Selling your West Knoxville or Farragut home is a big decision. Will you be able to get the price you are wanting for your West Knoxville or Farragut home? Is it the best time to sell your home? What repairs should be made? Once you’ve made the decision to sell your home, how do you pick the right agent to sell your home? After all, the right agent will help you set a good price, successfully market your home, and negotiate a contract.
Here are a few tips to help you select the right agent to sell your home.
Ask for referrals and do your research. Ask neighbors, co-workers, and friends who they have previously used. They will give an honest assessment of their experiences. Also, be sure to do your own research, so that you choose a agent that specializes in the area / type of property where you are selling your home. The National Association of Realtors has a national directory of all registered REALTORS®, its a good place to start your research. But, also be sure to utilize Google, Twitter, and Facebook. With as prevalent as social media is now, social media can be a great research tool to hear what past customers think.
Talk to a few agents. Take the time to talk to a few agents. Ask tough questions so that you can make sure you are confident you’ve selected the right agent to sell your home. How will they market your home to potential buyer? What makes them best suited to sell your home? How well do they know the area?
Select the best agent for the job and sign a contract that fits your needs. Once you’ve selected an agent, you will sign a listing agreement. The realtor you select will probably ask for a specific amount of time before the listing agreement expires. The amount of time they will ask for depends on the type of home and the price of the home. Certain types of property take longer to sell. The listing agreement will also specify the compensation the realtor will receive. Still, as the seller you have every right to negotiate compensation and the length of the contract.
