And sellers are following through on those recommendations; the typical seller has recommended their agent twice since selling their home, with ⅓ recommending their agent three or more times.Why are sellers so happy with their choice to work with a real estate agent? The money, for starters; according to the report, the median selling price for agent-assisted home sales in 2017 was $250,000. Homes that were sold without the help of a real estate agent? $190,000.
