How do you choose an agent?
When appointing a real estate agent, look for someone you can trust and feel comfortable with.
A good sales associate understands that setting a price for your property is one of the hardest decisions, both emotionally and financially, that you must make. While there is no “exact” price for any piece of real estate, your agent should have access to extensive knowledge of local market conditions and be able to provide comparisons of similar properties that are on the market or have sold recently.
By applying this information to your own property, an agent can help you review all the relevant facts so that together you can make an informed decision on the anticipated selling price range of your property. An experienced agent will also develop a marketing strategy designed to help you achieve maximum sale price.
They will keep you informed throughout the marketing process and advise you of any change in local market conditions. Through their experience, a good sales associate can offer advice on how to present your home to attract buyers. Often some simple steps like re-arranging the furniture or storing unused items can make a home more attractive to potential buyers.
When making a decision on who to appoint, look for a real estate professional who can demonstrate a track record of great results and is willing to take on the responsibility of working for you.
