Dyersburg,Tennessee home sales doing well
I showed property everyday last week and had a very hectic schedule. A word of advice to you homeowners reading this blog:
Have your house ready to show at all times.
I was with a couple from Virginia on Thursday and we were driving around Camelot subdivision looking at homes and we drove past one they really wanted to see and the realtor told me it would be a day or two before we could look. My clients had a 6pm flight out of Memphis that afternoon.I knew of a FSBO very similiar to the one we were denied access to so I called that owner and he said give me 15 minutes to get ready. Wouldn't you know it, we all fell in love with that house and I wrote up an offer 3 days later that we negotiated to an agreement. Timing is everything in our business and if that listed home had been available for viewing I suspect we would have purchased that one.
Now a word of advice to you potential home buyers in our market, employ a good professional realtor that knows the market. Sign a buyers agent agreement with him or her and then tell that agent exactly what you want to buy. The buyers agreement allows that agent to search for homes including for sale by owners. My Virginia clients now have under contract a very nice home in a great area of town.
Jackie Keeling(one of my top producing agents) called me Saturday morning to tell me he was at the office and the phones were really ringing. I went to the office and helped him for a while. Both he and I are scheduled to leave next week to attend the Tennessee Association of Realtors fall convention in Destin,Florida. Both of us are too busy to leave but we made a committment to our board of realtors to attend. Jackie is our 2007 board President and I am a Tennessee Association of Realtors Director representing our board. However, we have a team in place that will continue serving our customers and clients. While I am in Destin, I plan to interview realtors from across the state to see how their real estate market is doing and my next post will be about market conditions across the state.
