Are you considering selling your house?
Why hire a Realtor® to sell your house?
It’s best to hire an agent who belongs to the National Association of Realtors, so you can be sure that they are bound by a Code of Ethics.
With the right marketing plan and exposure, I can sell your home for every last penny of its market value (and sometimes even more). Accepting the most favorable terms and conditions for your home and receiving the biggest proceeds check you can after a sale is worth hiring an experienced Realtor.
Tip: Interview several Realtors
Remember, you are the customer, and you have the choice to take your business to anyone. Select a Realtor based on their sales statistics, work ethic, references, working relationships and ability to work with your personality and requirements.
If you need help interviewing potential Realtors, start by getting answers to these questions:
What is your list-price-to-sales-price ratio?
How many homes have you sold in the last year?
How are you different from other Realtors?
- Accessible and a quick communicator
- Skillful and strategic at negotiating
- Creative with marketing strategies
- Patient and accommodating of questions
- Able to explain contract terms clearly
- Cool and collected under trying circumstances
How will you market my house?
How will you keep me updated throughout the listing process?
After each showing, I’ll personally call each agent for feedback on condition and price and relay that information to you. And I’ll communicate with you in the way you prefer. I am available by call, text or email, but let’s communicate the way that’s best for you. Selling a home is too big of a deal to do without talking regularly. I mean can we really be talking too much? Nope. Can’t
Not quite ready yet? No worries!
Selling a home is a big deal and should come with some advanced planning (or at least growing excitement)! Even if you’re a few months from wanting to sell, now is a great time to start interviewing agents (a’hem.. don’t forget to call me!) to see who is a good fit for you. Just let them know that you are not quite ready, and if they’re good, they’ll help you prepare.
