Redfin Listing Agents Sell Homes More Effectively, Faster, and for More Money

Updated on October 6th, 2020

If you’re thinking of selling your home when the housing market is slow, a great listing agent can mean the difference between having your home sit unsold for months through repeated price drops and quickly attracting a great offer and successfully closing the deal. Today’s market is anything but slow for sellers, but according to our research, choosing the right agent still makes a big difference. Homes listed with a Redfin Agent sell faster, for more money, and are more likely to sell.
In order to measure this, we analyzed over 16,000 listings that came on the market in the first nine months of 2012. Compared to the competition, homes listed with a Redfin Agent:

  • Were 12% more likely to sell within 90 days.
  • Sold 6 days faster on average.
  • Sold for $2,700 closer to their original list price.
