Since, for most, their house, represents their single, biggest, financial asset, wouldn’t it make sense, for them, to do, everything possible, to protect their investment? When a homeowner, decides/ determines, it’s time, to sell his home, he must do so, wisely, and in a focused manner! Rather than, merely, hiring a popular, real estate agent, a friend, or a friend – of – friend, it’s important to carefully, examine your goals, priorities, and needs, first, and then, select, and hire, someone, who, you feel comfortable with, appears, to understand and appreciate your needs, and answers your questions, and addresses your concerns, to your satisfaction. In addition, this individual must exhibit a willingness, and ability, to effectively listen, rather than immediately, try, to sell – himself, to you! In other words, wise homeowners, hire an agent, who keeps it REAL! With that in mind, this article will attempt to consider, examine, review, and consider, what this means and represents, and why it might make a significant difference for you.
1. Reality; relevant; reasoning/ rationale; right pricing/ marketing: Avoid selecting an agent, because he/ she, suggests a higher listing price. This strategy, often referred to, as, Buying a Listing, is often unrealistic, because, listing, and selling prices, are far, from the same thing! Your representative must use relevant reasoning and approaches, and be willing to explain his rationale! Pay attention to an agent’s pricing strategy, and reasons, as well as marketing approach and plans!
2. Empathy; emphasis; excellence; endurance: You need to be represented, by someone, who effectively listens, and learns, from your conversations, and proceeds, with genuine empathy! This should lead, to where he places his emphasis! Only select someone, who proceeds, with his utmost degree of personal excellence, rather than settling for good – enough! In addition, since the transaction and marketing period, often encounters obstacles, you need to be represented by an individual with endurance, and self – confidence/ preparation!
3. Attitude; aptitude; attention; articulate: You need someone, with a genuine, positive, can – do, attitude, who perceives, obstacles, as challenges, to overcome, rather than debilitating problems! How will you determine, whether their aptitude, and skill – set, will serve your needs and priorities? Can the individual, you choose, pay attention to details, and articulate a clear message, to get you the best, possible results?
4. Listen; learn; leading; lessen challenges: You should choose someone, who is capable of lessening challenges, and leading, his clients, in a focused manner! Explore whether someone, is ready, willing and able, to effectively, listen, and learn, from every conversation, and experience!
