Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - Finding the right Real Estate Agent

There are so many real estate agents in the market, how can you be sure you are making the right choice? It comes down to honesty, integrity, experience and a proven track record. That's what makes me one of Calgary's Top Realtors.  I believe in an honest and upfront approach to selling your home. I will not tell you what you want to hear only to let you down later when your property doesn’t sell. I’m not interested in taking your listing so I can put a “for sale” sign on your front lawn. I’m only interested in taking your listing if I can put up a sold sign.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT AGENT

Different real estate agents charge different commission rates. But don’t be fooled. What may seem like a good deal in the beginning could end up costing you thousands. When considering what is a fair commission rate to pay, take into consideration the marketing strategies your agent will be using. Marketing costs money, and without the right marketing you won’t attract the right buyers. The longer your house sits on the market, the lower the offers you will attract. All buyers ask the same three questions:

1) How long has it been on the market?

2) What’s wrong with it?

3) Do you think they are getting desperate? Let’s try a lowball offer.

So when it comes to paying commissions, don’t focus on how much you are paying, focus on what you are getting. A strong negotiator can easily earn you thousands more on the sale price of your home, making them worth every penny. Be smart and ask the right questions, but be willing to give your agent the resources they need to get the job done.

If you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait to see how much an amateur will cost you!

 


Top Ten Questions To Ask Your Agent:


1. How long have you been in the business?
2. How many homes have you sold in my neighborhood?
3. What market share does your company have?
4. How will choosing your company brand help to sell my house?
5. What is the average days on the market in my area?
6. What is your average days to sell a property?
7. What is the average list-to-sell ratio in the real estate board?
8. How does your list-to-sell ratio compare to the average?
9. What marketing strategies will you use to sell my house?
10. What skills do you have that make you a great negotiator?
