Get it right! How to pick the RIGHT estate agent for you and your home.
- What kind of properties do they sell?
Look for an estate agent who’s GREAT at selling your style of home. If you have a starter home, look around for similar homes sold in the area, if you need a luxury home sold, search for an agent who has sold luxury homes in the past. Not only are they more likely to know how to sell your home, but also they’ll have a list of buyers looking for your type of home at their fingertips.
- Do they have local knowledge?
Knowledge of the local area is VITAL in an estate agent. Not only can an estate agent make more of an impact when they’re immersed in the local community, but knowing which local amenities to highlight can make or break the sale of a home. Go with an established local estate agent over an online one who may not know the surrounding area.
- How do they market their properties?
Marketing can make or break your sale. Great marketing will bring the right people to your door to offer you the best price, as quickly as possible. Ensure they take great looking, professional photos to really highlight the best of the property, as 70% of people view properties online, and the photo will be the first thing they see. Ask them where your property will be shown, a great estate agent will offer you good coverage, both off and online.
- Do they have existing databases?
If an agent has an existing database of buyers looking for a property like yours, its half the battle won. They can instantly match your property to those who will be interested and it’s likely your property sale will go through faster, with less time wasted on viewings from the wrong people.
