Tips on Choosing the Best Agent for Your Transaction
If you’re thinking of selling your home this year, it’s incredibly important to make sure you have the right agent by your side. Here’s how you do it.
For future home sellers in our market, it’s vitally important that you do your due diligence and ask lots of questions when it comes to finding the best real estate agent to work with. If you don’t choose the right agent, it can definitely hurt your transaction.
Failing to choose the right agent to help you market and sell your listing means that your days on market could increase, you probably won’t get top dollar for your home, and in the end, you’ll be displeased with how your transaction progresses.
So, to avoid choosing the wrong agent to help your goals come to fruition, be sure to:
- Ask lots of questions
- Understand their numbers—their average days on market, their list-to-sales price ratio, etc.
- Get the details about their marketing plan
In addition, you’ll want to review comparable sales with each potential agent, but be sure that they’re not just telling you what you want to hear. All too often, I’ve gone to a listing presentation and found that the price that was mentioned to the home’s seller was far above and beyond what we could ever get for that seller. That’s why it’s important to work with an agent who will actually tell you the truth and educate you about what’s going on in your market.
