Are you a listed buyer? The secret to finding your Dream Home

We all know what a listed home is. When a homeowner wants to sell their home they list it with a realtor. Confused coupleThe realtor then markets the home to potential buyers by puting a for sale sign in the yard and posting it online to places like zillow, trulia, realtor.com and facebook but what is a listed buyer.

If you have been searching for a home online you probably have noticed that homes are selling very quickly, you probably may have tried to schedule a showing on several only to be told that the house is already "Under Contract" . Ask yourself, how did that buyer get to this house so quickly? Do they know something that we don't?

The answer is yes, they are a listed buyer. They hired a proactive buyers agent who has taken their needs and have marketed them directly to listing agent and everyone they know including friends and past clients.

A great buyers agent will take all of your home wants & needs and create a listing around what you are looking for. It may sound like this:

Joe & Mary, pre approved buyers, are looking for a move in ready 2 story home with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms in South Overland Park, Blue Valley Schools a must, they prefer an open floor plan with a walk out basement and a fenced yard for their dog Buddy would be a plus. If you have a home that meets this criteria or know of someone considering selling a home that meets Joe & Mary's needs please contact us immediately as they need to purchase in the next 30-60 days.
