1. What does an EXPIRED listing mean exactly?
It means that your house was listed
for sale with a real estate agent for a period of time but did not sell during
that period. In other words, your contract with the realtor has expired and your
house is not currently for sale unless you renew the contract with your realtor
or interview other realtors to see what they have to offer to help you sell your
2. Why didnít my home sell while it was listed?
There are many reasons that your
house didn't sell. It can be the first impression, condition, exposure, showing
flexibility, competition, location and RIGHT price.
Most expired homes don't sell because they didnít have an appropriate pricing
strategy reflecting all the variable that can affect the value of the house.
My role as a specialist in selling
homes is to come in and help you put together a more appropriate plan and
pricing strategy that should get your house SOLD in the shortest period possible
and for the highest market price.
3. I have been told that the economy is is still bad and it is not the best time
to sell and if I have to, it is better to sell it in the summer, how accurate is
If your realtor told you that, I
would recommend that you interview other realtors.You need to contact the right
realtor with the professional plan and appropriate pricing and get your house
sold any time during the year. I sold houses during the worst time of the
economy and been selling with good rates in the last 2 years and I can tell you
that the market in Houston in 2011 is way better than 2-3 years ago.
4. Since our home didn't sell, should we take our home off the market and list
it later when the economy recovers?
If I tell that our average time to
sell a house is 29 Days, would you list it again? It would worth an hour of your
time for real estate consultation to discuss your new plans.
