Survey Finds Home Sellers Fare 120% Better in Getting Their Homes Sold Using a REALTOR® Than Selling
HomeGain surveyed over 400 homeowners asking whether they used a REALTOR® to sell their home or whether they attempted to sell it themselves. Seventy-nine percent said they used a REALTOR® to sell their home and 21 percent said they tried to sell their home on their own.
Sixty-six percent of homeowners that used a REALTOR® to sell their home were successful vs. 30 percent of FSBO’s, reflecting a 120 percent higher closing rate for those home sellers using a REALTOR®.
