$65.00. That can be the difference, from your listing selling or just sitting on the market for month after month. $65.00. That's the amount of money that could be standing between you and your next pay check. $65.00. This is how much it costs to buy a couple of worthless leads from a "lead mill". $65.00. This would pay for a mailer of 35 post cards that will get thrown in the garbage, or a hundred flyers for your listing that will end up getting wet and ruined in the brochure tube. $65.00. This is how much your bar tab could be while you are sitting there moaning because you haven't sold a house in 3 months.
$65.00. This is the amount my lawn service charges for one month of service on my listings. And the Seller will pay me back at closing. If they don't, who cares. I will take it out of my $8,000.00 paycheck.
Now here are some examples of what NOT spending that $65.00 will do for your listing. These homes are my competition. I took a listing this morning and snapped these photos while I was in the neighborhood. All of these were within 1 block of my listing. There were many more but I think you the point!
Now this is what one of my listings look like. All for $65.00.
So, folks if you want to get paid, provide some service for your sellers. Don't ask them. Tell them you are doing it. And while you are at it, pay a cleaning crew.
And most importantly……….Get your sign out of the tree!
