A good local estate agent is one that has excellent access to (and is engaged with) numerous buyers looking at properties in your area which are of a similar size and price range to yours.
This will enable them to:
- Sell quickly
- Sell reliably
- Maximise market value
A good estate agent has excellent knowledge of the local market and has a ready made group of buyers at their fingertips looking for a property similar in size and value to yours.
This helps them to sell quickly and at the best price.
So why does a sole agent take 70 days to sell at an average of 4-7% below the asking price? Worse still, why are 43% of homes listed by sole agents eventually withdrawn from the market unsold?
