Classes Are A Good Idea

I was talking with the good people from Shea homes the other day and they find themselves in an interesting predicament. I am sure a lot of home builders find themselves in the exact same situation these days. You see, Shea has people walking through their models in Back Country everyday that would love to buy a new home there BUT…they have a home to sell.

You see, the “BUT I have a home to sell” issue is happening all over Colorado. Many home owners would love to buy right now and take advantage of the low prices, low interest rates and many incentives, but they can’t sell their home or afraid it will take too many years to sell their home. So Shea came up with a good idea to help people sell their homes.

I know what you’re saying, “Selling a home is a pretty standard process. Many people know how to do it.” Not so fast; this is a very different real estate market place than the last time you sold a home. Moreover, the real estate landscape is changing everyday and the way we buy and sell homes will look a lot different in two years than it does today.

So what’s Shea up to? They are going to start holding classes on selling your home. Not exactly a new creation when it comes to ideas, but it is a good one and here’s why. For years, real estate agents, mortgage lenders, and yes builders held home buying classes, but very few held home selling classes. The reason is simple; it’s been a while since we’ve been in a scenario that is so one sided with more sellers than buyers. As such, there really hasn’t been a reason to hold “home selling classes” until now.

What are you going to find out if you decide to attend one of Shea’s classes? How to sell your home with today’s latest marketing techniques and technology, the science of pricing, and how absorption rate affects how quickly you’ll sell. How about how to SAVE MONEY on the sale of your home, what buyers really want when evaluating a home purchase and a whole lot more?

If you want to attend “How to Sell Your Home Today” and hear from great realtors like Gary Lohrman from Fuller Sotheby’s, Bill Watson from ReMax, Pam Kiker from Keller Williams and the Shea Team call 720-344-1800 and tell them you want to attend the class. Or email Sheri Tannascoli at sheri.tannascoli@sheahomes.com. The class is on Saturday, Feb 27th at 11:30am at Back Country in Highlands Ranch.
