What Is Your Property Worth?
Without a professional agent, statistics show that independent property sellers tend to overestimate the value of their property. When they do this, they may end up making less in the end because they enter the market at too high a price. While the competing homes on the market go under contract, the overpriced home will sit on the market longer. Longer days on the market generally means less money to the seller when the home finally does sell. You can avoid this pitfall by consulting with an experienced real estate agent.

What To Look For In An Agent.
The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when looking for a listing agent:
1. Education. Our professionals have continued to grow their knowledge base by taking continuing education classes. This means knowledge that benefits you and serves your selling goals in any market.
2. Experience and Expertise. You want a full-time agent who is familiar with your area and with the type of property you intend to sell. Does he or she employ a diverse range of marketing and advertising strategies? How tech-savvy is your agent? How many similar properties has he or she been able to sell in the past?
3. Availability and Commitment. Your agent should be capable of prompt and decisive action during the course of selling your property. Does your agent make it a point to keep in touch with you constantly? Can your agent easily be contacted in case of emergencies or even for the simplest questions? Is your agent available on the weekends or in the evenings when most buyers are out looking?
4. Rapport. Does your agent take the time to listen to your goals and help you to clarify your needs? Can your agent understand your unique situation and be genuinely concerned about the outcome of the process? Your listing agent will be your guide and partner in this crucial decision, so it is important to find one who listens and responds with an easy communication style.
