The News on Home ListingsAccording to Housingwatch.com who’s reporting on a Wall Street Journal article, only half of last year’s home listings that went on the market, that’s 500,000 in seven major counties have sold. Redfin Corp., a Seattle-based brokerage firm operating in nine states, says that 53% of the listing tracked in counties like Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Boston and Phoenix weren’t sold after a year. The data tracks listings not homes.
So instead of tracking how quickly a home sales or how many are sold, Redfin gives a look at the success rate of an agent to sell a home the first-time around or how long before a seller takes the home off the market to either do repairs, upgrades or find another agent. When homes don’t sell fast, the Maryland movers know that many times the owners blame the agents, so that’s why there’s a switch in realtor.
In order to find a professional and reputable realtor, the local Maryland movers suggest you first talk to friends, family and coworkers to see who they have worked with in the past.

With a little bit of research, you can definitely find a realtor that’s right for you. You can also interview a few, ask them about their experience because some of them might be specialized in rental units, some in foreclosures others in certain areas or single-family homes.
