I approached every realtor in town last year asking for the expired listings. Not one would give me the right time of day. They all thought that if a listing expired with one realtor they would pick it up. Didn’t happen. When there were NO houses to be found those same realtors came knocking on my door to see of I had and properties for them. Guess what I told them. Tables seem to turn every few months and I found that they will cooperate only when it is to their own interests. Not a good partnership. 4 months ago there were 600+ HOMES ON THE MLS, 2 MONTHS AGO THE NUMBER INCREASED TO 11,000, TODAY THERE ARE IN EXCESS OF 18,000. Now they are calling me to see if I have any reasonably priced houses. Of course I do, but I will pay a flat $1500.00 and I want to do all the paperwork to make sure the deal closes.
