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!

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.

5 Reasons You Should Sell Before the New Year

The holiday season is upon us. You were barely up from your turkey coma before Christmas decorations were out. Many homeowners wait to sell or, if they have their homes on the market, take it off the market, until after the holidays. If you are considering whether you should list your home now or wait until after the new year, keep reading. Here are some GREAT reasons to list NOW!

1. Staging Opportunities – Decorations and staging in one! Homes always look better during the holidays. So, put up the tree, string the lights, and put out the For Sale sign!

…but… what if someone wants to see our home in the middle of a family get-together?

2. Control the Show – You have ultimate control over showings and when agents and potential buyers can be in your home.

…but… there aren’t any buyers out there!

3. Serious inquiries only – You’re likely to get a buyer quickly who is READY to move in. Those just perusing the housing market are more likely to look during the spring market.

4. The Show Must Go On – Companies don’t stop working for the holidays, meaning relocations are still happening and relocation buyers are looking for a place like yours… NOW.

…and… last but not least, let’s talk about the financial aspect.

5. Inventory is down during this time of year, meaning competition is also down. Less competition means a better price for you.
