 Does your agent have detective ways of finding the right buyer?

 

                                                                                                             Dragnet Theme 

 

The term DOM (days on  market) may be used by real estate professionals to guide a buyer how and when to make an offer.

But many very unique homes are buyer specific such as farms, contemporaries, homes built in the 1800's, Deck Homes, ranchers without basements and historic properties.  If you have been following me you know I specialize in  Unusual Houses

 

 

 Days On Market can be much longer for unusual, unique and one of a kind homes.

Marketing and patience is needed to find that one buyer who is going to love your home?  Can you handle hearing comments like "what's wrong with the house" or  "do you think it will appraise" ?

Owning and loving these special homes takes patience both emotional and financial when it is time to sell. Do you have this kind of patience and time to find the right buyer.

Owners of these special properties put their homes up before they are planning to move. They know it can be a long time to find that one right buyer. Not only does the owner need this kind of patience but so does the Realtor®

If you own a very unique property, choose your agent wisely.  Be careful about an agent whose only solution is  "drop the price" until it is sold.

I have been the 2nd or 3rd agent and have felt the property was under priced...another reason to hear ''something  must be wrong".

I am not talking about similar homes in the same area but rather  'one of a kind' unique properties. Make sure your agent can draw the very special buyer to your property which is not a Clone-onial.

 

Does your agent have detective ways of finding the right buyer?

I feel like you.  Sometimes it's not a matter of dropping a price.  As lomg as the sellers are willing to be patient, and to not be offended by a low ball price.

Joan Dickie Being patient need to be a discussion at the time of listing. The only way to do a fast sale on a unique or any property is with price! Just left you a message.

The price is absolutely not the only way to sell a home, and yes Margaret, you are the Queen of Selling Unique Homes!  And in unique ways too, I might add...

Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland  I will be singing that song all night now .. Yes we must discuss these objections with the seller when we list the property .

DOM should really be down in 2016 , as we are seeing scarcity in a number of price points !

Margaret - You certainly have the right stuff to help anyone looking to buy or sell a unique home in the Baltimore area. It does take a little patience on everyone's part, as the process may take a little longer.

Troy Erickson For these unique properties, we all need patience.

Unique homes often take unique talents, efforts and marketing to find the right buyer. Seems that most buyers are always wary of long DOMs, and want to know why. And they also often assume this means they can negotiate more. It all depends on the situation, the local market, and other factors. Having the right agent can make all the difference

Margaret, specializing in unusual homes and not Clone-onial homes is not for everyone. It takes a special person willing to learn about unusual homes and the buyers who seek them.  Love the drag net theme!
