If you’re wondering how to choose the best listing agent, here are a few tips to remember.
The Realtor you hire is the person you count on to sell your home. This means getting the best possible purchase price and handling all of the details that go into the home sale process.
If you’re selling and on the hunt for a new agent, how do you find the best one? Take a few of these considerations into account.
First, remember that selling is different from buying. Although most Realtors handle listings and help buyers find homes, they may be more experienced with one side of the transaction than the other. Some are great at finding homes for potential buyers, while others are more gifted at marketing and selling homes. Find a Realtor who has plenty of listing experience under their belt. They should also have a reputation for selling quickly and at a great price. Finding this person shouldn’t be too difficult with a little bit of effort.
“You need to choose a Realtor who’s the best combination of experience, knowledge, and personability.”
The best place to start is by asking for a few referrals. Look to people you know who’ve recently sold homes in your area. After all, you want a Realtor who knows your area and market. You can also search Zillow, Yelp, and Google for local Realtors. Additionally, you can ask your mortgage broker or insurance agent whether they know any Realtors that might be a good fit.
Once you have a list of agents to choose from, take some time to see what their reputation is around town. Check back in with Zillow, Yelp, Google, etc., and read their online reviews. Look at their past sales and see how they market their properties on social media or their website. Do they have drone photography, video walk-throughs, or 3D modeling? Their client reviews and marketing strategies will give you a clear picture of how they’ll market and sell your home.
The next step is to start interviewing candidates. During the interview process, you need to ask them about their track record of selling homes in your area, how fast they sell those homes, and how they handle marketing. Look for someone you can get along with and communicate well with. Since you’ll have a close relationship with this person until your home gets sold, you have to be comfortable with them.
You need to choose a Realtor who’s the best combination of experience, knowledge, and personability. Who you hire should be someone you like, trust, and know can get the best results for your home sale.
