Murfreesboro TN Homes: Murfreesboro TN - If You Want To SELL Your Home Your Must SHOW Your Home!

Murfreesboro TN - If You Want To SELL Your Home Your Must SHOW Your Home!

Dear Mr. Seller, 

I really wanted to show your home to my clients.  It was the number murfreesboro tn real estate showingsone home on our list.  Your agent did a wonderful job with the pictures and description.  It seemed to have everything my clients were looking for, and they were very pleased with the list price.  We were a little concerned over why your home has not sold - it looks too good to be true!

I contacted your agent and discussed your listing before scheduling an appointment.  He stated that there were no pending offers and that he could get this closed quickly.  We even discussed the items that you would not leave with the home and that the list price was fairly firm.  My clients had no intention of low balling the list price and already felt like it was priced to sell.  I stated that I would like to set up a showing for this afternoon or tomorrow, and he informed me that your home was "very easy to show" and just call the showing center.  

After my phone call with your agent, I immediately contacted the showing center and was told that your listing was “appointment required” and not a courtesy call.  No problem.  I requested a showing for late this afternoon, which gave you at least seven hours to prepare.  We could easily have bumped that out even further if you needed more time or even waited until tomorrow.  The showing center just called back and informed me that you did not want any showings and did not offer any date or time that would be convenient for you.  You just simply declined all showings.  

I called your agent to give him the news and see if he had any insight on what was going on.   He wasn't available so I left a detailed message.  I haven’t heard back from him yet and can only imagine that he is trying to figure this out as well.  He’s put a lot of work into getting your home marketed so that buyers will schedule showings...and buy your home!  I’m sure he is as frustrated as we are and understands that you have ultimate control over the showings.    

I really hope you sell your home Mr. Seller.  But, it looks like you aren't very interested in selling.  The market is tough Mr. Seller and I had a buyer who was prequalified and ready to close quickly.  Perhaps the reason your home hasn't sold is because you don't approve showings!

You can’t sell your home if you won’t show your home.  We will be moving on to the other homes on our list.

Moving to something else is a bummer if the buyer wants to see this one!

Does it seem as if they seller(s) haven't emotionally prepared themselves for the sale? I see that sometimes - perhaps it's time for their agent to have a heart to heart. It might be something else, but I've seen this phenomenon before - passive aggressive. No one can see the house. Best of luck Sherri-

Hi Debb - That's exactly what I think the problem is with this home.  Older couple not REALY ready to sell despite what the agent told me.  I still can't get in touch with the listing agent which tells me something must be up!  I was really surprised this one was still on the market and I think this explains why.

Sherri, I think it sounds as if the Seller is not happy with the listing Agent/Brokerage..... and is declining showings until he (the seller) figures it out.

Excellent post, Miss Sherri.  This happens all too often, and you just have to scratch your head and wonder 'why?'  And the showing services aren't forthcoming either.  What a pain.
