For some REALTORS® it’s hard enough to try to find interested buyers in a property that might look perfect but is situated in a crummy part of town or maybe the house is in a great neigborhood but the rooms are too small.
Whatever the case may be, selling a home sometimes isn’t easy.
It takes some patience and creativity to attract the right buyer to want to submit an offer.
Now, what would you do if you had to list a home that was in a perfect part of town and showed like model home but it had a dark past.
Here are stories from agents who had the unfortunate pleasure of listing a home with eerie past...
The curious case of the peaceful neighbors
A seasoned real estate professional will tell you, “you can change the home but you can’t change where it is”
But what about the neighbors?
Listing agents from Frederick, Maryland, Karen and Chris Highland would tell you you may not be able to change the neighbors but you can always put a fun spin on it.
Not an easy sell for many home buyers to feel comfortable with. Though, when there’s a will, there’s a way.

That’s going to leave a stain
Open houses can be a nerve-racking experience especially for a new agent.
Many agents will spend hours leading up to an open house making sure every last detail doesn’t go unnoticed by a potential home buyer.
For real estate agent Fabian Moreno, he had no idea he would be walking into his first open house marked with a stained marked all over it.

Three too many

That’s not the case when it comes to the home Arizona real estate agent, Celina Padilla, had the pleasure of getting sold.
A crafty Celina didn’t have to be that crafty at all when it came to getting her buyers to make an offer on the property.
