This Month in Real Estate- Market Update

December 8, 2010

 Every year, the perception is that no one buys homes during the holiday season.  I would like to share with you that every year, without fail, for 8 years, December has been one our our biggest months- this year being no exception.  This Month In Real Estate, a monthly video and newsletter piece put out by Keller Williams, focuses on “For Sale By Owners”.  According to the National Association of Realtors, the number of  “For Sale By Owners” or “FSBO’s” is down.   Studies show that the biggest challenges for people attempting to sell homes by owner are setting the price and preparing a home for sale.  The video this month focuses on the benefits of using a full service agent including:

  • The experience and ability to price the house according to the current market
  • The ability to market to other agents (79% of home buyers purchase their home through an agent according to the National Association of Realtors) ‘
  • The ability to quickly and efficiently post the house and keep up with changes to the listing on a multitude of websites, in addition to the MLS, through affiliate relationships
  • Utilize a wide array of marketing strategies based on experience and area market knowledge. 

Due to these factors, Realtors can sell homes for a higher price in a shorter amount of time.  Questions?  Contact us – we will be happy to speak to you about the benefits of using a realtor in today’s market!
