Bruce Clark and the Clark Group of Surterre Properties: Our Successful Sellers Marketing System.
One of the most significant statistics when selecting an agent to market your home for sale is their average Original Listing Price (OLP) to Sales Price (SP) percentage. (The OLP takes into account all price reductions, so is a more accurate way of measuring an agents' success at getting top dollar for a home and working with the seller on pricing the home correctly.) A low OLP to SP is a sign that the agent either does not do their homework prior to consulting with the seller about the listing price - or that the agent 'buys' listings. Either way, the net effect is the home will probably stay on the market longer and sell for less than if it were priced effectively from day one. (Studies show that a home improperly priced typically sells for up to 6.5% less than it should have had it been priced correctly initially.)
We are very proud of our OLP to SP: we pay close attention to the market, inventory, absorption rate, and much more, which is why we have such a great track record of succesfully selling a home quickly and for top dollar.
We pulled the below OLP-to-SP data directly from the CRMLS (California Regional Multiple Listing Service):
* 2010: 101.08%
* 2011: 98.92%
* 2012: 100.03%
* 2013: 101.31%
* 4-year avg. of OLP-to-SP: 100.34%!
