81% of Buyers Purchase Homes Through Professional Real Estate Agents


Attracting potential buyers is the number one problem encountered by owners selling their hown homes.  The majority of buyers, four out of five, purchase their home through a professional real esate agent.  In fact, less than one out of ten actually purchase directly from an owner.  This means that, assuming your marketing exposure is as effective as the entire real esate community, your market will only be 10% of the total.  (Source:  The Home Buying and Selling Process, 1993)
