Have you been asking yourself,”Is it the right time to sell my home?” It is an important decision and you don’t want to make the wrong one when choosing an agent.
Let me tell you a dirty little secret about real estate……
Agents are told and trained to take as many listings as he or she can possibly get. The thinking is that they will get lucky and sell a third of them. Easy Money! Will your home be one of the lucky ones that will sell? Are you really wanting to gamble your time and money on the luck of the draw? When you are ready to say, “Sell My Home”, what will happen?
I can’t be serious, right? Well here are the stats……I looked at two of the biggest listing agents in our market. You see their signs everywhere. Beautiful faces, slick advertising, etc. How did they fare over a 6 month period in selling homes? Between the two they have 105 active listings. Pretty good so far right? Keep going….
SOLD MLS LISTINGS – this is the endgame, right? In the same time period, they sold 16 listings. Only 16 listings! That is 15% of the listings that they touched.
EXPIRED Listings – If they can’t string you along and get you to renew, the listing will expire. 25 of their listings expired. 24% of their listings wasted 6 months on the market and turned many buyers away.
More listings expired than sold!
But did they get their sellers the most for their money when it did sell? One of the agents averaged only 92% of list price while the other averaged 96%.
How Are We Different?
- We only carry a few listings at a time, so yours really matters.
- We get 99% of list price (average over 3 years)
- 89% of our listings have sold in the last 3 years.
- We average less than 120 days on the market from listing to closing table.
(These are averages. Your results may be different)
We Don’t Just List Homes, We Sell Them
These are real numbers and I can and will show you the proof.
