If you're selling your home, what happens when the listing expires?

You'll be getting a lot of calls and solicitations from Realtors, so make up your mind if you still want to try and sell. If you do, interview at least three agents. Three is the perfect number.

Listings almost always expire because the house is priced way too high.

Next, go ahead and reduce the price. Listings almost always expire because the price is way too high.

Finally, consider the condition of the home. Be honest - what is the condition of the property? Do you have good curb appeal? Does the home show well? You want to make it show well this time.

If you have any other questions about what happens after your listing expires, give me a call or send me an email. I'd be happy to help!

How We Made the Home Buying Process for Myron and His Wife Stress-Free

“The results were exactly what my wife and I expected. He was very diligent and very thorough with explaining things that we were unaware of, but most importantly he was able to prioritize exactly what we wanted so the results were beyond what we expected. We needed an inspection and he was able to be at our place for the inspection for what I believe was a duration of three hours so that right there showed us that he was dedicated to making this experience complete and stress-free for us.”

How We Worked as a Team to Help Luis Quickly Sell His Home

“Working with Joe and the team was great.I was able to meet with him on Friday, we put the house up for sale and by Sunday night we had several showings and two offers. He and his team were really on it as far as letting me know what’s going on and I liked everything being online. It was a good thing for me. It was great to sign the docs online for the most part. He and his team overall were great. Everyone has different responsibilities for the transaction and I think overall the communication was great.”

Today I wanted to talk about open houses and the best ways to utilize them in the San Diego real estate market.

For starters, the more signs the better. It's hard to conduct an open house without a lot of them, so I recommend anywhere from 20 to 30 signs. Secondly, go heavy on Internet and social media marketing. Put the open house on Craigslist and social media, as well as the MLS. Put it anywhere and everywhere online to let people know it's for sale.

I recommend 20 to 30 open house signs minimum.

Lastly, don't forget to invite all your neighbors and your friends to your open house and let them know you're moving on. Maybe they have a buyer in mind who will want to buy your home. Utilize your neighbors and friends for promotion!

I hope you find these tips helpful for your next open house. If you have any questions about open houses or about the San Diego real estate market, give me a call or send me an email. I'd love to hear from you.
