Survey Says... Realtors Suck, I don't think so.
"The public perception of the real estate professional is amongst the lowest of any on record"... I have fought this stigma since the day I took my first real estate phone call. There's a joke I was told while contemplating a real estate career. It starts like this... "There's a lawyer, a car salesman and a realtor..." I don't need to go any further, you get the picture.
This post is based on The California Association of Realtors 2008 Home Seller Survey released in July 2008, but the statistics are just as relevant today. You can read the entire survey here.
The survey gives my consumers an idea of what questions to ask when listing and selling a home or property. So many factors apply when selling a home that it would be improbable that it was all the Realtors fault. But, never the less. Use this survey to help make the right decisions for yourself... then I hope you will call me with your questions, trust and your listing.
I'd love to hear your comments. Especially here in McClain, Cleveland, Grady, Garvin and Pottawatomie counties, Oklahoma.
