In the second half of 2012, McEnearney Associates sold the properties we marketed for a higher percentage of the 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 in twenty-six of the last twenty-seven semi-annual periods. Since we opened our first office in Washington in 2007, we have added DC, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties to our evaluation, and we’ve been tops in this category every time in the last six years.) We also sold our listings one full week faster than the market average, and at an average sales price more than $200,000 higher than the market average.
We looked at the results of the thirteen largest real estate companies in the Metropolitan Washington area as measured by the number of listings settled.* These fine companies encompass a wide variety of business models and an equally wide variety of company size. 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. And we found what we have always known: size doesn’t matter in obtaining the best price.
Market conditions have varied widely in the fourteen 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 area makes all the difference for you.
