Selling your house can be lucrative. It involves a lot of patience. There are many documents to prepare. Marketing can be exhausting. It can bring more hassles along the way particularly if you are busy with work or perhaps with a business you manage. This is a situation fit to tap the help of a realtor. But with dozens of them, how sure are you that your choice is right. Here are some few tips to help you pick the best choice among your lists.
Talk to his/her past clients.
The time which your house will spend on the seller’s market depend on many factors. But sometimes, it can become dependent on how your realtor works on exposing your property to potential buyers. Know how often he or she sells properties. More often than not, there are reviews on realtor websites. These can help you figure who their clients are.
It is also possible that one of your relatives, friends, or current neighbors are past clients of the realtors in your shortlist. They can be your first lines of information. Talk to them carefully. It is a key that can help you past thousands of dollars.
There are a lot of realtors out there. There are actually a lot of good realtors. But will you settle for someone who is good enough if there can be someone who is stellar – perhaps a rock star when it comes to selling properties.
Know the realtor’s history.
History is probably one of the most boring subjects to many persons. But, in real estate, history well-served gives the results deserved. After talking to past clients, you can at least have a glimpse of a realtor’s history. You have the first information for some good and bad points.
Take your efforts the extra mile. It is now time to talk to the realtors on your list to have their histories through their personal accounts. Shed off the layer of shyness and ask questions.
Some of the possible helpful questions you can ask include:
- How long have you been working as a realtor? – Let number be an important factor here. While more years should not be synonymous to stellar, the more years of being a realtor can be an ideal ground for being able to handle various problems on home selling.
- Have you lived in the area where the house you are about to sell is located? – Your realtor shortlist may contain realtors who are relatively new in the industry. Some of them are only beginning in the profession with a year or two of experience. But it doesn’t mean they can’t be stellar. Ask if they have lived in the area. If it is decades or more, it translates to more expertise than a realtor who has decades of experience in the industry but only has a few years of living in the area under his credit.
- Are you alone or with a team? – Response time and availability are two elements which a realtor can handle effectively if he is working with a team. What if you need his help but he is booked by another seller for a meeting? Somebody from his team can represent him to meet you and discuss things over.
By carefully choosing a realtor, you can have an ally to help you sell your house in a phase faster than what you expect.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
