Do not be afraid to ask the tough question
We have around 1300 agents in our local MLS (about 10% or 130 agents are selling 10 or more homes this year)
We are now seeing agents from outside the area coming to Charlottesville to sell homes (are they experienced in this area?)
Looking at the stats closer you would see that the majority of agent in our MLS have 1 to zero transactions for the previous 12 months. Many people choose an agent because they are a relative or a friend. The odds are not good that you are working with a top agent.
As a BUYER or SELLER these statistics should mean something to you. Do you want an agent who is not truly “Active” in our market?
I see agents advertise, both in print and on the web that they are a “Residential Expert” or “Specialist” or even a “Condo and Townhouse Expert” but when you look at the sales for these agents, they are really “stretching” the truth.
As a BUYER or SELLER, ask your agent :
How Many Successful Closing have you had in the last 12 months?
(Numbers do not lie)
Buying a home is a big investment and you want your Charlottesville Real Estate Agent/Broker to be one of the best!
