Pasadena home for sale - 436 South Craig Avenue

But, let me let you in on a little secret, this home and all of my Pasadena home listings are easy to show.  Yes... to sell a home in Pasadena or anywhere else in the country, a home buyer or their real estate agent will actually want to see it first.  I know... it's quite a surprise!  Seeing a home before writing a home purchase offer?  You'd think that it would be common sense. Unfortunately, a lot of sellers don't see the sense of making their homes available to view.

This week alone, my real estate team has tried to schedule 3 different showings for 3 different home buyers on 3 different homes.  All three home sellers had one excuse or another as to why they would not be able to show their home.  One home seller was pregnant and had dogs.  The other just wanted to take time off from showing their home.  The third didn't realize how stressful it would be to put their home on the market and was tired of constant showings.

I don't know if it's lack of education by real estate agents, but seriously, if you are a home seller and your home has not sold yet, ask yourself, "How easy is it to show my home?"  If you are making it difficult, it just will not sell.  Or when it will, it will sell for a lot less.

The secret to selling a home quickly and for the most amount of money is exposure.  Getting as many eyeballs on your home as possible!  Make sure your home shows well, is priced well and marketed to the largest home buyer pool possible found on the internet!  AND, the biggest secret of all, ALLOW ACCESS TO YOUR PASADENA HOME!
