Buying or selling a home? – Get a market analysis!!

Posted on

Also called a CMA, comparative market analysis, BPO, brokers price opinion, market analysis – it’s information you should get from your agent. I recently
heard a first time home buyer explain what they’ve been going through to buy their home. They worked with two agents and neither one prepared a
market analysis for any of the homes they made offers on. They were asked what they wanted to offer and that’s what the agent submitted. One agent
never prepared a purchase agreement! They called the listing agent with a verbal offer. That’s another blog altogether!! I felt so bad for this
young couple. They knew nothing about getting sales data for similar properties in the surrounding neighborhood. They were in contract but didn’t
know what similar homes in the neighborhood were selling for. The seller accepted an offer they made – a number they just came up with after their
agent asked what they wanted to pay. Now they’re wondering if they paid too much. It’s hard for me to believe this still happens, but if a buyer
doesn’t know what to expect they can’t make sure the process is working for them. Tell your friends to call a conscientious, experienced agent.
