We’ve spoken at some length about the inherent inefficiency in the old- fashioned real estate industry, even going so far as to call it dysfunctional (which is not too far a stretch, in our humble opinion). Once your house is listed, it might go weeks, even months, between receiving a serious buying offer and, as much as your agent might try to pretend otherwise, it’s a rare occasion to have two buyers in a bidding war for the property. Sure it happens – usually about as often as Halley’s Comet swings past our planet for another visit. While you may have visions of multiple bids dancing in your head, the traditional real estate industry is likely to disappoint you in that regard. On the other hand, the Open Door Auctions method routinely expects to hand more than a single offer, sometimes four or five or ten or more to the seller. All within the space of two weeks. Ask your friendly neighborhood real estate agent to duplicate that feat, and he’ll be a stroke candidate. Our strategy of a media blitz and quick, systematic price reductions is designed to uncover the true market value while, at the same time, generating a whole bunch of offers in a short period of time. There is no need to agonize through a single offer every month. You’re wasting your life with that long-term, one-sided listing agreement that supports a system seemingly bloated and unwieldy by design. The idea you should ponder is: why on earth would you submit yourself to that godawful convoluted business dealing when you could be cashing a check and getting on with your life two weeks from today? Does a “For Sale” sign in the front yard really tie up your life? Is the Hawaiian sky blue? Umm, yeah, it usually is. Consider all the extraneous activities that go along with the old-fashioned real estate method: dinnertime phone calls, open houses, painful negotiations with potential buyers as well as your own agent. The list goes on, but you get the idea. The whole thing is simply a pain and can literally push the “pause” button on your life for months at a time. Multiple bids. We’ve got ‘em. We know you want ‘em. Come get ‘em.
