There have been 9 homes sold in your neighborhood this year. Not one of them had the same listing agent, or same buyers agent. Basically 18 different agents worked these 9 contracts. Some of these homes stayed on the market for over 200 days, and some sold in less than 10 days. In todays market, pricing of a home is critical because there is so much competition. Some of these homes had a difference between list price and sales price of almost $90,000, while others had a list price almost equal to the sales price.
You currently have 14 homes for sale in your neighborhood. The problem may not necessarily be your agent, but the competition of homes in your neighborhood. I am not sure which home you own and are trying to sell, but I will give you an example of why some homes are staying on the market longer than others in your neighborhood.
First, you must put yourself in the shoes of the buyer, so you can understand their position. Now, which home would you rather buy (If they were similar in the condition of the home)?
#1) 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3 car garage, 3,469 sq ft - $329,999
#2) 3 bedroom + den, 3 bath, 3 car garage, 2,939 sq ft - $430,000
Both of these are listings in your neighborhood right now. With home #1, you get an extra bedroom, extra half a bath and 530 more square feet of home for $100,000 less. A buyer can do a lot with an extra $100,000.
You see, with all the short sales and bank owned homes, there are good deals everywhere. You may not want to hear this, but with over 50,000 homes on the market as of July, and less than 5,500 selling each month, you can understand that only the homes that are the best deals on the market will sell no matter which agent you use.
You need to find an agent that is knowledgeable, and that you can trust and believe in order to have a good working relationship, not an agent you "think" will get you the best deal. I would like to know more about your situation, and perhaps we could come up with a better resolution than what you currently have. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
