Select An Agent and Price

Why Would You Choose A Professional Real Estate Agent?

There are many excellent reasons why you should choose an agent to assist you in this important undertaking.  The world of real estate can be very complex with many issues and necessary protections are a must. I only ever need to sit down with a client to go over contracts to see how grateful they are to have someone who understands the fine print. Aside from the potential dangers of a loose contract, a seller will need to tap into the extensive network of the real estate community. Getting the word out quickly and globally is crucial in selling a home and agents can tap into resources – national and international organizations, current and past clients, and all other real estate agents. I will always make sure to discuss options with you to help create the most effective marketing and advertising plan for your property.

 

What To Look For In An Agent.

The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when looking for a listing agent:

  1. Education. The most important factor in choosing a real estate professional is their education in the real estate industry. It’s always a good idea to seek out someone with advanced training and education as this allows them to be a very strong agent.
  2. Experience and Expertise.You want a full-time agent who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Do they employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy are they? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past?
  3. Availability and Commitment.Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you to your satisfaction? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your agent available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?
  4. Rapport.Does your agent take the time to listen to your goals and clarify your needs? Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one with whom you can get along and you trust to respectfully represent your interests to the real estate community.

 

What Is Your Property Worth?

Without a professional agent, most independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their property. Value is more than just the price tag and you risk losing any potential buyer with a miscalculation. You can avoid this pitfall by consulting with an experienced real estate listing agent.
