Value Range Marketing (VRM)

I think it’s wise for a seller of Las Vegas real estate to look at the value of their home as a value range, as opposed to just the appraisal value. The reason is simple; it creates reasonable expectations for the seller. When everyone is able to be reasonable, everyone has the opportunity to be pleased with the outcome.

The goal of VRM is to create a broader base of potential buyers!

I recently had a client selling a Green Valley Ranch  home in Henderson, Nevada. It was a beautiful house, a former model home. The most recently “sold” comparable properties in the subdivision sold for anywhere from $350,000 to $380,000. The most recent “active” comparable properties on the market were listed at prices ranging from $390,000 to $425,000, some of those asking prices being completely ridiculous. Knowing the activity that was taking place in the subdivision, I proposed the Value Range Pricing idea. I believe the property to be worth $370,000 on a bad day and $390,000 on an absolutely perfect day, both possibilities being completely reasonable considering what other properties had sold for. If my seller accepted an offer anywhere in between, it should be considered fair. The question was, how “fair” was it going to be?

We ended up getting multiple offers on the property and settling on a sales price of $385,000. Letting prospective buyers know the seller was serious about selling made a huge difference in the amount of showings, resulting in a multiple offer situation. The seller having reasonable expectations about what to expect, allowed them to make a decision they can live with for the rest of their lives.
There are some criticisms of this method of marketing Las Vegas real estate, the greatest being that when a seller shows their hand, the property won’t sell for as much as it could have otherwise. Many Las Vegas sellers tend to be a little on the greedy side. I can’t blame them, the Las Vegas real estate market has a reputation of being very HOT! No seller wants to leave any money on the table.

Here is the problem. One cannot calculate how many potential buyers did not even view the house simply because it was priced a few thousand dollars out of their price range. The goal of Value Range Marketing is to create a broader base of potential buyers. In order to have offers on the table, buyers have to first see the house. The result of Value Range Marketing is that buyers get into homes they would not ordinarily think are in their price range. Value Range Marketing does not obligate a seller to accept an offer - rather it allows the seller to entertain and counter offers within their range with an acceptable price and terms.
Value Range Pricing produces reasonable expectations of the seller. The end result is that a seller is able to sell the house for a reasonable price, a decision they can live with for the rest of their life.

About Assembly Bill 284 (AB 284 NV)
Real estate agents in Las Vegas are in tuned to the recently passed AB 284 that went into effect October 1 2011 but those outside of the Las Vegas real estate market arent too up to date. To sum it all up AB 284 will delay the foreclosure process. How? By increasing the requirements necessary for lenders to foreclose. In light of all the robosigning and the increased investigations of 14 major lenders for foreclosure fraud this Bill is meant to be one of the solutions to this ridiculous problem. While this most likely will expose fraud and give homeowners the ability now to obtain information on who is holding their mortgage increasing paperwork and having it recorded through the county clerk is simply going to create a huge back up in the system. With various budget cuts its unlikely that the clerks office is going on a hiring frenzy to keep up with all the work. The number of foreclosure filings for Clark County have already significantly dropped in the past month since the bill went into effect literally from once were thousands of filings a month now down to hundreds. Again this will reduce fraud and expose fraud allowing those involved to be prosecuted andor fined accordingly which overall is in the best interest of all homeowners however the back up in the system is going to be disastrous. The market is already slow its only going to slow down further. Tweet

Las Vegas Foreclosures and Robo-Signing
In most recent news it has been announced that an independent group of consultants along with federal bank regulators will be looking into homes that were foreclosed upon by 14 major lenders between January 1 2009 and December 31 2010. Anyone keeping up with the real estate market knows that Las Vegas foreclosures were numerous during that specific timeframe. After various complaints and suspicions further investigations decided to be conducted to uncover any foul play by the lenders and their employees. Many of these corporations are being accused of robosigning the illegal processing and obtaining of signatures on foreclosure documents quickly without going through the proper procedures. If after thorough review of these foreclosures the lender is found to have repossessed a home without going through the proper channels former homeowners may be entitled to compensation. Homeowners who lost their homes between the dates of January 1 2009 and December 31 2010 with 1 of the 14 listed lenders being investigated who believe that their primary residence was unfairly foreclosed upon can call 18889529105 and request a form to fill out and return no later than April 30 2012. If the complain meets the requirements more action will be taken to determine compensation.
