Most people simply assume that, when they list their home, it will be sold; especially in good economic times and ‘hot’ markets.
Well, as you can see, there's a lottery ticket attached to this page. Why? Because actually the odds of most agents getting your home sold are not very good. Not as bad as the lottery, but still a gamble.
In fact, over the past year, according to local real estate board statistics, not all of the properties listed sold within the term of the agents’ listing contracts. However, during that same time period, Li Li Hwang sold virtually every home well before the end of any listing period.
Selling your home does NOT have to be a “crap shoot”.
You can gamble on an agent with a low batting average – or who won’t disclose his batting average (in writing). Maybe with your home, he or she will do better.
Or you can rely on the one agent who sells more homes faster and for more money than the average area agent.
