Question No. 5 “What is the average length of time your listings are on the market?”

You may automatically assume the shorter time on the market, the better. But note, if an average length of time on the market is significantly faster than the average for Palmia Homes in the area, is it because this agent is more effective or because he or she likes to low-ball the asking price in order to get homes sold more quickly?

Also, take a look at what the original asking prices are for Palmia homes the agent lists versus what the homes finally sell for. This “swing” number will tell you how effective the agent is at helping clients determine the right asking price and doing what it takes to help them get it.

This is Question 5 of a series of 29. Watch Melanie Callahan’s blog for more critical questions you must ask in order to select the right Palmia real estate professional for you.
