You can sell it as a "Handyman Special" or a "Fixer-Upper". You will have to price it "low low" in order to attract the right buyer. Make sure your Agent knows your situation and can communicate that in the listing and to any potential buyers.
There is a buyer for every house, as long as the price is right!... more
I can't speak for your market and your agent. What I can do is explain how the process works when I meet and list a property.
* Discuss the comparable homes and pricing and suggest price with seller.
* Explain my marketing plan, open houses, agency (dual or not), future price reduction strategy
* Explain how the offered commission, terms, and type of listing will affect showings and contract
* Explain that appt. only, and will reduce showings
* Discuss anything negative which may affect a buyer's decision, pet odors, cigaret odors, cooking odors, visual objections, neighbors, power polls, noise factors, furniture placement, color choices, lighting, etcâ€¦ And what could be done to mitigate
* Once the listing is signed and the seller understands what their roll is, what my roll is, and how other agents work then we set a weekly follow up call.
* Every two weeks a report is prepared for the seller on showing activity, other properties on the market, off the market, price reductions, interest rate changes, website hits, and feed back from showing agents.
* I call every agent for feed back from buyers and relay that to the seller.
* I call other agents who have listings and get their activity level on their listing.
* I call recent solds in the area and talk with their agent to see if they have any buyer leads they can introduce to the listing.
When you and your agent have effectively communicated there should be no frustration with each other. Your agent doesn't make the market only interpret it. So as the other agents suggested, Google your address, your agent, and then schedule a meeting to get feed back.... more
Is this house on a well or city water? If it's a well and is soften water by the use of salt, possibly the distribution box is collapsed, if it's a concrete system, salt loves to eat concrete. It sounds like the gray water can't exit the tank to the leach field. Could also be the baffle inside the septic tank on the exit side dropped and solid waste is plugging the hole. Have the tank cleaned and inspected with a light and mirror. If there are trees planted near the system roots maybe grown into the piping as well, Good luck... more
