You are considering selling your house but you don’t know where to start. The easiest way is to hire an agent but agents don’t work for free. How much are you willing to pay for their services? Do you have enough money to pay for them? While it is not impossible to find an agent which charges low, you have to be cautious in hiring one. You should be looking at an agent’s success rate in moving a house instead of setting your focus on his service fees.
Search for agents online. Top caliber agents are very much updated with the trends. They knew that people nowadays use Internet, most of the times, in searching for products and services so more likely they have an online presence such as personal website, directory, and social media accounts.
Search for agents locally. You can’t discredit agents who do not have online presence. Agents who prefer to work locally do not find the need to build a personal website because they find clients through family and friends’ referral. What is good with local agents is that they knew the marketplace already – which house has sold, at what price, what marketing strategy to use to attract buyers, etc.
Who to choose
Look for at least three agents to represent you and have them evaluate your house. You will know that an agent is any good if he is able to provide you with a sound marketing plan, success rate over period of time, and relevant experiences from his past clients.
Once you find the ‘one’, determine exactly what services does he offer. You should know the agent’s limitations and if you are willing to go with them. Otherwise, you can always find another agent to work with.
