Even A Monkey could do it... Or could they?
The market is so busy that someone recently said that even a
monkey could sell a home right now. It is true that many homes that
failed to sell after months on the market last year, have been quickly
snapped up in 2015. However, just getting a home sold should not
be the only objective. Sellers want the highest price and the best
contract terms....monkeys do not have the skills necessary to achieve
It is much easier to sell homes in this hot market but getting the best
price requires extensive marketing; excellent presentation of the
house; and expert negotiation skills. All of these things can push
the selling price up significantly with the ability to negotiate being
of particular importance. While most realtors don’t have negotiation
training, I have had significant training/experience negotiating (having
practiced law for 20 years) which is very helpful in obtaining optimal
results for my sellers.
Your home is likely your most important asset and the current market
is fabulous for sellers....but hiring the most skilled person available for
the job is still critical for the best result. So maybe a monkey could
do it, but the result would not be optimal!
