand that houses will sit on the market for six to nine months, easily.Reviving a stale listing...  Many agree that taking the property off the market for a while does help resuscitate.  The question becomes, how long do you take it off the market?  Many people do this during the holidays, so some may argue that there is shrinking inventory from Nov to Jan.  Thus, it is best to keep the house on the market.We are in a market where it is all about price.  My recommendation is tell your clients if you take it off the market for three to four months, they will be paying a mortgage during that time.  Perhaps drop the price now by that amount (e.g. $5K), or more if you can will help sell the house.  Unfortunately, it is all about price.Hope this helps.J.C.
