Think that your choice of real estate agent does not matter in the current market? Think again.
Read on to see just how much your choice of real estate agent can dramatically change your sale result.
BCP's client needed to sell their house bought just two months previously to pursue an out-of-state job opportunity. Further, the client would be leaving a vacant house.
We fully furnished our client's empty house from the "House of BCP" interior design collection to ensure maximum visual impact upon buyers, both online and in person.
BCP obtained $95K more for our client than the prior selling homeowner obtained just three months earlier.
Same house, same market environment...different agent.
At the same BCP time produced this result with 6313 Chaucer, other agents significantly undervalued the list price for other Landmark Mews THs, thereby dramatically reducing their client's sale result.
- An interior unit on Masefield with the same level of upgrades sold for $45K less than 6313 Chaucer.
- An end unit next to the Commons sold for $65K less than 6313 Chaucer.
- An interior unit with a walkout lower level sold for $135K less than 6313 Chaucer.
Your choice of real estate agent does matter. Let BCP be your trusted business advisor on real estate matters.
