How to Sell a House BEFORE Putting it on the Market

If you have been paying attention at all to the real estate market here in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area, you probably know that the number of homes for sale is at an ALL TIME low.  Inventory is so low that buyers are waiting to pounce on anything decent that becomes available.  This has created an interesting effect for anyone that has a home they may want to sell.

We have had some listings that we were able to sell BEFORE we put them on the market recently:

We have had some that sold with multiple offers to choose from, or sold in the first few days:

We have even had some Buyers that had an accepted offer to buy a house, and were then approached by other Buyers offering to pay them $15,000-30,000 over what they were paying for the house!  

inventory-levels

Houses that top Realtors have the inside scoop on are often called Pocket Listings or some say they are Coming Soon listings.  Zillow even has a special feature that allows only Premier Agents (Finn Team) to post their “Coming Soon” homes.  Our Coldwell Banker Tuesday office meeting even added this to the weekly agenda: “Announcement of listings that are coming.”  This type of networking allows us to have a list of homes in various areas before they hit the market (anyone looking for a complete rehab in Hyde Park on Morten for around $395,000??).

So, if you know you want to sell but you are waiting for your handyman to do some touch-ups. Or your decluttering is taking longer than expected… let your Realtor know about it! Invite them over to take a look.  The house does not have to be “show” ready, and it can even give us a chance to make any suggestions.  How simple would it be to sell your house without having to deal with showings and keeping it squeaky clean 24/7?  This type of pre-marketing even allows the Seller to dictate when showings can happen at THEIR convenience!

So reach out to us today to get more information on the value of your home, coming soon listings, the process of selling, or what differentiates the Finn Team from all other Realtors.  OR if you are not quite at that point yet, follow our Facebook Page for the latest info, or bookmark our website.

FOCUS ON: Oakley

Population: 10,794

Oakley Cincinnati Neighborhoods

Oakley is vibrant, lively, yet more affordable than some nearby neighborhoods.  So much to offer including charm, excellent business district, and convenient location.  A mecca for singles, couples, or families of any age.  Oakley borders Pleasant Ridge, Madisonville, Norwood, and Hyde Park.

Oakley Square hosts numerous local shops and is anchored by the historical 20th Century Theatre. The theater was built in 1941 and is a distinctive Oakley landmark with its 72-foot tower rising over the business district. The deteriorating theater was slated for demolition in the early 1990s, but was spared due to its historical significance and is finding a new life as a concert and special events venue.

The Geier Esplanade, commonly known as Oakley Square, was created when two parcels of land were acquired in 1927 and 1932 and were converted into green space. It is situated in the heart of Oakley on Madison Road. Through the generosity of the Geier family, flowers and bulbs are planted each year to beautify this small parcel of land in memory of Mr. Fred Geier and Mr. Philip O. Geier, Sr. Oakley Square hosts numerous events, including Oakley After Hours on the second Friday of every month April – September, 6pm – 10pm where live music, kids entertainment, guest vendors and local businesses all share the spotlight for an evening of great family fun!

There is so much development going on in Oakley right now, both commercial and residential.  The Oakley Community Council (oakleynow.com) works closely with commercial and private residents to keep things moving in a positive direction.

Like the rest of Cincinnati, we definitely have a strong seller’s market in Oakley with low inventory and rising home values. We are continuing to pick up the pace in the second half of 2016, so if you want to find a place in one of Cincinnati’s premier neighborhoods, let us know! The Finn Team is the #2 REALTOR® in Oakley, and we’d love to help you find your place in the this fun and walkable neighborhood!
