Each property (and each property seller) is different so a separate strategy is in place for each but sellers need to understand/ be informed that a property needs to be really closed until we consider it SOLD. My goal is to SELL and ClOSE your property.  Yes, marketing of some type continues...

Yes & YES! It's the best proof of success you can provide - "SOLD in 1 day for 10% above list price!" Soon-to-be-sellers love picturing their home featured on your next card too!

I learned from you Barbara. I do teaser ads, actives, too lates and solds.

Without listings in any market...you are out of business. Marketing, IMHO, is for future business.

My listings are working for me long after the close of escrow online.  The Virtual Tour and other posts continue to get calls.  Zillow and other sites keep my listings me in front of the public.  I won't pay for new ads once the home is in escrow though.

I market my listings in all directions. To find a buyer for the listing. To attract other buyers for other homes and lastly listings bring more listings. Showing off the sale pending and showing off a sale brings more sales.

It truly depends on the buyer strength.  Cash buyer, no I usually stop when it goes pending.  Otherwise I keep it marketed until all contingencies are met.
