On Friday, Gordon (my husband) and I had lunch with my former Managing Broker, named Paul Goldenbogen, who was the Real Estate Commissioner for the State of Colorado. Usual between us, we catch up on our friendship as well as the dealings about the local real estate business.
Besides the open discussions about strategies and the sharing of experiences, our conversation ventured towards the subject about distressed properties. I agree with Paul about short sales, foreclosures and bank-owned statuses. These properties aren't distressed. Colorado Springs Realtors must recognize that distressed people are trying to cope with monstrous-sized problems with perfectly good properties.
As of late, when consulting with my selling clients, I’m encouraging my sellers to openly declare their intentions about what they’d really like to see throughout the entire selling process. I’ve spent additional time to really hear their voice, especially those underwater with their homes, to really help address the most relevant issues about their home selling experience. While I can’t solve every problem, it helps to empower my sellers to take more control themselves, even if losses are part of the Colorado Springs Real Estate process.
