There are over 80 differentials that need to be considered when selling a home in our local market today. Having an experience agent or team of agents is critical. Having the right level of experience will save you time and money. This experience will show in their ability to effectively market your property and effectively negotiate in your favor.
One question you should ask an agent when interviewing them is asking them how many personal transactions have they closed in the past 12 months and how many has their team closed.

This will be important in getting your home sold.
