6 Epic Ways to Bungle Selling a Home

When your selling a home and it is done right is almost like art. This article talks about the mistakes people make when selling. Here are some of my top picks out of the 6.

"1. You priced your house too high
Even when you’re in a seller’s market (where inventory is in short supply and buyers are bidding up a storm for homes), you should set a reasonable listing price for your house. Unfortunately, “some people have unrealistic expectations of the market,” says Seth Lejeune, a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway in Collegeville, PA."
Even with a sellers market the home has to be listed at the right price. Today's buyers still want a good deal and if the home is priced at the market price it sells. For example a home I was showing to buyers had been on the market a while. The sellers had just replaced the roof and did some updates in the home. The home was overpriced when they first listed it and when they lowered the price with the new updates it was priced right! The buyers did not put an offer in until it was to late...we are still looking. Homes priced right sale quickly.

"You skimped on professional photos

You can have the most sought-after home on the block, but if you don’t take good listing photos you may have trouble even getting buyers in the door. Hence, it’s worth hiring a professional real estate photographer to snap pictures instead of taking them yourself on your smartphone"
Pictures tell a thousand words and need to be done by professionals, In today's online presence people look at the home first online. When they set up an appointment to actually see the home it's almost like a second showing. Pictures are crucial and must be done correctly for online real estate lookers. We have an excellent professional that does all our pictures. 
"You stuck around during showings
Having the seller present during a showing or open house can be a huge turnoff to a home buyer, says Jennifer Baxter, associate broker at Coldwell Banker RMR in Suwanee, GA."
Could not agree more to much emotion and hearing what people like and do not like about a home is not always easy to hear. As an agent I know how to deal with the do not likes. Buyers sometimes say that to create a cost that would give them a better price on the home. I sold a property in Lakewood and had 4 buyers I personally interviewed each and choose the one with the less do not likes. The closing went smoothly and the buyers and seller were very happy. 
"You let your ego get in the way
Some home sellers get so fixated on getting their full list price, they simply turn down offers that are below the bar. But that closed-minded approach can have big repercussions."
Your home is worth what someone is welling to pay for it. The market and your agent CMA gives every seller a good idea what their home is worth. Do not get offended by any offers that seem to low just counter and you might be surprised and get your home sold. I have countered on a lot of lower offers and the buyers ended up purchasing the home. 
Need your home sold FAST! I'm Brett and I market your home like it was on steroids.

What You Really Need To Know Before You Pick A Real Estate Agent

This article comes from by Ann Brenoff. I like this article because it separates Real Estate agents and what they do and know. Being a full time real estate agent requires a lot of time and effort to get transactions done. Don't get an agent that does not put in the time for your real estate needs.

"Being a real estate agent involves more than just knowing the combination to the lock box. It means having sales and marketing know-how, the diplomatic skills to close a deal and the ability to represent a client’s interests above all else"

The key to all real estate transactions is that they close. That means that the Real Estate agent that are representing you, needs to have all the skills above. For example I have a very difficult home closing today that requires a lot of my time. My weeks can be many hours a week.....Make sure your agent is a full time agent. By the way the home is closing and the transaction will get done.

Working fewer than 20 hours a week in real estate sales delivers a median gross income of $8,550 a year, according to the 2016 member profile of the National Association of Realtors. In comparison, working 60 hours or more a week produces a median gross income of $93,400, the NAR report shows. The more an agent works, the more transactions they close and the more experience they get."

I have personally closed 100's of transactions and work 60+ hours a week. Home closings can be difficult if your agent does not have the experience. Had a closing last month that included two homes. My seller also became a buyer and need the homes closed at the same time. The night before the closing the title company had a glitch in getting a signor out for my clients. I quickly got on the phone with the title company and resolved the matter. Both homes closed the next day and my clients moved into their new home.

It takes a lot of transactions to know how to handle all the ups and downs of a home transaction.  Dealing with an agent that has few of them can really hurt your chances on getting the best deal.

"While some part-time agents do regularly close deals, Alex Newell, a loan officer with GMH Mortgage Services in Nashua, New Hampshire, advises asking potential agents how many transactions they closed in the previous 12 months. “Make sure it’s at least one a month,” Newell said, which is what the National Association of Realtors says is on par with the national average. "

I do 3-4 transactions a month. Part time agents are very hard to get a hold of on a listing. With today's hot real estate market you need an agent that answers the phone. I received a call on a home last night while I was bowling with some friends. I answered the call and dealt with a client who need some information.

To wrap this up make sure your real estate agent doesn't take weekends off from the phone and they should be available to answer questions on your biggest investment of most peoples lives. Getting homes purchased and sold includes answering the phone.

Sunday Brunch: Time Management for Entrepreneurs

Being a real estate agent you have to have time management to have any time. This book by Dan Kennedy really opened my eyes to some time wasting ventures I have been practicing. This book is well worth the money and makes you think about your daily schedule and how you will manage it. The material creates more time for you and your life. 

When your in business you need to save as much time as possible. For example I always have my office with me in my SUV. It is in a backpack that actually has a battery charger pack built in it. When I am between appointments and have a long drive home I will get in my back seat and do some work. I usually stop and get some coffee before I start. 

Having the internet, computer and charger I can get work done and save time and gas doing it. 

Screening calls is another great time saver that can be time suckers. If I am busy I screen a lot of calls that are not really business and wait until the day is done before I return them. I personally can get 20+ calls a day and not all of them are business. 

I have a Manuel scheduler to put down appointments. I have tried all the state of the art scheduling systems, but they did not work for me. Manuel Schedulers are also great tools at tax time for mileage and dinning expenses. You can always look back and see all the appointments you had for the year. I keep them every year and they are fun to look at sometimes and great history resources. Basically a journal of your life.

Time is a commodity that you cannot get back. Paul Simon said it best we are all just slip sliding away. You have limited time use it well. 

Save time buying or selling a home I'm Brett and I have sold 100's of homes like yours.

Best Real Estate And This Weeks Market Tips

This week in the Cleveland real estate market has been brisk and creating a new way to look at real estate. A lot of investors are looking a new builds to create the amount of real estate they want in their portfolio. With the inventory being at a all time low new homes are needed.

As a Season Realtor my Job is to help make sure my eye is always on the current real estate market and what needs are in it for buyers and sellers.

My team had put together engineers and builders to give an investor another option and be able to build new homes. We just purchased a lot in Chagrin Falls Ohio to build on, the investor purchased the lot for a great price and will build and sell a new home.

With the inventory so low investors need new strategies to create homes for their portfolio.

Also matching listing with potential buyers is also a art. I chatted with an agent that had a client with some needs and could not find the right home. We have some new listings that are coming on the market that will fit their clients needs. Hope to have both sold shortly.

We also run into off market real estate that we purchase or offer to investors and our buyers. We are closing on a nice little home in Bedford Monday. Need to sell a home you do not want, we help you do that with options. You can list the home or we will pay cash, either way it is your choose.

Getting 4 new listings that are coming on the market. Setting up a detailed marketing plan for each one of them. It is crucial to know where buyers come from. For example is a family area, Millennial area, senior area, and or a city living area. Knowing those criteria items can really help your marketing and getting the maximum potential buyers seeing our listings .

Lastly EXP Realty is a online real estate company on steroids....I joined it because of it being a agent owned company. There are continue classes on cutting edge marketing and making real estate move a lot faster. With my current marketing company it really makes our listings market on steroids.

Homes snapped up quickly in hot market​


This report comes from by Linda Martz that talks about the hot real estate market and it's not even spring yet.


" Sellers now clearly have the upper hand negotiating home prices in north central Ohio — with no sign that may change any time soon, area realtors say."


Homes are getting harder to buy easier to sell, but spring is upon us and there should be more buyer options in this sellers market. Homes create wealth for families and is probably their biggest investment and greatest profit.


With a couple last night that are selling their home and the proceeds will pay cash for a smaller home.  They will not have debt and have financial freedom from a mortgage. That is because they have a nice equity position to do that with from the sell of their home.


Selling your home is easier today than it was yesterday. If you are looking to downsize from you current home. it is a very good time to do that. I will personally be selling me and Lori's home this spring to purchase a more suitable home for our needs. All the proceeds will almost pay for our new home.


What are your current needs and do you need to downsize into a better suited home for your needs? Now is a great time to do that.


"“We have the best real estate market we have seen in a long, long time,” said Peter Haring, who runs Haring Realty in Mansfield. “It’s certainly much different than it was two or three years ago.”"

Now is a great time to sell your home, move or if you have a property that is leased and you no longer want to be a landlord. SELL SELL SELL

Home Economy & Politics Economic Report

This report is from by Jeffry Bartash.

 "Permits to build new homes also hit a 10½-year high, rising 7.4% to an annual rate of 1.4 million."

As I have mentioned in some of my previous blogs home starts have been needed for the last 3 years. The prior 10 years home builds were non existent because of  regulations that cost builders a ton. That is why you almost only saw luxury high end homes being built, the regulations cost to much for anything else to be built.

Big picture: Housing starts are 7% higher compared to one year ago, reflecting a vibrant real estate scene that shows no sign of slacking off against the backdrop of the strongest economy in years."

"The biggest problem? Demand for housing has continued to outstrip the number of properties available for sale, pushing prices higher and frustrating many would-be buyers."
Pent up demand for buyers is higher than I have ever seen with limited inventory. Buyers are having a hard time finding homes and still believing it's a sellers market. I was talking to a potential buyer that wanted to look at homes and get a great deal. That can be done I said, but you will have to be flexible on the homes layout and rehab needs.
For example if a home has dated carpet, kitchen, bathrooms, and colors. Then you can probably get a good deal on a property. One of my recent clients purchased a home that was dated and got a great deal. He and his family picked out the colors with our interior decorator, installed new carpet and the place looks fabulous. After all that they still had a great equity position to boot.
"“To put the figure more in perspective, the 2017 average for single-family starts was 849K, so January’s level represents a continuing solid uptrend, especially considering that weather may have held activity down somewhat last month. The single driving fundamental in the housing market remains that demand is outstripping supply, so upside surprises on housing starts are just what the doctor ordered.”"
With the new lending laws and pent up demand I do not see any slow down in real estate. Stock Brokers will tell you the rising interest rate which is still 4.75% is going to hurt the housing market. I remember when interest rates were 21%, which ages me YIKES! Real Estate will continue to boom and homes will be built to try and keep up with demand.

Marketing is Everything when it comes to selling Real Estate 


Marketing can solve all the problems in selling basically anything. When it comes to real estate there area a few things that we have that most other Realtors do not Marketing on Steroids.


1. We market you property all over Social Media, I know that when an agent adds a home to the MLS you get some social media exposure from that. We get that plus we target potential buyers that are looking for homes in your market. Today a lot of buyers look online and call a Realtor to see a home, that is why having a targeted social media campaign can make all the difference in the world when selling a home. Targeted marketing on social media can make all the difference in short and long days on the market. 


My last listing I did not have to do my brokers open because the home sold before that event. The buyer came from social media.


2. We have the top rated real estate Blog on Click here to view. Our blog has gotten almost 1/2 million hits. We run are listings and have a newsletter that goes out to 100's of people that opt in. Click here to view our newsletter  


3. We do videos and they go everywhere including our own YouTube channel that has over 2000 videos on it. Video marketing is crucial in today's selling environment, and they need to be done correctly. We have professionals we pay to do every home we list.

4. We Create a website for your home that you can share with others. We create websites for all our properties with all the information, pictures and videos on them to view. The website even has a flyer that can be downloaded or emailed.  


5. Pictures can tell a thousand words they say......we hire a professional that can take the pictures and make a home look gorgeous. 


6. We are a Zillow premier agent and get are listings promoted through Zillow,, Trulia and also a member of These are more venues that potential buyers can also find a home to purchase at. You want to be at the top of that list.


7. Your home also goes on 7 of our own personal websites that get over 30,000 hits a month. Exposure is everything and that is what great marketing does. 


8. We answer are phones when it rings. That is another important factor in selling a home picking up the phone. Yesterday I was busy on some personal stuff and my phone rang. I answered it and set up a showing appointment for this week on one of my listings. Saturday and Sunday are important and Realtors phones need to be answered. Call an agent on the weekend and see how many do not answer their phones, you would be shocked!


There you have it marketing a home is not hard when you have the right Listing Agent...When listing a home make sure your agent has a detailed marketing plan and knows how to market and answer phones. 


If you need to sell a home I'm Brett call 216-703-5740 EXP Realty Ohio and 602-363-6551 EXP Realty Arizona...Home Marketing on Steroids
