Hi Johnny: Sorry I'm just seeing this now, as I see you queried it on Sept. 1st. I'm wondering where you stand now with your sale. Also ... I'm wondering where your property is located.
This is an excellent question.... and to be honest this is a dilemma that Realtors often face as well. My advice to you is simple. If your property does not draw an offer within the first 2-3 weeks, it most likely is not at the proper price point. Please believe me when I tell you that every single time a property does not sell, it is a matter of price. That's a long blog that I think I will write soon . . .
In todays market, your agent should be monitoring the market WEEKLY is be certain that you are properly positioned. In our market area (Rockland County NY) there are a mere 2-3 offers per month now at any given price point. If my clients are not positioned properly, they will sit there and languish on the market.
My advice, re these 2-3 week visits is this. Have your listing agent contact the agents who showed the property for IMMEDIATE feedback. If no offer is in the wind (and trust me the agent will know) ... then you can feel safe that you are not leaving money on the table. You should be acutely aware of every single property that is in direct competition to yours and that has gone under contract and/or sold during every current week you are on the market. I do this for my clients. It is time consuming, but it is my job, and I would be negligent, especially in this type of market, if I did not provide that info.
Remember that we do not dictate to the market, but rather the market dictates to us.
Pick one day a week (I do Thursdays) and be sure you're up to speed on the market. Your realtor can help you with this ... be sure your price point is right in the sweet spot of where the last property similar to yours sold. Tweak, tweak, tweak. That is how you will be successful. You don't want some other property to be your competition...you want to be theirs. If you are not seeing an offer with all these showings the market (not your realtor) is telling you ... your are high. Tweak tweak tweak!!
Hope that helps . . . at least a little bit.
