Real-Estate Agents Move Mountains to Sell High-Altitude Homes

Q: What obstacles have you encountered while selling homes in the mountains?

Kristina Bergstand

Real estate broker, Compass in Lake Tahoe

I was showing a house under construction to some clients. There were contractors in the house working, but they had left their lunch in the living space. We walked in and it was not one bear, but three bears, in the house eating their lunch. Literally three huge bears, in the house. We screamed, we ran and jumped in the car. I think it was a mama and two cubs, but they were not small cubs. They were large.

Finally the contractors saw them somehow, or maybe heard us scream, and kind of shoed them out. They meandered out, one by one, and went on their merry way. It was crazy. In the middle of the day. We hung out and waited for them to leave and then we

Leading Realtors in Litchfield Park AZ: “For Sale By Owner” Sign Does Help Sell Easier – Press Release

It is time to sell a home. It does not matter the reason. Many chose to sell to upsize or downsize as the case may be. Regardless, signage is the best way to help move a property.

“Going to a local big box and getting a ‘For Sale By Owner’ sign is a perfect way to help advertise a home for sale. Most who may be interested in buying a home may pay closer attention because of a simple sign. They realize the opportunity of saving money because there is no commission to pay for an agent,” said Matt Caren one of the leading real estate agents of Litchfield Park, Arizona.

All signs should have a visible phone number, written clearly so potential buyers can call if they have an interest in viewing the home. This will help keep visitors from bad times or at strange hours.

Andrew Fortune is the owner and managing broker of Great Colorado Homes, a digital real estate brokerage in Colorado Springs, CO.

Right now, many real estate markets around the country are experiencing a lack of inventory. In some cases, the supply of homes for sale simply cannot keep up with the demand from homebuyers.

For example, in Colorado where I’m based, there was a 51% decrease in available single-family homes on the market this August, compared to the same time last year. That kind of shortage can cause panic-buying and quick sales.

If you’re in a market where homes are selling within minutes, you may be asking yourself if you really need a real estate agent to sell your home. It’s a question that needs to be asked from time to time. Why can’t you put your own home online and sell it without an agent? Maybe you
