Same House: different agent, different results.

Posted by Help Now on Monday, February 8th, 2016 at 2:28pm.

EXHIBIT A: Listed with a different Brokerage


The home above was on the market 4 months and NEVER SOLD. Last listed at $339k (Below what we sold the exact home for shown below) This home has 3 tone paint, real hardwood floors, updated colors, and modern white kitchen with granite and backsplash. It's also partly fenced.


EXHIBIT B: Listed with Utah Dave @ goBE Realty


Meanwhile, this home sold for $340k in 3 weeks.   It only has 2 tone paint and brown colors. Formica counters throughout kitchen and upstairs instead of granite like the home above.​ Laminate hardwood not real hardwood floors. Also, no fence on this home as opposed to the partially fenced home that dind't sell. The only other difference between this home and the one above was the wet bar in the basement. So even though the home above had more updates and improvements, the home below is the one that sold!

As you can see in the apple to apple comparison that you see above, the real estate agent you choose can yield vastly different results. Agents say they do staging, have the best marketing, or greatest work relocation system. Although they do often have good marketing; that is not what brings you results! The number one mistake that sellers make is picking an agent based on the cost of their service. The sellers have a false belief that their home is going to sell for the same price regardless of the agent hired. Another common mistake is picking an agent due to the agent enticing them with a higher potential price of their home. There are a lot of good agents and brokerages for you to choose from. Be sure to select an agent with proven results to help you through the process of selling your home. If you want proven results and to increase your chance of being the home that sells FAST and for MORE MONEY (like the comparison above) call me.
