Compare Bob’s Track Record With Other Agents

Elegant Homes and Gardens' positioning in the West Michigan real estate market is high-end homes and estate properties i.e. the top 10% of the real estate market. The following graph demonstrates our professional focus in serving luxury homeowners. Based on average sales price Bob Reid is clearly positioned as one of the top five Agents in the Greater Grand Rapids real estate market (Number of Agents in the market: Approximately 3,200).

As a homeowner looking for the right agent to help you achieve your real estate and financial goals, you may be surprised, even shocked to know that 65% of listings go unsold! Which means the average agent gets only one-third of their listings sold. It’s also crucial for homeowners to recognize that the average time it takes to get a home sold (for the 35% that do sell), is close to four months. When interviewing agents, there are only two questions that should matter to a homeowner looking to sell their home for maximum dollar:

Firstly: “What percentage of your listings do you get sold?”

Secondly: “How long does it take to get your listings sold?”

The reason the second question is so important to you as a home seller, is that the longer a property sits on the market unsold, the less the market is willing to pay for your home, so you should look for an agent with a track record of the lowest number of Days-On-Market. By the time your home has been on the market for four months (the market average) or longer, statistically your offers will come in as much as 9% below fair market value. So, if your home is worth $250,000 – that’s a whopping $22,500 out of your pocket! Don’t take that risk!

Call Bob Reid to get your home professionally marketed and sold and for the maximum the market will pay for your home. Don’t put this off, it’s just way too important. CALL NOW: 616.821.4375.
