Coming Soon! We all have seen these signs lately. This reminded me to ask the question: what is an appropriate time to say coming soon?
When you get a listing and put your Yard Sign up with a Rider: COMING SOON! What is the time you actually dedicate for this? Also how soon after it will you hold an Open House? How soon after it do you put the Listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS)?
Personally in the Greater Los Angeles area I have seen two days to a week which seemed like a normal time to present it to the Real Estate Community as well as to all potential serious buyers.
Ironically in my neighborhood, I noticed a Sign going up “coming soon” four weeks later, still no Open House, still not in the MLS…. So I am just wondering, what is going on? I Googled the address, I also Googled the listing agent, ironically neither appear on the Internet… Clearly I am puzzled.
Now going on four weeks tonight I noticed that the Coming Soon Rider is off the Yard Sign, still not in the MLS. Just wondering what type of marketing is this seller getting?
Now with that said please share with us what you consider is an appropriate time for a “Coming Soon” Rider?
I do understand that sometimes the place has to be made showroom ready, needless to say I do not think 3-4 weeks does anyone good. Let me know your thoughts.
