Why are most Realtors® so reluctant to utilize such a readily available tool and increase their income by at least 10%?

It simply baffles me.

There "IT" is, much like a gleaming gemstone, sitting right in front of Realtors®, yet most of you turn your back, and adopt an attitude of "If it isn't broken, don't fix it".

It is "broken" if you are making less than your full potential!

This is much like continuing to attempt to force a nail into a stud by hand, when there is a perfectly good hammer within reach.

Must I provide you with more blunt comparisons?

One of the answers could be "because they are shhort sales, and there is no guaranteee of anything, and the Seller has no money and interest to put it into the home, as they do not get a penny no matter how high the price is.

They are underwater.

As for "normal" sales, then... wait a minute, when was the last time I had a "normal" sale?

Thank you for your response, Jon!

And, I completely agree with you that short-sales are a whole different animal altogether.

I am a Professional Home Stager in Canada, where our market is quite different, and product is moving.

I certainly apologize if I have offended anyone or ruffled any feathers.

But, you are on the right track when you assume I am referring to "normal sales".

Take good care!

I w ould just love to have more "normal" sales, you are correct. And I completely missed that you are in Canada. I saw that, but it did not register that your market has no short sales

Good luck
