Why Homes Don't Sell

Today's market has many sellers questioning the ability or the committement of their real estate agent. Agent to Agent we all know why homes don't sell... It's The Price.

Homes are typically over price for 1 of 2 reasons. The agent isn't experienced enough, or lacks the skill to properly price the home or the seller insists on OVER PRICING the home because they fail to believe the facts.

To get a home sold for the most money sellers and agent must price the home correctly.

Our company approach is to "Tell Sellers What They Need To Hear, Not What They Want To Hear."

The Number 1 Reason Why Homes Don't Sell

Why Homes Don't Sell! Most Agents Know It, but very few sellers understand it. In my 42 years in real estate and 20 years as a real estate appraiser it still holds true, a properly priced home is the number 1 reason that gets the home sold. Many times, I have been contacted by a seller who says they're unhappy with their current agent because their home hasn't sold. My first question is why are they unhappy with their agent? They typically unload on me about the agent. After listening to them for awhile, I then ask how many showings did you have, and they respond at least 40. I then asked them how did they arrive at the list price and there are typically 3 different answers 1). It's how much we need to move, so the agent said lets give it a try, 2). We had three agents provide a market analysis and our agent was the highest, 3). Our agent provided a detailed analysis, but we felt our home was worth more. There are other reasons, but the above three are most typical. There is one time where it's clearly the agents fault, and that's when they "Buy The Listing" which means they purposely set a high list price to enhance their chances to get the listing. Bottom Line... When interviewing real estate agents you should consider the agent with the best track record and who takes the time to prepare a detailed Market Price Evaluation, and you should listen to them.

Real Estate Career In Omaha Nebraska

FREE Marketing Tip of The Week

Are You Looking For a Career In Real Estate?

Real estate is a very rewarding career for those who have a competitive spirit. We have been active in real estate since 1976 and we love it. Depending on who's facts you read, 85% of new agents will quit the business within their first 5 years. We have found this to be pretty close to par in the Omaha Nebraska market.

What do agents need primarily to succeed?

  1. They Need Leads and
  2. The need to follow-up on their leads consistantly
  3. Finally, they need the sales skills/tools to close the leads.

To generate the leads you need, the agent must have a plan on how many closed sales they will need to meet their income goal.

Then the agent needs to have a followup system for Customer Relationship Management to follow-up on their leads on asystematice basis. This is where most agents fail...

Finally, the agent needs a very good Buyer and Seller Listing Presentation to secure an Exclusive Agency contract.

That's where a Great Broker comes in... Not the biggest, or the cheapest in fees, but the one that has the systems in place to help you build your business. WE have thos systems and the training for our agents.

Great Service and Customer Support at the Bedding Company

Without going into every detail, I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the support and service I received from the Bedding Company in Omaha Nebraska.

About 18 months ago I purchased an SERTA I-Comfort Prodigy mattress set.  It is a great set and my wife still loves it.  However, about 4 months ago the condition of my lower back changed greatly, and I started sleeping in a recliner, little did I know that this is sometimes referred as "Zero Gravity" in mattress terms.

I started the mattress hunt again, thinking I was going to have to buy an adjustable mattress for our spare bedroom and I was nearly ready to buy, but not sure about sleeping in seperate bedrooms.

I didn't think I had a prayer, but I stopped buy their location at 123rd Cener area, and discussed my problem, and wondered if they could help.


 Thanks to Dave M. and the Owner.

I'm sure they can't always do what they did for me, but I sure they'll take care of you, and this is a great place to buy a mattress.

Protect Your Mortgage Interest Deduction

Call for Action: Do No Harm to Housing

The REALTOR® Party needs your urgent help to protect the stability of the American housing market and the American economy. By now you have seen numerous news reports concerning the “Fiscal Cliff.”

Many of these reports speculate that a change to the long-standing policy that allows homeowners to deduct mortgage interest payments from their income taxes could be part of a “Fiscal Cliff” deal.

REALTORS® need to “remind” Congress about our position on any proposed changes to the mortgage interest deduction.

NAR's position is that the mortgage interest deduction is vital to the stability of the American housing market and economy and we will remain vigilant in opposing any future plan that modifies or excludes the deductibility of mortgage interest.

Please send this short message to your Senators and Member of Congress to remind them where we stand and that we will be watching to see who stands with us. Below is example

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am writing to you, as a constituent and as a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, concerning an issue of critical importance to the United States housing market and the economy.
As my elected official, it is imperative you remain vigilant in opposing any plan that modifies or excludes the deductibility of mortgage interest.The mortgage interest deduction is vital to the stability of the American housing market and economy.

I am sending this message to ask you to stand with 70 million American homeowners. I will be watching to see who stands with us.

Donald Keeton
