Have you tried listing them in the Classified section of Creonline?
What about Ebay?
Your local real estate investment group? Partners?
Flyers at surrounding stores, hospitals, businesses, police stations, schools.
Are you selling them at 80% of appraised FMV?
What city are they in? Age? Size? Condition? etc.?
I normally have better success without the MLS. I put out about 20 little yellow signs at all major intersections leading to the house with words such as “No Bank Qualifying with Down Payment”, “Lease to Own”, “Owner Financing”, “Get $6,951 Free Grant Money For Downpayment”, etc.
At the right price or financing terms, someone will be willing to move in the winter.
Good luck.

I’m in that bind that is sooo bittersweet…

i’ve got 4 homes tied up, looking to sell hopefully to retail buyers, got em listed on the mls…no luch after 3 months…

i’m about to lose them to foreclosure as they are all short sales…i’m offering great terms…80% of fmv…i’m offering to carry back 2nds, pay all closing costs…everything…

it’d be such a shame…i’m getting alot of interest but its the winter-time, no one wants to move!

any ideas?
