    • help finding a buyer (20 percent), and
    • help marketing to potential buyers (20 percent).
  • When the responses are examined by the level of service a seller wanted, a few interesting differences were observed.
    • Twenty-eight percent of sellers who requested a limited set of services wanted help pricing their home competitively.
    • By comparison sellers who relied on an agent primarily to list their home with a multiple listing service were most likely to want help selling their home within a specified timeframe.
