Why do some Myrtle Beach properties expire or fail to sell?

by Jerry Pinkas

how long after a real estate contract expires can an owner sell privately

It’s a classic scenario: family gets excited to sell their house, the family finds and hires the first realtor they see online, realtor says he/she will sell their house quickly and for top dollar, the house sits on the market for months, contract with realtor expires, house fails to sell. Has this scenario played out for you or someone you know? Do you ever find yourself wondering why some houses sell quickly and for top dollar, while other comparable houses sit on the market for weeks and weeks and do not sell? Well, as you may have guessed by now, that is exactly what we are going to be talking about in today’s blog post. We are going to be discussing why properties expire or fail to sell, and what you can do if you or someone you know finds themselves in this scenario in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC.

what happens when a real estate contract expires

What does it mean if a property listing expires?

Before we jump into the meat and potatoes of today’s post, we first wanted to cover some basics. What does it mean if a property listing expires? It means that the property has not been sold by the end of the time period stipulated in the listing contract that was set and agreed upon between the listing real estate agent and the seller. In our blog posts, we talk quite frequently about how important it is to have a good real estate agent by your side from beginning to end. And this is another reason why it is so crucial for you to do your homework on who you are locking arms with and trusting to sell your home. The time period set in the listing contract can go by very quickly if you are not working with the right person who is educated and driven, and working day in and day out to find the right buyer for your home.

How long do I have to wait to sell my Myrtle Beach home?

What are the main reasons why properties expire or fail to sell?

There are a few main reasons why properties expire or fail to sell, and the first one we are going to touch on is the price. Overpriced homes are the number one reason why homes fail to sell, and unfortunately is one of the biggest deterrents to buyers and having a successful transaction. The price may have been set by an overzealous real estate agent, or simply because the owner believes their home to be worth more than it actually is. But it is important to understand that even the most talented agent and sophisticated marketing tactics will have a very difficult time bringing an eager buyer to the table with a home that is priced beyond what it should be. The listing will be doomed to begin with and all the advertising and marketing used to promote the property will prove to be fruitless, along with a lot of wasted energy and time. So settling the right price on the property from the beginning is crucial. 

The next reason why properties expire or fail to sell can arise from picking the wrong realtor to help sell your house/condo. Again, we have covered this topic numerous times throughout different blog posts because it is vital to understand when looking to sell your home. And we realize how tricky it can seem to find and hire on the right realtor that is going to work hard in your best interest from beginning to end. But choosing the right agent can mean selling your house quickly and for top dollar, and choosing the wrong agent can mean a lot of wasted time and energy, as well as your property still not sold once the contract with the agent is up. Which scenario would you rather have?

 

At this point, you may be asking yourself how do you know if you are picking the right real estate. And one way you can be confident in your decision is asking the realtor for a list of reviews from past clients they have worked with. This will help you be able to get a feel for how the agent works and what other people, who are just like you, have experienced with this realtor. You also want to look for a few key characteristics in the agent such as honesty and dedication, as well as the success rate of the agent on selling homes, how large their network is and how well they know the area. Do not get fooled by agents that tell you things because they know you want to hear them – make sure you are doing your homework to ensure that the agent is someone that you will be successful with.

Lastly, poor real estate marketing can attribute to a property expiring or failing to sell. This goes back to what we just talked about with finding the right real estate agent. If your property does not get the proper marketing and attention it deserves, it is not going to get in front of the right people to buy it. It is easy to just upload the listing online, but the right realtor will really know how to push and market the property so it is appealing and alluring to other buyer agents and potential buyers. Things that should be standard in this regard include incredible photography of the property, stunning video tours, and detailed descriptions that highlight the home’s best features.

Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agent Reviews

by Jerry Pinkas

Top Real Estate Agents in Myrtle Beach SC

And can you blame them? Not only does Myrtle Beach, SC offer some of the most stunning beaches you can find, but the temperate weather, affordable living, and endless entertainment make the area hard to resist. And while many people would love to live here year round, there are many people that make their way to Myrtle Beach, SC throughout the year to enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer. It really is a tourist’s paradise and a hard destination to resist when planning a vacation! 

 

Whether you are looking to sell your current home, buy your forever home, or looking for a second vacation home in Myrtle Beach, SC, one of the most important things you can do is to find a real estate agent that is knowledgeable, hardworking and has a proven track record of success. Who you trust to help you purchase a home or condo can make all the difference in your experience and ultimately your success in the process. Myrtle Beach real estate agents are everywhere, but how do you know that you have the right real estate professional that is going to answer all of your questions, negotiate the best deal, help you purchase or sell your home and be working in your best interest every step of the way? Well, as you may have guessed, that is exactly what we are going to be talking about in today’s blog post. If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell in Myrtle Beach, SC, today’s topic is one you do not want to miss!

 

Why should I be picky about which real estate agent I choose to work with?

This is a great question and one that once you understand the answer, it can make all the difference in how you purchase and/or sell your homes now and in the future. Your real estate agent is someone that represents you and your best interests during the buying/selling process. And since many people do not fully understand all the ins and outs of the real estate world, they look to their agent to help answer questions that arise, guide them in decision making, trusting that they are negotiating in their best interest and properly completing all documents. And while it may sound like the agent has a big job in the overall process, it is because they do. And that is exactly why you want to make sure that you have the right person in your corner.

Some people think that it does not make a difference who your real estate agent is and may hire on the first person they meet. But just take a second and think about this: If you have an agent that does not know the area well, does not work hard for their clients and is inexperienced in negotiating, there is a pretty fair chance that you, as the client, will not get the best possible deal when buying or selling your home. And since buying a home is likely to be one of the largest purchases you make in your lifetime, why would you leave it to just anyone. You could end up overpaying for a home, or worse, make a terrible purchase and end up with a money pit. A good real estate agent will tell you the good, the bad and the ugly with any property no matter how much potential commission is on the line.

What traits should I be looking for in a real estate agent?

There are a few important traits that you want to be sure to keep an eye out for when looking to hire a real estate agent. First, you want to make sure that your real estate agent has a successful track record. You may want to look at any online reviews the real estate has and ask for references from past clients. This will really help you get a better idea of how the agent works and what you can expect if you were to work with them. Next, you want someone who is honest and who will always work in your best interest. The worst feeling is having to second guess if your real estate agent is giving you advice based on what is best for you or if they are working in their own best interest. Lastly, you want a real estate agent who knows the area inside and out, and who has a solid network of people in their corner.

How to Find Top Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agents – Myrtle Beach Realtors

How to Find Top Myrtle Beach Real Estate Agents – Myrtle Beach Realtors

            Are you thinking about making an investment by buying real estate? An experienced real estate agent will help finding the perfect property for you to become successful. Finding a good real estate agent / broker is essential to enjoying a painless real estate transaction. The saying is "20% of the agents do 80% of the business," and it is true. The question is how can you find a good real estate agent? The more knowledge, experience, resources, and ability your real estate agent has the bigger the advantage you are going to have. Most real estate agents stay in business because satisfied clients refer them to friends, family, neighbors and coworkers. Ask the people around you who they have used and ask them to describe their experiences with this real estate agent. Successful agents make customer satisfaction their number one priority and put their customers' needs before their own. Try to find an agent who goes above and beyond her responsibilities.

 First, you have to look for a real estate agent that specializes on what you are looking for whether is an ocean front condo or a single family home. This means you have to do some research to find the perfect agent for you. You can do some research by simply surfing the web. Google the top real estate companies in your area, go to those Web sites and look up profiles of individual agents at offices near you or near the area you are looking to buy. Agents will have articles or blogs in the web about new opportunity or news that can help you. You can learn about the agent by reading their articles. Also, pay attention to the listing signs in your neighborhood and neighborhoods near you. Make note of the day they go up and when the sold sign appears. Not only that when you see the same agent sign up in different neighborhood a good reason why so many people use them. The next step would be to interview potential real estate agents before deciding on whom to hire. Things you should ask about would be their marketing strategy, what separates them from the rest of the competition, their average list price to sale price radio, references, and if there’s anything you should know that you haven’t asked. Pay close attention to how the real estate agent answers this question because there is always something you need to know, always. You want the agent to take time with you, to make sure you feel comfortable and secure with their knowledge and experience. The agent should know how to listen and how to counsel you, how to ask the right questions to find out what she needs to know to better serve you. You wouldn’t work with any agent, and a good agent is just as selective about their clients. The real estate agent will to interview you too to find out what kind of property you are looking for, price range and to understand your needs.
