Telling and Selling – What Your Real Estate Agent Can Do for You

Telling and Selling – What Your Real Estate Agent Can Do for YouDo you really know what your real estate agent is supposed to do to represent you as the seller? Many people think that all they do is “sell” your home. But there is so much more that goes into making the deal work. As a real estate agent, you are obligated to your clients to do everything you can to make the process of selling their home go smoothly. You are the professional they have chosen to turn to for help. Most people want an agent they can not only trust but will do all they can to get the most money for their home in the least amount of time with the fewest headaches along the way. Because some home sellers know so little about the sales process, it is easy for a realtor to do the bare minimum to get by as an agent, but they quickly find out that their business goes nowhere by doing the least possible. But when you as the seller gets one that does their best by covering all the bases, they will gain a great reputation and get all the extra word of mouth referrals.

Smart home sellers understand there is a big difference between being mediocre and being a great realtor.

It May Be About Location, but It is Also About the Job the Realtor Does

The barriers to entering the industry are far too small when you consider a real estate agent is typically handling someone’s largest asset. Many professional critics think it is far too easy to get a real estate license today. They believe that realtors should take more time to study and prepare for a realtor’s license.

When selling a home, you can easily choose the wrong agent, because the odds are always stacked against you.

By understanding their most important tasks a realtor should be doing, you will be better able to make a smart decision.

Know Up-Front What Your Realtor Will Do for You

  1. Pricing a home properly is the most important thing you can do as a realtor.The agents at Carmona Realty Group knows that Exceptional Real Estate agents avoid giving in to the desire to say what will make sellers happy just to attract business. Their top-notch Real Estate agents will price each home using their training, understanding of the market and comparable sales.
  2. Marketing is one area where your Real Estate agent should shine. Your agent should be taking great pictures of the property – hiring a professional photographer if necessary. The photography in your home is absolutely one of the essential elements in selling homes. When you see how appalling some of the photos of some real estate agents post of their client’s homes, it is amazing the client keeps them. What is probably even worse is most of the clients never bother to look! They should also use social media to spread the word. If they are not doing this then they are selling you short and you may never get sold for the money you expect.
  3. Real Estate agents should regularly update their customers on the feedback from showings and about anything else that may concern them. A seller needs to know what is going on with the sale of their home. Too many Real Estate agents get a client and then only check back in when they get an offer. Even if there are no offers, keeping in touch lets a seller know that you are doing something – and worth paying for.
  4. A pre-qualification in most cases is not worth the paper it is written on. Anybody can say they are interested in buying a house. Not everyone can get pre-approval for a home loan, though. A good listing agent will make sure that buyers are pre-approved – not just pre-qualified. There is a big difference between mortgage pre-qualification and pre-approval. You want buyers who have already submitted all information, including a credit report and been given the go-ahead for a loan. As long as nothing changes with their financial situation or their credit, they should be able to get approval and buy your client’s home.

Why Choose Carmona Realtors?

The best agents will go out of their way to fight hard for the best terms and conditions for their clients. This, after all, is what they are paid to do. A great Real Estate agent will never think about their pocketbook but what makes the most sense for their client. This is one of the reasons why you should never choose and an agent that “needs” to make a sale. When you hire an agent like those at Carmona Realty Group who isn’t worried about when their next sale takes place, you will get much better advice.
