Hi, Jonathan,

You might be right, BUT experience has much value, especially in a challenging market. An agent with few or no listings might lack the experience to know how to attract the right Buyer and negotiate the right terms. Most agents with numerous listings already have systems set up that insure that they pay attention to each client and each property. They don't have to invent stuff on the fly, because they have been through the process numerous times.

You might not want to list with an agent who has several listings in the same neighborhood, though, because you don't want your property to be "just one of their inventory". An agent who knows the neighborhood and who is an aggressive marketer for their other listings might be a better choice. They won't have any conflicts of interest with other nearby listings.

Good luck,

Doc Stephens, REALTOR®
