Back in the go-go days of real estate, 79% of California homesellers were satisfied with their agents.
Uh, not so much. Only 22% are happy with them. Gee, think it might have something to do with the market?
“The reasons for being dissatisfied with their agents were more closely related to market conditions than to agent performance,” says the California Association of Realtors, which did a survey showing, among other things, how much people like or dislike their agents.
The 2009-2010 Survey of California Home Sellers states:
- 64% of sellers said that the house took too long to sell.
- 51% did not get the price they wanted.
The survey also showed that nearly 2 out of 3 homesellers initially listed their home with a different agent than they wound up selling it with.
