GroupWatson Vs The Competition
Not every real estate agent is the same. We all have unique experiences that we bring to the table and have taken different training classes throughout the span of our careers. Every agent in the area will tell you they’re the best of the best, but we think actions speak louder than words. Instead of just telling you what we can do, GroupWatson has the numbers to prove our success rate!
Across the board, all homes in the entire North Texas area sold for an average of 97.8% of the seller’s asking price in 2017. So far in 2018, that number has declined slightly to 97.4%. Compare that to GroupWatson clients enjoyed an average of 100.22% of their list price! That may not sound like much, but when you do the math, that 2.42% can add up to some serious money! The average sales price in North Texas was $294,684. 2.42% of that average price equals $7,072! That’s a big difference!
In addition to more money, GroupWatson sellers were able to reach their goals faster. GroupWatson listings averaged just 26 days on the market for the year. That’s over 2 weeks fewer than the area average of 40 days. During those 16 days, homeowners waiting to sell might end up paying another monthly mortgage payment, HOA payment, property taxes, and utility costs, while they miss out on being where they truly want or need to be instead. That could delay the start of a new job, or caring for a family member in need, whatever it is that’s motivated the homeowner to move.
When interviewing real estate agents, be sure to ask about their track records! Interview more than one agent and check out their references and reviews. Your home isn’t just where you live, it’s also a huge financial asset that deserves the utmost care and attention by a true professional. Hiring an agent with a proven record will ensure that you’re receiving the maximum amount for your sale, in the timeframe that benefits you the most. The right agent can be critical to the overall success of your sale.
