Why is my house not selling?

According to the national Association of realtors, the biggest complaint that people have with their agent, is that they don’t have communication from their agent after the listing contract is signed. This is the same comment that I hear in our local market.
As a result of the knowledge of this unmet need, I have designed my marketing plan for my sellers to include a regular communication between myself and the seller. In Southeast Manitoba, the rural real estate listings may take some time to sell. “Why is my house not selling?”is what the seller wants to know.

My weekly feedback or report to my sellers may include the following:
-the amount of hits their listing is getting on different websites
-recent comparable sales in the area
-where their listing is being advertised
-recent feedback from other agents that have shown the property

In return, I can keep up to date with sellers. I need to know when they are unavailable or gone for weekends or holidays. I need to know if they have made changes to the house.

If you trust me with your listing, you will know what is going on along the way.

Mirror mirror on the wall….

This morning, I looked in the mirror and to my surprise my skin looked younger than it ever has before. The two lines between my eyebrows, that had been there since my mid-20s, have disappeared. I couldn’t help but admire myself.

So many thoughts went through my head. Thoughts like, what have I been eating different? Had I stumbled across some miracle?

Just like that, I could feel my youthful energy returning to me.

Then, I put on my glasses.

How we see ourselves has a direct impact on how we feel!

Obviously, I must see myself as funny, because I continually make crazy remarks, even if I am the only one entertained by my thoughts! I see myself as loved, accepted, and significant. I see myself as intuitive, passionate, engaged, and capable of influencing others. These things matter more to me than the lines that are multiplying on my face.

Let’s be careful not to focus on appearance, performance, or shortcomings. Let’s find our strengths and utilize them!
