"The Private Sales Company website showed that, supposedly, 1305 people had 'visited' the listing, but none of them had phoned the owner for an appointment, or even phoned with any questions", Bo reports. "Its not all that surprising. In a really HOT market, there are tons of buyers, but in a more level market, it takes more than a canned website and a newsprint magazine to sell a house. It takes teamwork and experience, something only a REALTOR brings to the table."
And with the super-hot market levelling off, home-owners who had been told that "You dont need a REALTOR", are finding that the marketing, expertice and experience provided by a top Listing Agent is impossible to beat or even duplicate. One problem that comes up is when home owners start to think "Maybe I'll try to sell privately for a few weeks, I can always call my REALTOR it that doesnt work".
The problem with that, Bo explains, is that a home is never more exciting than the first couple of weeks on the market. If it does not sell privately, prospective buyers start to think "Whats wrong with it". So dont waste those valuable first few weeks by trying to sell on your own. Think of it this way: If a new car-maker is about to release an exciting new model, they dont just advertise it in the "Pinawa Gazette"...... they create a media-blitz by marketing their new product on the Internet, Television, in Newspapers and Magazines and any number of ways. Make sure your home benefits from its own 'media blitz'.
'Bidding Wars' don't happen by accident, Bo explains. They are created by skilled and experienced agents. To see how this is done, watch this video:
With over 1500 REALTORS in Winnipeg, choosing one who is right for you can be confusing. So Bo has created this short, 2 min video to explain the main differences between them. To check out this video, click here:
