I showed a home yesterday to some investor clients who are looking for a home to flip. We thought we had found a good contender and made an appointment to show the home. We got rejected because the agent could not meet us at the time we asked for, not sure why the agent had to be there, as the home was priced in the low 600's.
Strike 1, make your home easy to show!
Then I get an email from the agent, he is away at the moment, can we do later in the afternoon when he was going to have an open house. OK, no problem, we adjusted our plans and agreed.
Well it all be came clear when we visited why the agent needed to be there. The home is described as a 4 bedroom 3 bath home. Location was great as I said, and there was room for a flip as the comps supported some upgrades and a resale. So our hopes were upbeat.
We look through the home, where we are met by the agent who does not stop talking.
Strike 2 buyers prefer to see a home without being watched and free to discuss their options without constantly being told what they can do and how to do it!
We find the rooms small and the house choppy, but everything is going well. We move to the bedrooms but can only count 3 bedrooms, so we return to the agent who is now sitting in an office, no closet, open to the kitchen but which has a full bathroom adjacent. Oh yes, this is a bedroom he tells us. It has an en suite bathroom, and although there is no closet there used to be one, but the sellers used the space in the kitchen for a refrigerator. The large opening to the kitchen was easy to be closed up returning this room to a bedroom, although there was no closet.
Strike 3 have your home described accurately and priced accurately or it will not sell!
