Lately, there has been some discussion about the probable causes which may hinder the sale of a property. Specifically, the reasons why some properties seem to languish on the market in perpetuity – while others do not. On a personal level, one of these presumably, often-occurring reasons has resonated with me: Accessibility. So, with that in mind, permit me to escort you on a stroll down memory lane.
Why Can’t Someone Buy It Sight Unseen?
Several years ago, my condo was on the market. The listing was given to a seasoned and well-respected colleague – a local expert from the area in which my condo was located. Being a real estate professional myself, I already “knew the drill” about getting my place ready to show. Then suddenly, my world was nothing short of eager anticipation mixed with agonizing trepidation. Why? Because I knew strangers would soon be traipsing through my home. I knew that due to occasional erratic scheduling, I might conceivably get very little notice before certain showings. Consequently, I knew that I would likely be inconvenienced – perhaps more than once. I also knew that realistically, I needed to keep my home in a “semi-constant state of tidy” – just in case. Trust me, I was far from happy. In retrospect, however, I also knew that I had to remain mindful of the ultimate goal: Sell the property.
Besides, How Else Might A Potential Buyer Confirm That My Kitchen Appliances Were Practically Unused
Interested buyers can’t see the unique and special characteristics of your home – if they can’t see the unique and special characteristics of your home. In my case, it certainly didn’t hurt that I was a cooking-impaired career girl. Imagine if you will: A refrigerator filled with nothing but the obligatory 4 bottles of nail polish, a package of AA batteries, and a jar of mayonnaise – past its expiration date. Not to mention, a practically-fresh-from-the-showroom oven with the owner’s manual still attached to the inside rack. Of course, in order to successfully promote and sell a property, there are other variables involved like pricing, condition, financing – and timing. Yet, one fundamental reality typically remains: A seller is looking for a buyer and a buyer is looking for a seller. Plus, here’s the biggie: the quicker a property sells – the less showings you have to endure. And, THAT my seller friends – is the icing on the cake.
