As of today there are 1216 residential homes/condos on the market in Antioch, California. Of this nunber, 1096 are single family detached homes.

What is a good strategy for increasing listings while having increasing church responsibilities?I am very active in my church from Sunday school teacher, choir leader, intercessory prayer, and nursery worker.  I haven't taken a lot of listings because of my minimal availablity for open houses on Sundays.  I have two Sundays a month where I am not doing a church work outside of being a saint and I can have an open house in the afternoon.  First service lets out at 11 am.I want more listings but I also want to be fair to my seller.  I have been working with buyers mostly. It is a better advantage to have listings because the Realtor is in control of any market.Any advice?

You will be the envy of the block if you purchase this home. With 4 bedrooms configured to not be a box, and 2.5 baths, you will enjoy sitting in your beautifully landscaped backyard watching the sun set or the sun rise. You really have to see this home.Linda Walling-StoneRealtor Coldwell Banker Coon & McCreary925-969-0616www.LindaWallingStone.com
