The home selling process is not a secret; location, price, and condition are 3 key factors to selling you home. However, there is much more that often gets overlooked, which is why careful planning and choosing the right real estate agent to list your home is critical. A mistake could cost you thousands of dollars and months of frustration.
Taking your listing without an ability to sell it is a disservice. You will NOT get that type of service from TLC Realty!
Working with an experienced agent who is skilled in communication, technology and marketing can make all the difference. For instance, when searching for the perfect REALTOR® to entrust with selling your property, do they have/are they:
- A strong online presence. Is their website easy to navigate, do they use social media in their marketing efforts, are they easily found when you do typical real estate Google searches? According to the National Association of Realtors® over 90% of new buyers begin their home search online. Will those buyers in the 90 percentile find your home?
- Full-time agent. You want your agent fully engaged from day 1 and available to show your home whenever the need arises. We make sure your house gets the attention it needs to be seen by prospective buyers.
- A proven track record. Has your prospective agent sold homes in your community lately? Are online reviews from previous clients available and favorable? Do your homework and choose an experienced agent…they will show their worth as you progress through the selling process. Check out our reviews, they are excellent because we give excellent service every time.
- Fact based advice. Make sure ALL prospective agents back up their suggested list price by showing you comparable recent sales in your community as well as listings that have expired and properties the homeowner pulled from the Multiple Listing Service. Listing at the right price makes all the difference, and is a big contributor in whether your house sits on the market for months or closes in a reasonable timeframe.
Anybody can agree with the price you set, but a true professional will risk losing the listing to make sure you understand what price the market will bear!
There are many other subjective factors you will consider when getting ready to sell your home, all based on your specific preferences, desires, and motivation to sell. We can assist you by providing insights on listing/closing terms, staging advice, repairs/renovations, buyer appeal, as well as communicating with you all the way through the home selling process.
Putting a sign in your yard and forgetting about you is NOT our selling method. Providing smart and progressive marketing that gets your home seen and sold is our approach.
