  • You put your house up for sale and the listing expired without a sale. What went wrong? The majority of houses sell during the initial listing time, usually a period of three months or more. But-as you've found out-some don't sell. What should you do now? If your listing has expired and now you really want results, I can help. Don't get spooked by the death of the first listing.The home sale you want is still well within reach!
  • Are you Committed to Selling? First, although you may feel discouraged, if you still want or need to sell, make a renewed commitment to do what it takes to market the house effectively with Lisa Butler
  • Next, Lets find out went went wrong. An expired listing usually reflects a problem in one or more of four major areas:communication, price, condition or marketing.
  • 1. Communication Why no sale? What did prospects say about condition, and price?                 
  • What feedback did other agents offer? Teamwork between seller and agent is the key to a good marketing plan.
  • 2. Price This the most common culprit for the lack of a sale.The wrong price attracts the wrong buyers or the worse-none at all.
  • Market conditions and competition probably have changed since you initially listed your house. Is your price right? Are your terms competitive? Activity without offers often indicates overpricing. Remember, any house no matter what condition, will sell for the right price.

  • 3. Condition A house in move-in condition invites a sale. I can tour your house and help you see it as prospective buyers do.
