A few weeks ago I received a call from a seller whose home was listed. She wanted to know if I had any buyers for her mother's home. I quickly explained if I did, I would call her agent and make an appointment. I suggested she talk with her current agent.
This past week I received this message from the same seller
'Margaret, Just wanted to let you know that we have reduced the price. We are ready to sell and neede an offer. The house is nice, but it's just in the wrong neighborhood. The court that my mom lives in has gone down hill. The major comments have been on the court and the neighbors. The school system didn't help either.'
This is not the way to get your home sold.
The way to sell a home is find positive features…not to share with others the home's deficiencies. I, again, suggested she talk with her listing agent.
Sellers can be their own worst enemy giving too much information.
