The decision to sell your property can be a major one for most home owners and investors alike. This is why it’s vitally important to select the right real estate agent for the job. Because, not only will the right agent be the person best suited to working with you, they will also be most likely to achieve the results you are aiming for. With this in mind, below I’ve outlined my 5 Top Tips for Selecting the Right Agent to Sell Your Property. Each tip is designed to assist you to find the right agent for you, as well as to ensure your real estate sales experience is both a rewarding and positive one.
1: Choose Cost Effective Marketing
In order to achieve the highest selling price for your property, I recommend you invest in an appropriate and targeted marketing program tailored to get results. Additionally, it’s important to ensure this type of marketing plan is delivered at a reasonable and cost effective price. This means its best to avoid expensive up-front fees and charges and what I term as excessive marketing, which promotes the real estate agency as much as it promotes your property. Instead I always aim to keep your marketing costs down, by creating maximum marketing exposure to achieve a maximum selling price, all at a reasonable seller investment.
2: Aim High to Achieve High
Negotiation experts say, “If you wish to achieve a high selling price for your property, you need to start with a high asking price.” Why? Because by beginning your marketing campaign with a well-researched and market based higher price you give yourself the best opportunity to achieve this price level for your property. Furthermore, as a Licenced Valuer, I am able to assist you with identifying the best asking price possible within the current real estate market.
3: Look for an Experienced Negotiator
When it comes to negotiating the best price for your property, it always pays to choose an agent who is an experienced negotiator. This is because an agent with a high level of expertise in negotiation will have all bases covered during this critical stage of the sale of your property and they will also be most effective in handling the important negotiation process outcome. With over 25 years within the real estate industry I have successfully negotiated countless sales on behalf of my clients, and can do the same for you.
4: Ask for a Service Guarantee
To receive the best level of service possible during the marketing and sale of your property, I suggest you ask for a Service Guarantee from your agent before you sign a listing with them. Because by requesting a Service Guarantee you will ensure you’ll know what to expect and when to expect it in the vital area of customer service during your sales journey. Most importantly your agent will be able to provide you with deliverable, measurable, trackable and dependable service milestones so you’ll stay informed and up to date every step of the way.
5: Only Accept an Offer You’re Satisfied With
I believe a happy client translates into a successful sale, and this is why I always recommend you only accept an offer you are satisfied with. In fact the selling process involves presenting you with all of the information you will need to make an informed decision… and the one which is right for you and your personal circumstances. In this way the sale of your property is a win – win where you are genuinely satisfied with the outcome.
