Even though this market looks easy, it isn’t. Choose your agent wisely.
Did you know that a couple of years ago, five million homes were sold across America by 1.8 million license-carrying real estate agents? This past year, four million homes were sold by 2.1 million agents.
Less inventory, but more agents. From an agent’s perspective, it’s harder to find business. From a consumer’s standpoint, there are 300,000 brand-new agents competing for your home.
Choose your agent wisely. When home values went up, people thought the market got easier, and homes sold a bit faster and for more money. These new agents got into the market because it looks easy, but it is harder than ever to get to closing.
Experience, great service, and marketing matter, so make sure you choose the right agent.
