Sell a Home in 12 DAYS..You Can’t Do That here!!

 

They say you can’t sell homes in mere weeks in this “buyers” market….you certainly can’t sell a home for 96% of the asking price!!  Here’s why…the National Association of Realtors track these numbers and they say, in New Castle County, the average days on market is over 80 days!!!  They have also found that the average Realtor sells a home, on average, for merely 87.5% of the original price:(  Makes you think it’s a “bad” market, doesn’t it??

The agent you choose makes all the difference in the world…..

Here’s what I have seen in the past couple months….A town-home in New Castle…we followed our selling plan and had it sold for 96% of original asking price in 12 DAYS!!!!  But, Jeff, that can’t be done here…

A home in North Wilmington was on the market for 86 days with another agent, failed to sell…we picked it up, implemented our selling plan and sold it for 95% of original asking price in 13 DAYS!!!!  She’s now living her dream down in Florida!!! But, that can’t be done here…

A 1/2 million dollar condo in Wilmington was on the market for 667 days (almost 2 YEARS….ouch!!)….then we installed our selling plan and sold it for 94.4% of original asking price in JUST 3 DAYS!!!!  But still, you can’t do that here…

BEST ONE OF ALL…..home in Middletown had been on the market for over 605 days..(I could’nt make this up if I tried) with another agent and failed to sell…..we implemented our selling plan and had an offer accepted in 12 days!!!!  Again at 96% of original asking price….now they are finally able to retire to their home in the Poconos… But, still, you can NOT do that here!!!  What??

Here’s the thing….YOU CAN DO THAT HERE….. AND THERE……EVERYWHERE….and don’t let them tell you “it’s the market”!!
