HOW TO FIND THE BEST REAL ESTATE AGENT

July 28, 2020

Thinking of selling the property?

  

You need to make some important financial and emotional decisions when selling your home.

 

The significant aspect when deciding to list your property is who sell it for you.

 

The best agent is like your personal consultant will put your needs first and give you the abundance of real estate knowledge that will benefit you.

 

HOW TO FIND THE RIGHT REAL ESTATE AGENT WHO YOU TO TRUST TO GO WITH?

TALK TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS

 

Ask your family, friends and neighbours who have sold or bought the property recently about their experiences and recommendations.

 

SHORTLIST OF AGENTS

 

Make a search of agents have sold properties in your local area. It will give you a good indication of which agents are doing well.

Make a list of 2 or 3 agents and ask for an Appraisal . The highest valuation is not the best, an over-priced house may not sell.

 

ASK FOR FEEDBACK

 

Every agent has references or testimonials to prove their success. Ask what past clients have said about him or her!

 

ONLINE ADVERTISING

 

Make sure your real estate agent uses the Internet to market their listings.
Find out the sources they use for market online and how frequently.
Find out the specific procedures employed by the agent to sell your home.
See if the agent uses a direct mail campaign and what it entails.

Ask for a sample flyer and any other marketing materials. This will influence the number of potential buyers who see your property on a market.

 

COMMISSION RATE

 

Avoid choosing agents based on the commission rate!

 

The most important when choosing the agent are:

  • the agent’s experience,
  • local area knowledge,
  • quality of proposed advertising campaign – to be confident that your property is seen by the largest number of potential buyers to maximise the selling price.

An agent who charges a commission to sell your property will have a different approach to one that charges a fixed success fee.
Take the time to understand the different options available to you and which might be the best for you.

 

SIGNING DOCUMENTS

 

It's your responsibility to clarify everything you've agreed to before signing any legal documents. Please check all the terms and conditions of the agreement!
