When it comes to selling your home, make sure you understand what to look for in a realtor so you can be sure to get the most out of your investment with as little hassle as possible. As the listing agent, the realtor works for you – the seller. The realtor is responsible for marketing your home, giving tours to potential buyers, and assisting with negotiations.
You may even choose to interview several realtors to find the best fit! Consider these factors:
Expertise: Your agent should be very knowledgeable about your specific market and local areas to accurately price your home. They should be able to speak to varying topics, such as crime rate, property values, inflation rates, and even local attractions and shopping.
Credentials: Realtors are required by the National Association of Realtors to be licensed by the state in which they work. Take time to research the realtors you are considering to ensure that they have an active license in good standing. Some realtors may also have additional designations or awards that signify participation in continuing education or outstanding sales. This means that they may be better qualified to close a top dollar deal for you.
Personality: Perhaps one of the most important factors in finding the right realtor is personality. You will be working closely with them, so be sure to find someone who understands you and your needs, communicates appropriately, and is compassionate and friendly.
