How is the market in Sauk Co? I have had property listed by a limited service broker on the MLS and

Asked by Seller, 53959 Thu Mar 27, 2008

newspaper ads for about 1.5 months, with only a few serious nibbles. How long should I wait before going to a full service broker? Or will things pick up as the spring weather improves?

In this market I would recommend a full service broker immediately. You need every bit of marketing resources a full service broker can provide. The amount of time depends on the location, price and condition of your property.

I think the shut-down had some negative effect on the market. I review deeds for an out of state company for my legal practice, and right after the shutdown, and immediately thereafter, there was a flood of work. It's has since died down considerably. My sense is that there is still some uncertainty in the economy. People are dipping their toe in the water, but they aren't ready to jump right in.

As Sue said, full service immediately in this market. Keep in mind that since it is already listed in your local MLS, it will not show up as a new listing when you do go to a full service broker so they will be operating at a disadvantage. With some extra hard work, a full service broker may still be able to get the house sold.

Honestly the market over the last month and a half has been quite unusual, web traffic is up but buyers are not pulling the trigger. We really are not into the true busy season yet so hang in there and hopefully someone will bite for you. Also in todays market you really do need maximum exposure so make sure who ever you have your listing with is going to put your home on as many partner sites as possible. Reedsburg is a tough market right now with a lot of inventory for buyers to chose from so its important for your listing to "stand out" in some positive way.

I would have to agree with both of the previous answers. A limited service broker is just that, limited in the marketing. You should list with a full service broker sooner than later. Do a little homework and find the best Realtor for your home. Talk to a few, and go with who you feel most comfortable with.

I agree with Sue, but not every Broker is full service even though they say they are. I reccomend RE/MAX Preferred as they have only experienced agents, other firms will load their offices with new agents and then claim to do a better job. Just not the case. visit for the best agents out there.
