My Destin Listing Agent Doesn't Show My Home

Sometimes, as a real estate agent, you don’t hear what consumers really say. Well, I did the other day. I was at a friend’s home and the neighbor across the street, “Marcy”, starting talking about her move. Her Destin Florida home had been for sale for months, and it seems she wasn’t happy.

Marcy said, “My real estate agent does nothing! She has never shown the home herself! All she does is call me once a week and ask for a price reduction.”

What’s wrong with this picture? I bet this real estate agent was probably working hard to sell her listing. The problem was-- she failed to explain that to Marcy.

So what’s the first thing you, as a listing agent, might explain to a new seller? You probably won’t personally bring the buyer for their home. Statistically, another real estate agent will. (The median number of their own listings Realtors sell is "one", according to the 2010 NAR Member Profile, compared to selling four of other's listings.) The result you seek is the sale of their home, no matter who sells it.

The next thing to explain is what you do for marketing. Marcy didn’t think her agent was doing a thing. That could be totally false. Her agent may have been a marketing guru. But Marcy didn’t know. So, tell your sellers what you do. What types of advertising, how often? How else do you ensure there will be a sale? Let your seller know you are working, even if you aren’t showing.

What did I do? I said a good word for Marcy's agent, whom I didn’t know. I told her that statistically agents don’t sell many of their own listings, and that her agent was probably working very hard behind the scenes. And I wished her the best of luck!

It's Wendy!

Crestview and Navarre Florida VA Compromise Sale - New Relocation Assistance

If you are a borrower with a VA home loan in Crestview, Navarre, Fort Walton Beach, Florida and surrounding towns, and are having trouble paying your mortgage, there is good news for you. The Veterans Administration recently announced a change to the VA Compromise Sale program.

What is a VA Compromise Sale? Similar to a short sale, a VA Compromise Sale (also called VA Compromise Claim or Offer) is used when a VA borrower can no longer afford to make mortgage payments, must sell, and the mortgage balance is more than the what the property is worth. If you qualify, you may sell your home at fair market value. You will not be obligated to pay back the shortfall to your lender if got your loan after December 31, 1989. (To use your full VA entitlement in the future to buy another home, you would have to pay the VA back its portion of the claim).

What is the new Veterans Administration announcement? After you are approved for a VA Compromise Short Sale, you will now receive $1500 in relocation assistance at closing. The Veterans Administration noted in its announcement that it wanted to be proactive in helping Veterans and competitive with the Home Affordable Modication Program. They also noted that VA Compromise Sales leave homes in better condition than foreclosure, which is a cost-benefit to the loan servicer.

This new VA relocation assistance program ends on January 1, 2014.

If you are a VA borrower in Crestview, Navarre or Fort Walton Beach, Florida, and are trying to avoid foreclosure due to hardship, contact an experienced VA Compromise agent to help you.
