Choosing a Realtor –
Like choosing any service professional – from an accountant to your family doctor – it’s important to do your homework before deciding on a real estate agent. Your home purchase or sale likely represents one of the most significant financial transactions of your life, and you definitely want to find the right person for you.
You will likely rely a lot on your own instinct to decide whether you are compatible with a particular agent and will feel that he/she is someone you can trust.
Hiring a listing agent is crucial to your entire experience as a home seller. The person you choose will be involved in preparing your home for sale, establishing a listing price, marketing your property and negotiating the transaction.
You’ll be spending time with them, and relying on their advice to sell your home for the best possible price and as quickly as possible given market conditions.
Many sellers are tempted to choose the REALTOR® who suggests the highest list price for their property and who gives their home the most compliments, but you’re better served by a realistic REALTOR®.
You need to find a REALTOR® with whom you can communicate easily, someone who knows your neighborhood well and has a good marketing plan to reach buyers who are not only interested in your home but are also qualified to buy it. It’s important that your REALTOR® can offer advice about the condition of your home and suggest ways to improve its appeal without overspending.
