I’m here today to bust two common real estate myths that may cost you money and stop you from reaching your goals for no good reason. We hear them a lot from clients, so we wanted to set the record straight.
- “All I need to get my house sold is to put it on the MLS.” Everybody seems to know that 92% of buyers go online, which is true. However, you’re living in an alternate universe if you think that putting a home on the MLS gives them the online strategies they need to get top dollar for their home. The agent you choose, the one who will get you the highest amount of money and the best terms, should be heavily invested in online strategies and outbound strategies. That’s what you need to connect to all buyers.
- “The market is a seller’s market, period.” This is nothing but fake news! Some areas of the Triangle have about two months of inventory and those are in strong seller’s markets. However, there are other areas and price ranges in the Triangle where we have eight, nine, and even 18 months of inventory. That is very much a buyer’s market.
We are deadly at the details in real estate because the details are what you need to make the decision to buy or sell. I’ve got a bonus tip to share with you as well: Great homes sell fast.
We are preparing about 50 homes right now for our coming soon website that you aren’t going to be able to find on any other place on the web. Take a look at those coming soon homes and let us know if any of them interest you. We will make sure you have a chance to see them on the first day they’re listed.
