The Home Team Advantage*

This is my inaugural post for the YourHomeForSale blog, so I'd like to introduce myself and let you know that you will also be hearing from me, in addition to Steve.

I've been in the real estate business for more than 18 years, almost as long as Steve, and that's saying something. I've been working with The Home Advantage Team for the past six years, and we've established ourselves as the #1 real estate team in Arlington, MA. But you knew that.

What you may not know, is that with the Home Advantage Team, you also get the Home Team Advantage. According to baseball analysts:

"Over the course of modern baseball history, the difference between playing at home vs. on the road has been about 80 points of team WPCT [winning percentage] - a road team will win about 46% of its games, and a home team will win about 54% of its games, all else being equal."

Stay with me here. Just as the home team wins more on their own turf, so do clients who use local, knowledgeable real estate agents.

I represent buyers in a Buyer Agent capacity. Whereas Fenway Park may be one of the Red Sox's most lethal weapons, having a real estate agent that knows the ins-and-outs of the town you're interested in, is yours.

Buying a home is an intensive and time consuming process - there are a lot players that need coaching - inspectors, lawyers, brokers, lenders - and when you're buying a home, you definitely don't want to swing and miss. So I hope you'll come back regularly and look for some of my insights and tidbits of information that you can use as part of your house-hunting strategy.

*Disclaimer: An exception to the rule of the home team advantage applies to the Stanley Cup tonight, where the Bruins will surely win on the road and bring the cup home. Go Bruins!
