All real estate agents are the same….or are they?
Good agents typically sell the homes they list. Others do not. The statistics are real: only 10% of the agents do 90% of the selling.
If you consider how real estate works it makes sense. A good agent needs the knowledge, skills, resources and motivation to get homes sold in a high-tech, competitive market. Once an agent has those key attributes in place they are experiencing and learning a lot more than someone who only sells a handful of houses per year. The more transactions an agent does, the better they get at dealing with all kinds of people and situations. Plus they would have built up more contacts, more determination, and more confidence, which helps them outperform other agents in their market.
What kind of agent is best for you? Shouldn’t it be one who aggressively looks for buyers to make sure your home sells… rather than one who just places a sign in the yard, lists it on the MLS, and hopes a buyer shows up? Shouldn’t it be one who understands the market and is a negotiation powerhouse?
So the next time you try selling, know the kind of agent you hire. As you may have already experienced the cost of making a mistake is high.
FACT: A home that expires from the market a second time sells for an average of 8.2% less than other homes. That can cost you money!
Perception is reality. When a home has failed to sell, buyers perceive it to be less valuable, so they won’t pay as much for it and you lose.
