I have two RSF listings that are outside the Covenant.
One seller asked me what the chances are of selling.
I said 20%, to which he said, ‘Yikes’.
But any RSF listing only has a 30% or 40% chance of selling. There were 436 listings, and 127 sales (29%) last year in the 92067.

What can a listing agent do to help the cause? State your case on value.

If the purchase is financed, then an appraisal needs to be completed. Even though the sales price will have been given to the appraiser in advance, it’s still the listing agent’s job to make sure they hit the number.
As long as we gathered comps in the beginning to justify our recommended list price, and we have the need to deliver same to appraiser, we might as well include them in the listing to help buyer agents come to the right conclusion.
