Stacy is right. It’s not the home that sells it’s the ease of which you can put in a buyer. I would probably try to get rid of the realtor myself if you’ve have no activity.
It looks like you have plenty of room on this deal to make some concessions if needed to get it sold.
I have a deal that I am working on now that I got a buyer in 4 days. I am flipping this one.
Sunday I went out there, cleaned the yard up and trimed the hedges. While I was there I put a for sale by owner sign in the yard. I had a couple people stop by but nothing serious. I also put one of those information containers on the sign that I could put a flyer in.
The flyer didn’t really talk about the home except for the small print at the bottom. I didn’t put a price on it either. Here’s what it said.
Im ready to deal are you ready to buy?
*Flexible seller on price and terms
*Will help with financing
*will trade other assets for down payment
*Will sell as is
*will sell fixed up what ever you want
Give me a call Im ready to deal 555-5555
When they call I find out what kind of buyer they are then I can quote them a price and terms.
That’s the basics of it, I signed a contract to the 6th person that called, that was today. I was fortunate It was a strong credit buyer they are putting 20 percent down paying closing costs so I gave them a good price. After It’s all said and done I will walk with about $13,000.
Now I could have held out for more money but this was an easy buyer that you don’t see everyday so I let it go as is no hassel, no fix up.
I hope this gives you an idea On how to create some activity on it and hopefully sell it.
