Vancouver Real Estate – Sewing a Silk Purse

Realtor Unzipped

The declining market is showing it’s cracks. The pressure is mounting for some Realtors®. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard or seen bold laments made by a Realtor®. Reaction to such statements might be that we live in interesting times and such musings are vagaries of the moment.

The Moment

Frustrated, by the unreasonable dreams of a seller some just have to shout out. Look at this video by Ian Watt entitled Here’s a $1000, Don’t Waste My Time.

Is it a blast of steam? Most certainly, but it won’t cost you $1000 to click the off button.

Sewing Class

Does this style of shouting constitute good or bad marketing. That’s for Mr. Watt and you to judge. I’m just saying that Realtors® can do a lot to market your home successfully. There are however, limits to everything so when expectations are contrary to market conditions one result may be a clash with best intention. Realtors® know a lot about selling homes, they just can’t make silk purses!
