Expired Listings Hot Topic

I've noticed that Expired Listings have been a hot topic here on Active Rain recently.  Not surprising considering how many Expired Listings are occurring as inventory far exceeds demand.

So - how can a Seller get their home sold in today's market?  It's a no-brainer that they have to have their home competitively priced.

What does that mean?

If you want to sell your home, and there are 9 equivalent homes on the market - you better be willing to price it at the low end of the range of list prices - AND - if the reason the 9 homes are languishing on the market is because they are all listed for significantly more than the last sale of an equivalent property - you need to price it for the market.

Average Days on Market in our MLS is hovering around 100.

Average Days on Market for our SOLD listings is less than 30 between activating the listing in the MLS and getting the property under contract.

Average percentage of inventory sold every month - about 10%.

Average percentage of our inventory sold every month - 30-40% - three to four times better than the average.

What's the "secret"?  Price, presentation and marketing (how many prospective Buyers do we "reach").
