The Importance of Choosing the Right Realtor

12 April 2018

In the first 4 months of 2017, Sellers could pick just about any agent and their property would sell. There was no need to stage the property, no need for pictures or videos, just list at any price. So, any agent would do.

Today, you need an agent who can stage your property properly. Staging can add thousands of dollars to the eventual sale price. Everyone looks for properties online. Your pictures and videos are now critical! Bad pictures and the buyer will just flick past your property.

Finally, pricing your property has never been more important. List too high and it will just sit there. List too low and people will no longer bid way over list. They will try to offer full price and you can leave thousands of dollars on the table if that is your best offer.

Sellers need to interview an agent, in person, and ask these tough questions. Simply responding to an add offering to cut commissions won't do.
