Selling your old home can be an emotional roller coaster as you say goodbye to years of happy memories but look forward to starting your new life in a larger property, or in a different part of the country or maybe even both.
But it can also be a stressful time as you deal with realtors, contracts and viewings so getting the right real estate company is a crucial part of the proceedings.
In this blog, we’re looking at three things your realtor needs to demonstrate before you think about appointing them.
Being a good communicator is very much tied up in having a great relationship with your realtor. You want to find someone who ticks all the boxes on paper but also has it what takes to impress you when you meet them in person.
There are several ways to do this and if you want to check someone’s style out while they’re at work then you might think about visiting an open house sale to talk to the realtor at the property and see how they come across. If you’re impressed then you can ask for their card and follow up that meeting with an appointment. If you’re not impressed then at least that’s a name you can tick off of your list.
And a specific plan that is unique to your home and your particular situation. Every sale is different and you bring with you your own set of variables to do with timing, sales prices and other factors.
You want to see that your realtor has paid attention to your circumstances and has a great marketing plan in place that’s going to help you fulfill your sale needs.
An Honest Assessment
Someone who guarantees you the best price but doesn’t have much experience might not be doing you any favors. You’ll have looked around the market and will probably have your own ideas on how much you might be able to sell your property for. Your conversation with the realtor should be realistic and honest.
Their commission relies on getting you the best price and that will always come down to the market you find yourself in, time of year and so forth.
Your realtor should also help you out with some advice on how to make your home sales ready. They might recommend getting some minor painting and decorating done or getting rid of any clutter that has built up and might put potential buyers off when looking around your home.
Choosing the right realtor will help to get your home sold as quickly as possible and make sure that you are in full control of the process from start to finish. They will be great communicators, have extensive experience and knowledge of the market in your area and give you realistic and honest advice about how to sell your property quickly and at the price you need.
Find a realtor who ticks all those boxes and you’re new home is right around the corner.
