If you are interviewing listing agents, why not request a Free "Comparative Realtor Analysis." (CRA).
A man made report that shows you how each agent did in previous sales.
Kinda like progressive car insurance's website. Showing you
everyone's stats. Sometimes we will be better, sometimes we won't.
It will highlight variables such as
# of Listings Sold
# of Listing Withdrawn, ie unsuccessful listings! (Not available on FranklyMLS)
Average closing price as a percentage of Original List price
Average closing price as a percentage of Final List price
% of listings with 30 Photos
% of listings with wide angle Photos
# of listings with video tours
Average and highest price point
Considering hiring a Buyer's Agent?
We can run a report for you showing you several agents you might be considering and data including:
Which areas and price ranges they closed
What % off list do they tend to get (and whether this matters)
How many bidding wars they have won (homes under 5 days)
Considering putting in an offer?
This is a similar report to the Listing agent report, but more focused on the price reductions the agent tends to do.
This data might give you some insight as to what the listing agent might recommend to their client. Thus saving you money.
