"...did you know some agents will give you an unrealistically
high list price for your home just to get your listings..."
It is Essential That Your Home is Priced Correctly!
Many Agents don't have the required skills to properly attract new listings and when they do get ONE they may have made promises to sell the home at prices that are unrealistic in today's real estate market. It had been easy to sell homes for the past number of years as prices had been rising quickly, BUT that is no longer the case. The fact of the matter is, the majority of homes sell for a price which falls short of what sellers may have been lead to believe.
Here's a couple things to consider!
Don't be set up for disappointment;
Beware of agents who set the list price on homes at unrealistically high levels simply to get listings. This is really unfair because it can set homeowners up for disappointment and failure.
Some Agents may price a home correctly, but lack the skills to market the home effectively. Most Agents follow this marketing plan;
Put a Sign on the Lawn, Put the Property on MLS and Pray that it Sells.
You need an Agent with a marketing plan designed to expose your home to the maximum number of qualified Buyers. You don't want to be forced to accept a low offer.
The Jenkins Team Selling Plan Incorporates the following;
Preparation of your home (staging, pre-listing Home Inspection, Professional Photography, Real Video Tours and much more)
Proper Pricing Strategy to get you Top Dollar
Promtion of your home through the RIGHT channels to maximize the exposure of your home to the most Buyers
Improper pricing and/or ineffective marketing plans may cause a home to sit on the market for months, frustrating home sellers and stalling plans to move forward with other plans and obligations
Deciding Upon an Agent
A good agent knows the market and has information on past sales, current listings, a marketing plan, and will provide their background and references. Evaluate each candidate carefully on the basis of their experience and qualifications.
Are they pricing your home correctly?
Home prices are determined by the marketplace not by your emotional attachment or by what you feel your home is worth. You should work closely with an agent who will suggest establishing a realistic price for your home. They will help you to objectively compare the price, features and condition of all similar homes in both your neighborhood and other similar ones which have sold in recent months. It is also important to be familiar with the terms of each potential sale. Terms are often as important as price in today's market.
Do they set themselves apart from the others by offering innovative marketing plans to sell your home fast and for top dollar?
Will they set up an aggressive marketing program to ensure your home is exposed to hundreds of qualified buyers? How much money does this agent spend in advertising the homes s/he lists versus other agents. In what media do they advertise. Do they use a techiques to market your home where Buyers are looking? What does this agent know about the effectiveness of one medium over the other?
Are they accountable to you?
In other words when they promise to sell your home for the price you mutually agree upon, do they offer you a guarantee (in writing) that you will get this amount of money for your home?
