Greetings from Jeanne Feenick's Real Estate Bunker
Sharing what I know with those I serve to empower success!
 Life under the rainbow - Business expanding to include the shore!
If you are thinking about buying a home at the shore, please allow me to help you explore the possibility of Long Beach Island and its adjacent communities.

We bought our shore home on Long Beach Island the year our youngest was born, that is nearly 29 years ago! WOW, how time flies when you find the place that makes your heart sing.

Now we are marking an exciting chapter in our lives having just closed on a new home on the very same bay side lane. Like I said, when you find that special place, you are best to stay put!

With plans underway to spend more time at the shore, my real estate business will expand to include the Long Beach Island area I love and know so well. I have first hand knowledge of the communities on the island, each one having its own vibe. And since we renovated our first home and built our new home I have experience with local builders and resources.

Now is a great time to get ahead of the curve incidentally. It was five years ago or so that my husband was down in November fishing with a buddy and saw the for sale sign on the lot on our lane. Had he not been there, we would not have known and that lot would be the site of someone else's dream home.

Rest assured -- my business homebase will remain unchanged, but my focus will grow to include the shore. So many people I meet on the island have come from our area. With all the years we've spent on LBI, I'm surprised it has taken me so long to add this to my repertoire. Perhaps it was the experience of building a new home which added a new perspective to my LBI experience and broadening the reserve of knowledge I have to share.

The featured photo was actually taken on closing day! I like to think of it as a premonition of great things to come! I hope you'll join me on the journey!

 Your reviews matter!
No doubt about it, my business depends on your positive reviews. In my last newsletter I shared that I was so psyched to reach the 100 review mark on Zillow but I seem to have stalled since then. To stay competitive, I need to grow that number and I'm asking for your help to do so. If you haven't already, please send me a little positive ju ju in the form of a 5 star Zillow review. The link below takes you to my Zillow profile where you can scroll down to read the reviews and add yours.

 Explaining Right Pricing
You've spent months preparing your home for sale. You are satisfied that the agent you have selected will present your home effectively to reach the broadest audience. The professional photographs are taken and the marketing copy written. You've got two of the three P's right, preparation and presentation, now it is time to tackle the third, price.

There is a saying, "nothing cures a pricing problem". I am coming to you from deep inside my real estate bunker to tell you that this is true. If you overprice your home you will negate all the positives of preparation and presentation. In fact, overpricing is the single biggest mistake a seller can make. It results in increased time on market and a lower sales price.

Regardless of market, price point or time of the selling season, there is a direct correlation between days on market and sale price. The greatest interest in a property is during the first 30 days. This is measurable by online listing views/saves and the all important buyer showing (if they don't come, it won't sell). Both reach their high during that 30 days and then fall like a stone. You want to be priced correctly during this window of opportunity to achieve the highest sale price. If you are not seeing success, adjust quickly.

As time goes on, your property becomes old news. Buyers move on, and even with price adjustments, you may not get regain their attention.

The take away - price right out of the gate to get the highest possible price for your home. If you miss the mark, then adjust quickly, remembering the 30 day rule.

This is not my opinion, it is a fact that plays out over and over, with buyers gaining the equity sellers lose through overpricing.

Please reach out to me if you'd like to learn more about pricing and marketing timing. Together we'll drill down into the specifics so that you can benefit from my knowledge and expertise, and learn from the experience of your neighbors, both positive and negative.
