In one word: Marketing
Real estate agents don’t sell homes, the owners do. Property owners decide the price they are willing to take. We can guide you to set the best possible price but there is no guarantee a buyer will be willing to pay that much. In the end YOU decide to sell your property and for how much.
The reality is what real estate agents do is market your property. The idea is to market it well. The more buyers that are exposed to your home, the better chance you’ll get the price you want. It’s a numbers game that we do our best to put in your favor.
Carpenter provides all their agents with an extensive tool set to market each property beyond what most realtors can do. This is outlined in detail at Carpenter Home Marketing System .
