Sharon Hodnett has been D Magazine’s best real estate agent for the past 3 consecutive years, and she spent an hour with us discussing the buying and selling of luxury homes. We learned about the extra marketing measures needed for luxury homes, the importance of negotiation, possession upon closing, and how hard a top quality agent works to earn their commission.
Luxury Homes Require Intensive Marketing
Sharon has recent experience working with luxury homes, especially with buying and selling them in North Texas in 2014. She gave us some excellent statistics about the current market including:
- Homes over a million dollars in Colleyville take an average of ¾ a year to sell
- Similar homes in Westlake sell faster, at a an average of a 1/3 of a year
- Luxury homes in Southlake have sold fastest so far, at a little over ¼ a year
Selling a luxury home is an art and takes a lot of extra work that wouldn’t be necessary for an average listing. This means that you should choose an agent who is certified to work with luxury homes like Sharon Hodnett. She is currently a guild member, which means that she has sold several luxury listings recently and is up to date with her certifications. She did provide her number, which is (817) 994-7152.
