Sellers Are Twice As Likely To Get Their Home Sold Using A Realtor

Home sellers are more than twice as likely to get their homes sold if they use a Realtor, rather than trying to sell their home on their own, according to a survey conducted by HomeGain of 400 home owners nationwide. Seventy-three percent of the home owners surveyed said they used a Realtor. On the other hand, 21 percent of those surveyed said they tried to sell their home themselves. The survey found that 66 percent of the home owners who used a Realtor were able to successfully sell their home compared to 30 percent of for-sale-by-owners. What’s more, the survey found that 22 percent of the for-sale-by-owners eventually decided to use a Realtor to try to sell their home. More than half of those who did were then able to sell their homes too, the survey found. 

If you are looking to sell your home in the Anderson and Greenville SC areas of SC, and you are looking to know where to start, we will help provide you with the best resources available anywhere.

The single most important element you will need is a fair asking price. There are plenty of agents who will list your home for anything you say, but if the price is not in line with what the market will support, you are wasting your time and exposing your home to "shop wear" - (once your home is seen by other agents as overpriced, it tends to get ignored and just sits on the market and stales). Let us give you a real figure - we don't tell folks what they want to hear; we give them a real range based on facts and experience.

We don't just put your property in the MLS and hope for the best. We aggressively market your property through the Mega Listing Sites andSocial Media. We know the internet sites that drive traffic, and your home will have unparalleled exposure to thousands of potential buyers. We harness the power of such sites as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, YouTube and Google Maps. As well asfacebook, Twitter, Craigslist, Hotpads, Oodle andRE/MAX.com, just to mention a few. We have an experienced marketing department, and it shows!

As you are considering your home sale please let these tools assist you.

Thank you for sharing the statistics! Sellers that want results, and a return on their investment (commission). We have to find new ways to communicate and show our value.

This sounds like pretty good odds Sheila. It seems that an agent is worth the commision.  :)
