Did Your Las Vegas Home Not Sell? Let Us Show You Why

Las Vegas, Nevada — Did you recently list your Las Vegas home with a Broker and it DID NOT SELL? If so, you’ve come to the right place. There are many reasons why homes don’t sell. Sometimes it’s the price; however, this isn’t always the case. The number one reason why homes do not sell is because listing agents fail to properly market the home.

Unfortunately, many people choose to hire a Broker because they are a “friend of a friend,” however, this does not guarantee they will be able to sell YOUR home. No two homes are alike, and marketing plans should be customized for each property. For many agents, their marketing plan is to snap a few photos with a smart phone and put a “For Sale” sign in the yard. If it were this easy to sell homes, you could probably do a better job yourself.

The bottom line is if your home isn’t selling, and sits month after month with no offers, the expenses begin to add up, such as utility bills, HOA fees, monthly mortgage payments, landscape expenses, etc. This is why hiring a “Discount Broker” who fails to perform may actually cost you more money than anticipated.

The Myers Team specializes in Seller Representation. Our strength is our ability to enter a home, assess its strengths (and weaknesses) and develop a successful marketing plan to get it sold. If your home was listed with a Broker and it didn’t sell, we will analyze your prior listing, then sit down with you and explain why it didn’t sell. We will begin by outlining the changes we would make, specifically to the marketing strategy. We will walk through your home with you, helping you stage it properly, and offer recommendations so your home looks its very best for photographs and showings. No matter the age or condition of your home, The Myers Team has never met a challenge they wouldn’t take.

Why Foreclosure Is Much Worse Than A Short Sale

Las Vegas, Nevada — Walking away from your home and allowing it to foreclose is a decision which can haunt you for years. Once a home is foreclosed upon, (or sold at auction after a “Deed in Lieu”) banks have up to six months to file a deficiency judgment lawsuit against you. The deficiency amount is the difference between what you owe on your loan (including all missed payments, late fees, and bank attorney fees) versus what the home sold for at auction. Banks may or may not come after you for the deficiency amount; however, it’s not that simple. There are other factors to consider. For example, after the six month period following a foreclosure has expired, banks can continue to post late payments to your credit, damaging your credit score. Even after the statute of limitations for collection has expired, many banks will continue to post late payments in attempt to collect the debt. They will call you day and night, at home and work, harassing you to make a payment. Additionally, they will send you letter after letter offering to settle the account, even though you are no longer obligated to pay. If you choose not to settle, they can continue to post late payments on your credit for years. Foreclosure is the worst possible option because it is the most damaging thing you can do to your credit. It’s like cutting off your hand because of a hangnail. There are better options.

A short sale is the much better option. There are essentially two reasons to do a short sale. The first is to obtain a deficiency waiver. This is a written agreement from your bank NOT to come after you (sue) for the deficiency amount. The second reason to do a short sale is to minimize damage to your credit. Once the short sale is finalized, banks report to the three credit agencies that your account has been “settled or negotiated.” This stops the late payments from being reported by your bank. When you do a short sale, your credit may take a temporary hit; however, you can begin rebuilding your credit as soon as the short sale is finalized. This is much better than a foreclosure or Deed in Lieu, where the bank can continue to post late payments to your credit for years and years.

Tips For Selling A Not-So-Perfect Home

Las Vegas, Nevada —   No home is perfect, however, some are in better shape and easier to sell than others. If your home needs “a little work” but you’d still like to sell it for the highest possible price, there are steps you can take to attract ready, willing and able buyers?

Here are seven tips to help you sell a not-so-perfect house.

1. Make It Clean and Clutter-Free

First, de-clutter your home, removing anything that might distract a buyer’s attention, says Bill Myers, Realtor at Simply Vegas Real Estate in Las Vegas. “Get rid of everything on the countertops,” Myers says. “Buyers don’t want to see your toothpaste or your knick-knacks.”

If you’re not sure what to remove, walk through your house with your Real Estate Agent and a big cardboard box and start packing as you go. Also remove anything that’s dirty or outdated. “Sometimes it’s as simple as taking down those awful curtains and having a good cleaning crew come in. Cleaning is always a good idea,” Myers says.

2. New Carpet and Fresh Paint

Fresh paint and new carpet may or may not be worth the investment; however the cost might be less than you’d think. Even an inexpensive paint job and commercial-grade carpet can make a huge difference. “It’s worth a few dollars to replace the carpet and to get the paint looking decent,” Myers says. “Otherwise, Buyers will expect you to cut your price and you’ll typically have to cut it a lot more than the cost of paint and carpet.”

3. Stage It Well

When choosing a Real Estate Agent, be sure to look for one who offers suggestions regarding how to best stage your home for showings. “Staging can go a long way if it’s done properly” Myers says. Making sure furniture is placed in the proper position can make rooms look larger and more inviting. Curb appeal counts, too. “Picking appropriate ground cover and plants and painting the front door is so important,” Myers says. “That initial impression really helps.”

4. Price To Sell

If your home isn’t perfect, you must price it accordingly, Myers says. “If you price slightly below the comparable listings, you’re making buyers feel it’s affordable, so they can put what’s needed into the property,” he explains. “More buyers mean the potential for multiple offers. Multiple offers yield a higher net result.” If your house needs major repairs, you can sweeten the deal by offering buyers a repair credit to subsidize the cost.

5. Agent Incentives

Another tip is to offer an attractive commission or bonus to the buyer’s real estate agent, Myers says. For example, your agent might put a note in the multiple-listing service that says, “$1,000 bonus to buyer’s agent if sold at asking price.” That creates an incentive for agents to show your house to buyers. “It gets buyers’ agents excited about selling the property,” Myers says.

Myers says neither a repair credit nor an agent incentive will overcome a too-high price. Still, these tactics could help if you and your agent want to try them.

6. Truthful Marketing

A tip that’s particularly important for a less-than-perfect home is to be honest in your marketing, disclosures and photographs, Myers says. Otherwise, buyers who want a home in prime condition may be disappointed and buyers who are open to repairs might not stop by to look at all.

“Give the pluses and defects,” Myers says, “Because the home inspector will find those issues and that will lead to renegotiation, or the home will come back on the market and the next buyer might not look at it because it fell out of escrow.”

7. Hire the Right Agent

A savvy Real Estate Agent can help you price your home, help stage it properly, recommend paint and carpeting contractors, etc. Marketing matters a lot as well.

“It’s important that an agent not cut corners with marketing even if a home needs to be fixed up,” Edwards says. “Find a good, local seasoned agent who’s willing to spend the money to make it shine and stand out.”
