A little known fact about me… Lesley Peters. I am HIGHLY COMPETITIVE! For those close to me, it is no surprise. For those that don’t know me well, it is shocking. This southern lady plays to WIN.
The good news for our clients is that I am never satisfied. I’m always looking for the next best thing we can provide our clients to make us their real estate agent for life. And, in turn, that divine restlessness keeps us focused on becoming not only the #1 real estate team in Georgia but the #1 real estate team in the country.
And, it all starts with outpacing your local market. There’s no doubt that 2017 was a great year for the Metro Atlanta real estate market.
With sales slightly higher than 2016, over 90,000 homes sold in Metro Atlanta. Homes sales were up 3.7% from 2016.
Well… guess what? The Peters Company’s home sales were up 11.5% from 2016. We OUTPACED the Metro Atlanta Real Estate Market.
In 2017, Metro Atlanta had the lowest number of listings in the past 5 years. So, it’s no surprise at all that sales prices were up 4.2% to $250,000 (the highest in Metro Atlanta history).
With only a 2.6 months supply of listings (down 7.1%) from 2016, it’s not shocking that the “average” home in Atlanta was selling in less time for a higher percentage of sales to list price ratio.
The “average” Atlanta real estate agent sold homes in 36 days for 96.6% of original list price. At The Peters Company, we sold homes in 23 days for 98.06% of the original list price.
That means that here at The Peters Company, we net our sellers 1.46% more than the “average” Atlanta real estate agent. While 1.46% doesn’t sound like a lot (when you take into consideration our average sales price of $359,000), we get our sellers $5,241 more. That’s no CHUMP CHANGE. And, again, The Peters Company outpaces the average Atlanta real estate agent.
So, why would you choose an average agent? Why would you choose a real estate team that isn’t highly competitive? Don’t you want your real estate agent waking up every single day wanting MORE for their clients. Wanting the BEST experience possible. And, wanting to create a life-long real estate relationship.
You deserve more than “average!” Give The Peters Company a call today for an EXCEPTIONAL real estate experience. 678-921-1470
