Why Hasn’t My Home Sold?

Why Hasn’t My Home Sold?

5 Critical Reasons Your Home Did Not Sell!

Wrong Price?    Wrong incentives?    Wrong Marketing?    Wrong House?    Wrong Agent?      YES!

If You Would like a Confidential Conversation about your Property (click here) Or Call 480-361-4111

     Selling your home is a science, not a guessing or hoping game.  Most agents guess at the price and most sellers are hoping to get more than the market will bear.   Yes it’s true; every home will sell at the right price.  You need to determine the right price.   This is critical.

1.     Right Price.    By using the analysis approach, as an appraiser would, we analyze your home’s value, and compare that to your goals.  In a Buyer’s market it makes no sense to start high and work low over time.  You need to be priced close to or under the market so you will look attractive to buyers who are comparing your home to others on the market.  If you need a higher price than the market will bear, then you need to have a superior home and offer incentives to agents and buyer’s to consider your home over the competition.  This conversation must take place with your agent. See what Your Home Is Worth

2.     Right Incentives.    Offering cash incentives to cover a problem with the home is NOT a good thing.  Buyers don’t want to deal with the requirements of the lender, and the repairs themselves, after the home closes.  Problems should be dealt with before you put the home on the market.  Problems will almost always equal a lower price offered.   Instead, offer to pay the buyer’s closing costs and offer additional compensation (commissions) to the showing agents.  Who schedules the showings…?

3.     Right Marketing.    Most agents will put your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and hope it sells quickly.  If they price it right and offer the right incentives, that might happen.   But it didn’t!  Now what?  They will come to you and ask you for another price reduction.  Now might be a good time to ask them what marketing they have done specific to your home.  Chances are they didn’t do any additional marketing.  Then compare their marketing to the Rutt Team’s Marketing Plan.  We market every home we list with our full online and offline marketing plan.  We start out with gorgeous photos of the home.  We build a unique web site for each home we list, including virtual tours, photos, mapping, features, etc., and then syndicate it to all the real estate websites.  We also do a lot of offline marketing in real estate publications, open houses, E-Flyers to agents, neighborhood flyers, Call-capture sign riders and yes, we answer our phones when they ring!  Call the agent you are considering a couple of different times throughout the day and see if he/she answers their phone.  If they don’t answer their phone, they are missing your buyers.  Then, call “The Rutt Team” and see what happens.  You will get a live person.  Compare Your Current Marketing Plan to The Rutt Team’s Marketing Plan.  Search All Listings On The Rutt Team Search Site.

4.     Right House.    Have you done everything you reasonably can to make your home shine above all the other competing homes?  Clean up the landscaping, clean the entryway, clean the carpets, clean, clean, clean, and paint the interior if needed.  Have you organized the closets, kitchen cabinets, pantry, and de-personalize your home?  See Tips restaging your home.

5.     Right Agent.    If they are avoiding the conversations above, or they are simply agreeing with everything you say to get the listing, then maybe they are not the right agent to negotiate for you when that less than perfect offer comes in and you need a better price or terms.  Contact us Now.

Why Are Buyers Looking For HUD Homes For Sale in Phoenix Arizona Info?

Why Are Buyers Looking For HUD Homes For Sale in Phoenix Arizona Info?

When a home owner defaults on the payment of their FHA loan, the financial institution that holds the loan (banks) eventually take that property back. The Federal government (FHA) insured the bank against the buyer’s default. The bank then turns the property over to FHA/HUD for reimbursement of their losses. FHA/HUD acquires the home from the bank. Then HUD cleans up the property, looks for safety and soundness issues and markets the home for sale in it’s as-is condition with disclosures about the known conditions.

Anyone who can get a loan, or pay cash, can buy a HUD Home. There are priority periods for owner occupants, at first, so check with your HUD registered real estate agent for more information. HUD homes can be purchased at excellent values. They are located in most neighborhoods, and many are in move in condition. Investors may purchase HUD Homes after the owner occupant period has expired. You have a 15 day inspection period to inspect the home and discover any previously undisclosed, non-cosmetic items. The inspection is to satisfy you about the condition of the property. HUD will NOT do any repairs! You are buying the home AS-IS, and hopefully at an excellent value. Your agent can discuss your options with you after your inspection is completed. Buyers DO need to work with a HUD registered real estate agent to bid on a HUD Home. Feel free to contact us. We have helped thousands of home buyers purchase HUD Homes for more than 20 years. We also train other agents on the process of selling HUD Homes. You can start your home search and fact finding below. . . or call us and we will walk you through it.
