The topic for this post “Spring Texas home sellers missed opportunities” is courtesy of my husband, working partner, and fellow Better Homes and Gardens Gary Greene, Realtor, Rick Ratchford. Rick is an exclusive Buyers Agent meaning he only represents buyers and not sellers. I on the other hand represent both buyers and sellers but that’s a topic for a different post.
In his role as a buyer’s agent, Rick has in length discussions with buyers about their desires and needs in a home. He sets up an automatic email notification based upon specified home criteria for his buyers. So his buyers will be notified when a new home matching their criteria is added to the real estate market.
How does all this automatic email notification of new listings to potential buyers translate into missed opportunities for Spring Texas home sellers?
Its in the photos or in this case should I say lack of photos. Far too many times to count, Rick has seen email notification of new listings contain ZERO, ZILCH, NADA photos. Buyers purchase with their eyes. They do not write down the MLS number of the new listing and go search for it every day just to see if the listing agent has finally added photos.
Spring Texas home sellers you only have ONE opportunity to capitialize on pent up demand. If your listing agent is not on top of her / his game its gone. NO PHOTO AVAILABLE = NO SALE

I've worked with agents in the past with whom I've been less than impressed, but Jill is top-notch. She is punctual, thorough, and patient. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the market, the builders, the school districts, the MUDs, and the neighborhoods. For the sale of our home, Jill took us step by step through the preparations necessary to get our house ready to show: everything from rearrangement of furnishings to referrals for handymen. When we started viewing potential houses to buy, I was amazed that Jill not only knew everything about the house she was showing me, but seemed to know details regarding all the neighboring houses as well. For the closings, Jill was an extra set of eyes, ensuring that the paperwork was in order. She also made sure that the the closing was at a convenient location and took as little time as possible (less than an hour in both instances). All throughout the process, Jill remained a driving force, constantly ensuring that inspection reports were being rendered promptly or that the mortgage provider was keenly aware of the closing date; and I received a steady stream of email updates from her. I couldn't be more pleased with her, and in the event we're once again in the market for another home, she would be my first call. read less
