The Time to Think About Selling is When You Buy a Home

One of the biggest fears sellers often harbor about short sales is what if it doesn't sell? They have those fears because they are not in real estate. When you're in real estate, like this Sacramento short sale agent, you know that anything will sell if the price is right. Even a flooded-out house with mold the size of basketballs will sell. And yes, I've sold one of those, too.

There are a variety of reasons why a home might take longer than usual to sell, though. These are sometimes the reasons that some sellers don't want to hear because they are reasons the sellers should have thought of before they bought a home. I often tell people that the time to think about selling is when you buy a home.

Maybe it's in a bad location. You know, location, location, location is what drives real estate. Maybe there's something about it that other homes have and yours does not. I ask buyer's agents who show my listings to give me buyer feedback. From this I hear about things we can rectify. If we can't rectify those things, we can adjust the price to account for it.

Or, we can wait for the buyer who is just like the seller of this beautiful short sale. Because the seller bought this home for a reason. That is most likely the same reason a new buyer will buy it. Nobody is that unique.

There is a buyer for every one of my Sacramento short sales. If this agent is listing and selling that short sale, you can count on it.

Your post is right on...Everything sells and there is a buyer for everything too. I mean garage sales have proven that point much to the amazement of all...

Good morning Elizabeth,

Great points made, short sale or not - location is a key factor.  

Have a lovely Sunday!

There is definitely a buyer for every Short Sale out there.  And as you say, if you can't fix issues that potential buyers have, you can always adjust the price to compensate.
