Working With Your Real Estate Agent
Selecting the right real estate agent to help you buy or sell your home is essential to a smooth transaction. For the best possible experience, you should consider a professional's background, personality and responsiveness.
Here are some tips to help you choose and work with your real estate agent.
How to Choose a Real Estate Agent
Consumers who do their homework can save thousands of dollars and experience a smooth transition. So don't waste time and resources – decide what's most important to you, and then find a professional who specializes in that market. A Property Pro, Ltd. agent can help you no matter what your needs are.
What to Ask In the Interview
If selling, ask the real estate agent how we can establish a listing price. Request a Comparative Market Analysis, also called a CMA, which shows the market value of similar homes in the area that are for sale or have recently sold.
Ask the agent how he or she would market your property. Understand that some agents may prefer to first tour your home and then put together a customized marketing plan to present at a later meeting.
How to Work With Your Real Estate Agent
If you are selling, create an information sheet that lists your home's features and best qualities, especially those that others might overlook. Your agent may be able to use the information when marketing your home.
When selling, talk to the real estate agent about cosmetic improvements. Your home may need fresh paint or new carpet. Property Pro, Ltd. works close with our vendors to keep their prices low and provide the high quality of work we expect.
If selling, keep it clean. Eliminate cobwebs and dust. Keep the bathroom counters and mirrors wiped down. Vacuum and sweep daily.
Your residence is likely to be the biggest single investment you'll ever make. Buy and sell wisely.
