HOW TO CHOOSE AN AGENT TO LIST MY HOME

Posted by Wendy Batten-Ward on Saturday, April 14th, 2018 at 11:06pm.

  "Sell your home in 90 days or less! Sell your home or we will buy it." These are the words spoken by many listing agents. Their ads are all over the radio and TV. Have you ever wondered how they really do that? Don't wonder! Most don't actually do that!! The key is many, not all, will over promise and under deliver. These agents are good at marketing their services to get the listing of your home. The hardest thing for an agent to do is be upfront with a potential client when discussing listing and marketing your home. It is easy for an agent to tell you what you want to hear and not what you need to hear. Many agents will agree with you on what you think your home is worth just to get the listing agreement signed. Then when the home fails to sell, he or she will try to persuade you to lower the price. You could save time by speaking with an agent who will tell you what you need to hear and give you a true honest opinion on what your home is worth. Most home owners when trying to sell are looking to get the most bang for their buck...everyone wants to sell at the highest they can, but at the end of the day the market data has to support what your home is listed for on the Multiple Listing Service. Overpricing your home can cost you time and money. If your home is overpriced you will deter potential buyers who feel they cannot afford it and for those who can know that the banks and mortgage companies will appraise your home and if market data does not support the offered price, the buyer will either have to put down more money to make up the difference or walk away and loose the money spent on an appraisal and inspections. You, as the seller, end up loosing more trying to sell higher than the market value because of your sentimental feelings or ideas of what your home is worth. The longer your home is on the market the more cost you have in your home such as the mortgage payments you make, insurance you pay, taxes you incur, HOA dues paid out, etc. Pricing your home for what a buyer would consider a good value and than will easily get financed is the best way to sell your home quickly. The key to selling your home in 90 days is PRICE IT RIGHT!! It is possible but not if it is overpriced and yes, of course a brokerage will buy your home if you don't sell it, but not at the price you may want!! We will buy your home too if you give us a price that is under market value...that is the piece of the puzzle those ads leave out.
