There are only 2 reasons Maine real estate will or will not sell. Period.
1) Proper, realistic pricing in line with comparable properties. Considering real estate that has sold recently. And factoring in others property listings like your real estate currently on the market waiting to sell.
2) All out full throttle, far reaching, frequent real estate, local community marketing.
85% of Maine real estate buyers go on line to find property and area information. Just being "on" the Internet is not enough. Being everywhere to be easily found is. Twitter gets 190 million visitors a month. Facebook has over 750 million users. Over one billion "hits" a day happen on YouTube. These are just 3 of the 370+ social media platforms and counting. That is a lot of eyeballs, eardrums to tap in to with a Maine real estate message. Todays' Maine real estate buyer is not just local any longer.
Before settling in on a few properties, listings to look at, the area gets its tires kicked. Pretty hard and steady. On line first. Where the "sticks and bricks" is needs to be exposed, detailed after that. It all starts with attractive, fully detailed advertising, marketing. Boatloads of helpful images, copy, videos, maps to help them decide on this selecting this area.
What your Maine property is worth only selling to a limited local market is very different than if exposed many states, several time zones away. Internet marketing, social media web 2.0 platforms, blogs, videos, websites let you get the word out.
Otherwise you could have the best property, but it's like winking at a girl in the dark.
She does not know what you are doing. Poor results. You fail to get her attention, interest. And sometimes, the method sellers use are creative but not the actual value or near the listing price that should be marketed with in getting the property sold.
Secured by insured property you still hold a first mortgage on.
This avoids a local bank appraiser deciding the Maine property is not worth your asking price. And the more attractive the terms, the higher the price you can justify for your property. What does or does not need to be done to the listing before marketing determined too to avoid wasting money, time, resources.Mooers Realty would love the opportunity, the honor and priviledge of looking over your real estate deed.
