If you have decided to sell your property, it is highly essential that you select a real estate agent who can market your property well and get you the best deal. It does not matter whether you are selling in a buyer’s market or a seller’s market or a balanced market – however, the agent you choose makes all the difference. Not all agents provide the same level of service. Most of the times, these listing agents only get paid once the property is actually sold. This means that most of the marketing expenses come straight out of their pockets. This in turn leads to some compromises in order to save money. Well, when you engage a realtor to list and sell your property, you need to ensure that they market your property professionally and effectively so that you get the best possible deal.
Here are a few things you can expect a professional realtor to do in order to market your property:
When you list a property for sale, make sure that your agent has a few good photographs of the place. Avoid dark, grainy photos clicked from a cell phone. Take the effort to rotate a photo and then save it so that viewers to not have to tilt in order to see it. Hire a professional photographer if need be. These professionals have the right equipment and can click a perfect picture with proper lighting. They can help showcase the most promising features of your property and ensure that potential buyers get a good ‘feel’ for your property by looking at the pictures.
A good agent will have your home professionally measured and will create a floor plan so as to market your property well. Whether you are selling a one bedroom condo or a five bedroom home, a clear floor plan along with the listing helps the agent market your house and strike a good deal. Today, there are various means to display floor plans to potential buyers. A 3D floor plan can have a greater influence on the buyer’s mind. Videos of the house and its surroundings help showcase it appropriately.
A professional photograph of your property must also be accompanied by a professional description of the place. The description must be informative and must portray the property appropriately. Make sure that you highlight the most appealing features of the property and its neighborhood. It should also include all the basic information that a buyer would want to know before considering it for purchase. If you are providing numerical information, make sure that it is precise and accurate.
Knowledge about your home and the neighborhood
Make sure that your real estate agent can answer all the questions that your potential buyers would have about your house. This is not only for the property, but also the neighborhood. Potential buyers want to know about the schools, markets, conveyance and local amenities of the neighborhood.
Make sure that you select the right realtor for selling your property and get the best deal!
