In the second half of 2015, McEnearney Associates sold the homes we marketed more quickly and for a higher percentage of original listed price than the competition. (By the way, we started tracking this performance in Northern Virginia in 1999, and we have sold our listings closer to list price every year. Since opening our first Washington, DC office in 2007, we have added DC, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties to our evaluation, and we’ve topped this category every time in the last nine years.) And also of interest, the average sales price in the metro area was $464,342 – our average sales price was $633,000.
We looked at the results the real estate companies in the Metropolitan Washington area with at least 500 settled listings.* These companies encompass a wide variety of business models and an equally wide variety of company sizes. This includes the two largest independent real estate companies in the United States and the local arms of the largest real estate company in the world. We know it isn’t the number of agents or the number of offices in a company that matter. It’s the quality of agents and the company, and their ability to deliver results for the client that matter.
Market conditions have varied widely in the seventeen years we have been tracking these numbers, from balanced markets, to sellers’ markets to the current transitioning market. And we have adapted to these changing conditions, outperforming the competition regardless of market conditions. Our carefully assembled team of the most productive Sales Associates in the Washington Metro Area makes all the difference for our clients.
