That is a good question! However you need to understand what our local, unique market is currently experiencing. We have a 7-14 DAY inventory now. So, with all due respect to the other Agents who have also answered your question, our market is not soft. We have MULTIPLE offers on just about everything available, even short sales. As an example, I know of a house that has 30, yes 30 offers on it as we speak. There are both foreclosures and short sales on the market.
Foreclosures are assigned to Listing Agents who are registered with either the Bank or an Asset Managment company. An Agent does not necessarily need to be "most effective" to be registered with them. In fact, many of our homes are listed with Agents in Orange, Los Angeles, and Ventura Counties as well as other far away places. How can an Agent be "most effective" when chances are they have never even seen your home in person?
What you need is a local Agent who has experience and knows the areas and more importantly our local market. You are competing with big corporations who can afford to sell their properties for less. You need someone who can guide you to sell your home for the most you can possibly get for it.
I have been in Real Estate since 2004 and am a 20 year resident of the Antelope Valley. I have a vested interest in ensuring that our area remains the best it can be. If you would like to contact me to set up an interview, please contact me at the numbers below.
Best wishes for a speedy and successful sale.
