Qualities To Look For
The responsibilities that lie with the seller’s agent are easy to understand; however, you will need a skilled professional to ensure a good sell and not just one that is after the commission. Here are some qualities that are essential:
Experience: You want to go with someone who has at least five years of experience selling homes. You can easily look this information up by the state licensing authority.
Moreover, it goes without saying that you should hire a seller’s agent who can show you stats of his work. That means that you not only get a ball park figure of what he sold in the last few months or years, but also you should get information about how much of his actual listings from last year were sold. This total number will give you a good indication of how effective he will probably be.
Recommendations for preparation: A good seller’s agent will have a bag full of tricks to get your home sold. He should be ready to recommend any indoor or outdoor improvements, lighting issues, and anything else which may hinder a sale from occurring.
Easy Accessibility: Unfortunately, given the many ways there are nowadays for contacting someone, you want to make sure that the way you prefer to communicate, and as often as you would like, does not pose an issue to the seller’s agent. The last thing you want is someone who loses contact with you during this important process.
In addition, to the above three fundamentals, you ought to get specific details about certain important aspects of the selling process. When considering someone to be your seller’s agent make sure you gather these specifics:
- Find out all the various ways your home will be advertised and how frequent will updates occur. It is best to see some current examples of the seller’s listings so that you can have a feel for how your home will be displayed.
- When you are given the proposed selling price, ask for supporting details on how that figure came about. At this point it is also a good idea to calculate the seller’s commission and any other fees you are aware of.
- Ask for recent references that you could contact to get reliable firsthand information about how the seller’s agent conducts business and if that is in line with what you expect. Contacting three to five current and former clients should suffice.
When it comes to seller’s agents they are not all created equal. You do not want to start off the selling process of your home with the wrong person. Not only will it waste your time, but also it will cost you lots of lost money.
