Choose your agent carefully

You see their names and faces on lawn signs, bus stops and billboards.


But when it comes time for you to buy or sell a home, how do you know how to choose a realtor who is right for you?


Two of the biggest mistakes home sellers make when choosing a listing agent are selecting an agent solely based on:


1. Highest List Price for Your Home
Since agents can’t guarantee your sales price, the listing agent who suggests the highest price is probably untruthful. Ask the agent to show you numbers supporting that suggested list price. Recent Sales in your area. This will give you an idea of its true market value.

2 .Lowest Commission
There is always a reason why a broker or real estate agent would discount a real estate fee. Sometimes it’s the only way the agent feels it’s possible to compete in a highly competitive business, because the agent can’t otherwise stand apart from the competition on service, knowledge or negotiation skills. If the sole benefit an agent brings to a table is a cheap fee, ask yourself why. Is the agent desperate for business or unqualified? Do you want to work with a desperate agent?


CHOOSE a realtor that has the knowledge and experience to take care of all the details,


CHOOSE an agent who will work to guide you through the entire process, and explain things clearly as well.


CHOOSE an agent who knows the area you are selling in.  They will know the market, other agents, and special features of that particular location.


CHOOSE an agent that is trustworthy, patient, and communicative


CHOOSE an agent who is communicative, a good salesperson, experienced, and dedicated.


CHOOSING a real estate agent that’s right for you can make all the difference between smooth sailing and troubled waters.
