Why Is My Nashville Home Not Selling – That’s the question I had from a caller who was not my client, but had talked to me in the past. I was driving down Mack Hatcher parkway at the time, and didn’t have the luxury of checking the listing on my computer, so I couldn’t really help him even if I wanted to.
My first question was why did he list the property with someone else, and then call me when it didn’t sell? He really didn’t have any problem telling me that he was promised a much lower commission by another realtor, and he thought that would mean that he could keep more of the sales price, of course he didn’t check to see if that was true, he just assumed that the other realtor was correct. I would have been able to list the property at the same commission rate that his current realtor was charging, but he would have had a much better internet exposure, as well as better pictures from a professional photographer, and post cards to all the neighbors to let their friends know it was available.
If he had listed his house with me, I wouldn’t be writing this post because the house would have probably sold the first week it was on the market, since that seems to be the trend with all of my listings in Franklin and Brentwood. I even sold a condo in Bellevue in 3 days just last month, and I consider Bellevue one of the more difficult areas in Nashville to sell a home. Selling your Nashville home isn’t that difficult if you have a plan and you don’t expect more than the market will give.
He admitted that so far, everything he was told, turned out to be false, so here he is trying to find out if I can help him tell his realtor what to do. I told him that our code of ethics prevents me from talking about it while it’s listed with another realtor. He has my number, lets see what happens.
