The challenging real estate market makes hiring an experienced top Cedar Rapids, Marion, Hiawatha, Robins, Toddville, Center Point, Mt. Vernon, Swisher, Shueyville, Ely, Solon and Linn and Johnson County real estate professional who can provide expert guidance with a proven marketing strategy an absolute necessity.
Hiring the right top Linn and Johnson County real estate agent will save you time and money - and more than likely mean the difference between selling or not selling.
Why do so many sellers seemingly make poor decisions when hiring agents? Well, the National Association of Realtors collects data under its annual NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers. In 2010, the Profile suggested the following methods as how Sellers selected the real estate agent used:
Exhibit 7-1 METHOD USED TO FIND REAL ESTATE AGENT
|Friend Neighbor or Relative Recommendation||40%|
|Used Same Agent as Previous (buyer agent and not listing agent?)||24%|
|Referred through employer or work (relocation)||5%|
|Visited an Open House||5%|
|Personal Contact from Agent (Phone, Email, Mail)||5%|
|Referred by another agent||4%|
|Saw Contact Info on For Sale By Owner Sign||3%|
|Walked Into Real Estate Office / Called Agent on Floor Duty||3%|
|Newspaper, Yellow pages, or home book ad||2%|
|Advertising specialty (calendar, magnet, etc.)||1%|
The second statistic that is relevant is the fact that 64% of sellers interviewed only 1 (One) real estate agent before listing their home. 20% only interviewed two. Given this fact, the average seller does little or no home seller due diligence in picking the 'right' agent for the job of selling their Cedar Rapids home.
The bottom line: For a Cedar Rapids home seller - just taking a referral from a friend or using a buyer agent from when they purchased their home - generally will result in very poor results - even an expired listing - unless they do their homework and ask great questions about the agents performance, marketing plan and track record.
