WOW, there seems to be nothing on the market and FINALLY when something nice is listed….gone. The Shakopee MLS listings inventory seems to be depleting. I looked today and there were literally only 187 homes that were “available” with so much inventory sold subject to bank approval. short sales and pending Shakopee MLS listings. The good news is homes are selling. I thought about another spin buyers in finding a quality Shakopee home. Buyers can either contact me, Tom Scott of Remax Advantage Plus and the Twin City Real Estate Team, or the Shakopee Realtor they may be working with and we can sift through past expired and cancelled listings. Shakopee MLS inventory that contracts have expired or sells have thought to take off the market for some reason. I see many of these end up being Shakopee short sale listings that go to the bank, but many sellers want to “give the home a break” as they feel once reintroduced to the market there will be more interest. Perfect opportunity to get out of all those multiple offer situation and be proactive. I or your Shakopee Realtor can set up what is called a one time showing contract so the seller does not necessarily need to go through the hassle of preparing their house if the truly do not want to sell at the moment. I ironically sold my Savage townhome this way prior to moving back to Shakopee. We had our home on the market, decided to take it off and then an agent from the Prior Lake Edina Realty office called up and said, “would you still consider selling your townhome”……um, duh, totally. Obviously it would depend on the price, but in most cases the seller will likely save some $$$ and might be able to come down a little more as well. Just a thought. I like to think outside the box and wanted to share an idea if you feel you are at wits end. Another idea we have done was to target market a specific neighborhood, style of home etc. I have sent out a mailing stating we have a buyer who is pre approved, ready to close in “x” time frame, please contact us blah, blah, blah. Good response and another way a Shakopee Realtor can help. So don’t just rely on what Shakopee MLS listings show up on your favorite home search engine,, be proactive. Hope this helps! Give me a call and I can send you a print out of a list in your price range.
