Did you know that when selling your home, choosing the right Highland Village listing agent can make the difference in how quickly you sell your home, and the amount of money you get for it? These are just a few reasons it’s critical to choose the right agent, but there are other reasons we’ll reveal below.
Your listing agent should be local – and by that, we mean very local, not an agent who’s located two or three hours away. Why? A local agent not only knows all the “key players” (other agents, tax assessors, contacts at the building department), but they’re also intricately familiar with and knowledgeable about every local market – what homes are available, the average home value in a specific neighborhood, even prospective buyers who may be looking for a home just like yours. This can help you avoid becoming one of the many sellers whose homes sit on the market for months on end.
Do your personalities mesh? When choosing a real estate agent it’s critical you choose someone you feel comfortable with and trust implicitly. You could be spending quite a bit of time with your agent in the coming weeks or months, so it’s important you feel at ease and never doubt your agent is representing your best interests.
How much experience does the listing agent have? Again, your home will sell quicker and for more money if you choose an agent with vast experience in the local market. This is because your listing agent often knows which other agents have been most successful in sealing the deal by representing ready buyers. Experience in the latest trends and features buyers are looking for, what’s selling and what’s not – all of this is extremely valuable to the seller.
