Las Vegas Expired Listings
With so many Las Vegas Homes for Sale it’s becoming more difficult to find buyers. Homes begin to sit on the market for days, weeks and months with no offers. Many times, homeowners become frustrated and blame their real estate agent for not doing their job to sell their home. Is it really the fault of their real estate agent that their home is not selling? It depends. If their real estate agent is actively marketing their home instead of just waiting for another agent to bring a buyer, than I would say no it’s not their fault.
So what happens when a home does not sell? Eventually it expires with their real estate agent, unless they extend the contract with the agent. Once it expires, the homeowner can expect to be bombarded with phone calls and mail from other Las Vegas Real Estate Agents stating they can do a much better job and sell their home.
My advice to Las Vegas Homeowners would be to interview several Las Vegas Real Estate Agents and ask lots of questions. Here are a few important questions you need to ask:
- Are you a full or part time real estate agent?
- How long have you been involved in selling real estate?
- How many homes have you sold in the last 90 days? In the last year?
- What type of marketing will you be doing to sell my home?
- What makes you different from other real estate agents I have interviewed?
- If I am not satisfied with your performance, can I fire you and hire another real estate agent?
Obviously there are many more questions you should ask, but these are a few of the more important questions that you need to ask. Remember don’t panic if your Las Vegas Home expires and don’t rush into a new contract with another Las Vegas Real Estate Agent. Do you due diligence and interview several agents until you find one that you are satisfied has the credentials, experience and marketing programs to sell your Las Vegas Home.
