That is funny Annette!
So what is worse? A vulture that goes into a kill immediately, or one that comes from another town, tries to slip into the crowd, talk about everyone else and try to steal the whole thing after they make a scene?
Great House! I have seen it myself an I am surporised it is not sold!.
Marketing and contacts are key in getting your home sold. I am a local expert andI have success in selling homes in this size and price range. I have different marketing techniques than some others, which we can discuss in detail upon your call.
You have come to a site asking for advice and as long as YOU contact a Realtor directly to speak about your home while it is currently listed, we can speak with you regarding your home without any ethics violations related to your current listing agreement.

Very few homes don't sell as a result of poor marketing.
Virtually all homes don't sell because of pricing.
Even houses in poor condition and a poor location will sell if priced right.
I'm going through this myself so I am very sympathetic to how much this reality sucks. Can't control the market. You can only make sure that your house shows as best as it can and adjust the price to where buyers find it more attractive than the many other properties out there that you are competing with.
Each and every home comes with their own special way to market it properly.
In ALL cases that means over exposing the home on the internet. That is where 98% of today's homebuyers start their search!
In some cases, that might be trying to figure out where your target homebuyer will come from and finding creative ways of putting the home in front of them. Will they come from New York? Maybe advertising there. Will they come from a certain community in your town (moving up), perhaps you will want to target that neighborhood.
In other cases, your agent might want to appeal to the attention of the other agents working in your area. There are many ways to do that.
Communication is key! Interpreting feedback and understanding objections is very important. If potential buyers who saw your home didn't make an offer, did they buy something else? Why did they choose that home instead of yours. Sounds simple, right?
April, no matter what you do, you should explore your options. Meet with a few agents. If for no other reason that to hear different opinions and learn what different agents/brokerage firms bring to the table!
Please feel free to reach out if you would like a more personal explanation of how to properly market a home in today's challenging market place!
You didn't mention in your question if your home is listed with a Realty Agency. It is a difficult task to try to market a home on your own. When you list a home with an agency, not only do you have the agency and its sales people to market your home it goes to MLS and is viewed by 1000's of agents. In addition to that, the right company has many marketing tools it can use, including the internet. If you would like to hear about a forward thinking, fastest growing company in the area, give us a call at Orange Key Realty. We have an office right in the town in Freehold. 732-863-6969. Or call me direct to discuss your many options:908-239-1202
I also live in the area.
We take care of you from the listing to the closing table!!
give me a call and ill explain how I do things and why it works.

It is up to all prospective sellers to ask for a marketing plan before they list their home. Every home is different and your marketing plan should reflect that. If you want your home advertised somewhere other than the internet ask your agent to do so. As a rule of thumb if your home is on the market , is competitively priced ,in good condition and is easily accessible for agents to show it the buyers will come. Marlboro homes are selling and at good prices. If you are getting a lot of showings and no offers it is not the marketing it may be that your home may need to be updated or staged. If you are not in a financial postion to do so then adjust your price to reflect the needed improvements and that should make a difference

Your home is presently with your 4th listing agent who has a very good reputation. You are marketed at a great price for the location and size of your home. Obstacles to overcome, the rear yard photos are very limited and there are a lot of trees, garages are under ground, kitchen is white which 50% of the buyers like and50% don't. It looks like house short on furniture, you may want to do some staging ( furniture rental). Master bath is large ,could you some updating.

I am a Realtor with Remax Central in Manalapan and specialize in Manalapan, Marlboro and Freehold. In this market just putting your home on a bunch of websites probably won't get it sold. There is much more to the home selling process including: pricing your home correctly (preferable from the day it hits the market), professional photos & virtual tours that entice the buyer, follow-up & feedback from your agent on showings of your home, access to buyers to view your home - i.e. is it difficult for the buyers agent to make an appointment to show your home?, aggressive marketing online as well as aggressive programs to get your home sold. I welcome the opportunity to interview for the job should you decide to interview agents. I work with many Marlboro buyers - I invite you to visit my website at http://www.alltopmarlborohomes.com.
