Fyi, if you enjoy cold calling or pay someone to do it for you, there's software out there to 'auto' dial entire exchanges and zip codes, all the while scrubbing your list against the DNC numbers.

I used them for years with unbelievable success in the general contracting business.

We didn't need the golf cart space so that will be added to the kitchen! Surrounded on three sides by newer custom homes, this one will also be a beauty. ... more

Kim - 30 days is somewhat long for getting the conditional approval, 3 weeks really should do it.....

Where there's truly a disconnect regarding these time frames is the difference between the written contract date and the actual date we receive the complete contract...This is usually a week or so.....there's also additional delays created when we need to wait for the pre-lim, copy of earnest funds check, title & escrow fees (our form that we need fully completed by the escrow officer so we can issue the new GFE)....

In spite of these delays, most realtors insist on trying to close a deal in 30 days or less, knowing full well that this process has been taking 45 - 60 days to close/record.....

Interesting question, keep em coming!

best, Jeff Marr

Kim ... Maybe its time to think outside of the box. Have you looked at an auction sale? It is possible to put a property on a quality auction and be able to net your seller more than their bottom line net and quickly. It still takes work but I bet you already have the comps that an auctioneer will need to set a good price. And many times the commission cost structure will not be much different than if another broker sold it through the MLS.
