Gain Knowledge & Purchase with confidence

After all, it's one of your biggest purchases

For most home buyers, the purchase of real estate is one of the largest financial transactions they will make. Buyers purchase a home not only for the desire to own a home of their own, but also because of jobs, family situations and the need for a smaller or larger living area.

59% of homebuyers under the age of 29 don't expect to be in their home for more than 10 years.

29% of those homebuyers plan on being in their new home for less than five years.

How Does It Work?

Sold.com recently conducted a poll of homeowners. Among its biggest findings:

First, sellers are self-assured. 94% of consumers feel confident about selling a home. But there's not enough seller research. In fact, 58% of sellers who sold before spent less than 3 hours researching how to sell their home. Additionally, sellers aren't very picky about agents. Four out of five who use a traditional agent hired one of the first two agents they met with.

What These Findings Mean to You

Matt Woods, president of SOLD.com, found these telling. "The survey results validated that people think they know what they're doing when it comes to selling a home. Yet, it turns out that a large knowledge gap exists. And most people don't know that there are alternatives to selling via an agent or FSBO." The survey also suggests that seller research on agents is lacking. "Many seem to believe that all agents are created equal. Therefore, don't do much homework on which agent to hire," Woods adds.​
