Are you considering selling or buying a new home?
Wondering how an agent can help you through the process?
Real estate is one of the most important decisions you will make during your lifetime. You want to work with a professional who will be your trusted guide throughout the entire process as well as after the sale. You want to feel protected and supported each step of the way. Below are 7 points you need to look for in an #agent who is going to walk the home path with you.
Value Enhancing When you sell your home you want your agent to walk the #property with you. Pointing out ways to enhance your property so you get top dollar. The suggestions that are offered might be for minor updates or major upgrades that will make a difference in the timing and sale price of your home. These can include freshly painted rooms, decluttering, an update to your front door, landscaping, kitchen, and bathroom updates. One of my favorite Compass programs is #CompassConcierge, the hassle-free way to sell your home faster, for a higher price.
Compass Concierge fronts money with no interest for the renovations you want to make to enhance your home.
Realistic Pricing will help sell your home in the time you need. Pricing your home too high, will scare buyers away, or pricing your home too low might leave money on the table. Make sure your agent shares a market snapshot with you. A market snapshot will show you what has recently sold in your neighborhood giving you the most up-to-date pricing that consumers are willing to pay.
Having a strong Marketing Plan will help promote your property to get the maximum exposure. This includes a strong social media plan, print advertising in publications that reach your targeted audience, and connecting with a massive reach of agents across the Country to market your home. Compass has a national network of 30,000+ agents that can see your home.
Great Negotiating Skills, will give you the best and fair price for your home. Knowing when to push for something or lean back based on your goals and needs as a homeowner.
A Transaction Manager who will make sure your home closes on time with the least number of surprises. You want an agent who has a network and can connect you with services that will make the process as smooth as possible.
Communication is one of the most important elements in a relationship. You want your agent to always communicate with you about your home and what is happening in the market. This includes the number of showings, and comments regarding your home, regardless if they are positive or negative. This will also help you to understand what will sell your home at the time you need. Make sure the type of communication you are receiving is what you prefer, whether it is through text, phone calls, or emails.
Lastly, I would recommend a Trusting Connection. You are placing one of your most valuable assets in someone else’s hands. Make sure you trust the agent you are working with, you enjoy their company and are confident they will deliver you the most value to get your home sold.
