National Association of Realtors Statistics


According to the national association of Realtors has some great statistics on why everyone should use a Realtor to buy or sell their home. As of April of 2017 there are 1,236,5444 Realtors. If you break that down 65% of Realtors are sales agents, 22% are Brokers and the remaining 15% are associate brokers. All Realtors in the Denver Foothills area all agents are actually associate brokers including Evergreen, CO Realtors.

If you are planing on selling your Evergreen home for sale by owner you might be interested to know FSBO only accounted for 8% of total sales in 2015. The average sale price was $185,000 compared to $240,000 for agent assisted home sales. Only 33% of FSBO sales were contributed to yard signs so you will need to do a little more that sticking a sign in the ground.

Realtors know the market and understand how to properly price a home. It is very difficult to price a home in the foothills. There are no 2 homes or properties alike. They are much more different than say down the hill in Denver where most lots in a neighborhood are the same, all the home built the time, and pretty similar in many ways. It takes a professional figure out and to know if your 5 acres of unusable land is valued the same as 2 acres of usable land just down the road. Weather your view adds to your value and how much. Realtors know the area.

Realtors have a great network and technology that are at their disposal. Now not all Realtors in Evergreen and the Denver Foothills use this technology the way I do but they do have the option. It is kind of puzzling that some Realtors don’t use technology when so many clients of mine find their dream home on my website. Not to mention how many sellers have had their homes found and sold from my website. The technology is there so it should be used.

Also keep in mind that not all real estate agents and brokers are Realtors. As a Realtor one must complete ethics classes, contract update classes and be in good standing. Knowing someone is a Realtor just gives that little added feeling of comfort in purchasing the biggest investment most people will make. Realtors take great pride in their industry and most are professionals and have your best interest in mind. So you will want to consider employing a Realtor for your next real estate transaction for no other reason than a piece of mind.
