Veteran realtors sell homes 12% more than newer realtors according to Bennie Waller, professor of finance and real estate at Longwood University. Experienced agents also list newer and larger properties than their less experienced counterparts.
In addition, two-thirds of properties listed by veteran agents sell. Newer agents only sell half of their listings.
"The more experience you have, the more likely you are to sell the properties that you list, the more likely you are to sell it at a higher price and the less time it stays on the market," Prof. Waller says.
This is why it's important to list your home with a veteran St. Tammany realtor like Wayne Turner of Turner Real Estate Group. Turner has been successfully selling homes for over 16 years and sells over 100 homes every year.
