This is Doug Buenz with the 680 Homes Video Channel. Today we’re going to talk about a mistake that sellers should avoid. That is hiring an agent simply because they’re nice or they’re your friend. Look, your home is arguably one of the largest financial assets you have and selling this property is a very serious financial decision. Just because an agent is nice or drops by brownie recipes or pumpkins at Halloween does not qualify them to sell your home. A lot of times, sellers will choose to hire a friend, not because of the qualifications but because it’s a friend. The big problem with that scenario is that sometimes friends won’t tell you what you need to hear as a seller. They’re afraid to offend you. They don’t want to damage the friendship. They want you to like them so they’ll av...

Hi, I‚Äôm Doug Buenz. Welcome to the 680 Homes Video Channel. Today we‚Äôre going to talk about why you should do an open house.¬†Open houses are hit and miss propositions with a lot of my clients and sellers. However, here are the reasons that you should consider it.¬†¬†Number one ‚Äď and this might be the most important one. It creates the impression of activity for potential buyers. It creates with that particular buyer a sense that this is a hot property and that it may not last long. It creates emergency and the perception that this is a very desirable property. That‚Äôs definitely a benefit.¬†¬†The second benefit is it creates some buzz among your¬†neighbors¬†and friends. It‚Äôs positive in the sense that your neighbors and your friends are often your biggest advocates for your house. If they come...
