A recent survey by HomeGain says that home sellers are more than twice as likely to get their homes sold if they use a real estate agent, rather than trying to sell their home on their own. 66% of home owners who used an agent were able to successfully sell their home compared to 30% of for-sale-by-owners. Shorewest agents have an even higher rate of 81.4% successful sales.
Even more indicative, the survey found that 22% 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 as well.
The value of an agent in today’s market is clear based on this recent survey of home sellers. Talk to any Shorewest sales professional today if you or someone you know is in need of help buying or selling a home.
