The Gate in Frisco

3 Day House Sale?


3 Day House Sale?

If you’ve sold or selling your home you probably know what CSS is.

If you don’t – it’s the Centralized Showing System that schedules all your appointments for other agents to show your home.

They track all your appointments and send auto emails to agents that show your property for instant feedback. (if your agent has that feature set up)

You can also send listing announcements about price changes or circumstances to all the agents that have previously shown your property.

Yesterday, I received an announcement for a 3 Day Sale on a Property in Frisco at one of the Stonebriar communities that, Still hasn’t sold…

It’s like a Macy’s 3 Day Sale! No kidding…

We aren’t selling clothes or appliances here, the sale goes like this: $20,000 will be taken off the list price on Friday, Saturday and Sunday – ONLY!

After that the price goes back up, Does that make you want to buy it?

Don’t you think they will take the $20,000 off after Sunday?

YEP! They will.

Better to go ahead and take another cut and leave it, the more inline the price is the better chances of your home selling quicker. Once you give it up you can’t take it back – be curious to see what kind of signage they have for the event. Sellers and agents are getting very creative now, aren’t they?
