I recently wrote an article describing the five biggest mistakes that sellers make when they put their homes on the market, and today I want to talk about just one and how future sellers can avoid making the same errors.

In the Greater Memphis area, the average number of homes sold by an agent is four per year. It might also surprise you to learn that over 90% of all the homes sold in our market are sold by about 12% of the agents active in the market.
