How do you not pay to much for a home? You know what the homes should sell for. The best way to do that is to find similar and recently sold homes to compare the current homes for sale to. I will do that for you when the time is right. Right now let's look at Lakeland as a whole. In the 30 days prior to 08/01/2021 the median sales price for a home was $247,000 and over 450 homes sold.
Today's real estate market is a world removed from days gone by. Years ago you would walk by a real estate office and see listings stuck to the window like posters. Needless to say with the advent of the internet and modern phones those days are long gone. One of the many things that separates us from the typical agency or agent is our focus on technology. We derive all of our business from the internet and not mailings or those dreaded telephone marketers. If you have ever had your home not sell by the expiration of the contract you know what I mean.
The hard truth is this. Most real estate sales people simply list your home in the MLS and hope that they get to deal with incoming calls and emails about your home. They have no clue that the MLS sends the data out to nearly 1000 websites that each parse that data differently. You are on one of those sites right now. Unless you have maintained one of them you have no clue how to get the most out of them. Inputting data is key when you list a home. It can literally make a difference in whether a potential buyer sees your home or not. Improperly or incompletely filling out the information on a listing is very common and just the tip of the iceberg. This will keep a listing from selling just as much as improperly pricing one.
This is where we at Wendy Morris Realty are head and shoulders above all other brokerages in Lakeland Florida or the surrounding areas. Our websites are packed with useful data to attract and inform buyers to make sure they return again and again. Hundreds of pages of information on communities, shopping, local schools, parks and much more are right here at your fingertips. If you are looking for a hard to find property of if you are just interested in a specific street or community we can help there as well. Years of use with the local MLS system and searching has taught us well, and will serve you well.
Surveys have show the most annoying things people have experienced with real estate sales people is a lack of courtesy and an inability to reach them. Here are Wendy Morris Realty we pride ourselves on customer service. If you try to call me and I do not answer It is because I am on the phone. Normally as soon as I am finished and have taken any notes I return 100% of my calls within minutes. A past military background and parents that insisted on it have bread courtesy and respect for all into me. I am glad of it, and I expect the same when being served.
