You have to correctly price your home.

I found this site to be very useful in breaking down benefits and tradeoffs of a flat fee MLS listing versus a traditional realtor:

I just asked a question about no one receiving my emails and got a nutty rude email as well. She basically argued that it's such an unreliable form of advertising that I couldn9;t possibly expect to get a response. ... more

The short answer is: Everything depends on whatever written documents you have signed with the company. Read the small print.

Today is the first day since April 1st that I have not had some sort of real estate appointment. And I still negotiated an offer (unfortunately unsuccessfully)... a multiple bid situtation no less.

Prices may not be rising incrementally, but sales activity is up.

I'm busy - the market changing!

Hi Zoryana,
I would love to e-mail you a few properties, just for you to see what you can find in Fairfield and some surrounding areas in your price range. Since you are a fam. of 4 I am assuming you are looking for a 4 bedroom home.....
Love to send you some homes, and then I would very much like to connect you with a partner agent of mine in the Fairfield area of CT to assist you in finding the right home for YOU! Do you have property to sell? Are you a first time home buyer? And let me know when you e-mail me directly what else you need in your home, i.e. 2 car garage etc. And we will go from there. Together with my partner agent you will receive first class service, I promise!
Hope to hear form you soon...

As of June 16, including currently active listings and all closed/pending activity looking back 90 days from today:
76 Active listings in your price range, average market time 84 days, 9 of these are continue to show (conditions of sale not yet removed) and one is a Hubbard;
8 have Expired with an average market time of 115 days;
9 are Pending, conditions removed, with an average market time of 88 days;
12 have sold, with an average market time of 78 days, average sale price of $451,000, average final list price of $475,583. Just shy of 95% sale to final list price ratio.

You will notice the expired listings have a much higher average market time, priced right properties in this price range are moving in 1-4 months, over priced listings are not moving. 4 of those 8 expired listings are from the same listing office (not meaning to flame here, just stating a fact). If you are selling, it is in your best interest to get more than one opinion on market time and pricing strategy. Don't fall for the trap of hiring the agent who gives you the highest number. If you are not sure you might even consider hiring an independent appraiser to give you an unbiased pre-listing valuation of your home.

If you are looking for more specific information, feel free to call or email with your needs.
