CHOOSING AN AGENT
Your agent should guide you through every step of the process and partner with you as you sell your home, making the journey as efficient as possible. Here are some qualities to look for in a seller’s agent:
Will they be honest with your home’s value?
Providing an accurate comparative market analysis and setting a price that will garner offers (and not just showings) is what a listing agent should be able to do without fail. Having an agent that is transparent, informed and realistic will set you up for a more efficient selling process that will lead to a higher sale price in a shorter amount of time.
Do they have strong marketing capabilities?
From suggesting changes in staging and decor, to cutting-edge digital and social media marketing, how your listing agent presents your home to the market makes all the difference. Your agent should be an honest and straightforward source of market expertise and vision when it comes to marketing your home, and should explain what needs to be done or changed to get your property ready for market.
Do they have enough experience?
An agent’s track record is the best indication of their success. As an award-winning and nationally recognized real estate group for nearly two decades, our agents are no strangers to the home selling process. We believe our collective experience is unmatched and there is no substitute for having seen it all while selling thousands of properties over the years.
Will they guide you through the process?
The selling process requires an in-depth attention to detail and someone who will guide you through what can be a painful parting of the ways with your beloved home. Be sure to choose someone who knows every step of the process and can explain it to you without fail; the more informed you are, the more confident you’ll be in your decision to sell.
