Additional skills we believe are important to you, our clients - Our Difference is our Brokers
What Maine Sellers want from a Realtor.
Here are 5 top expectations a seller wishes or wants in their Realtor:
- Find a buyer for their home.
- Sell their home within a specific time frame.
- Price their home competitively.
- Recommend ways to stage or fix up their home to have it sell for a higher profit and in a quicker time period.
- Help with paperwork, inspections & properly preparing for settlement.
Things to consider: Choosing the best Realtor today.
Selling a home should be like any other business transaction, but all too often sellers make emotional or impulsive decisions that cost them money and time. Choosing the right Realtor to market your property and negotiate the sale is the most important step in the process.
You're the only Realtor who agrees with my selling price.
Some Realtors tell you what you want to hear. In the real estate profession, this is known as "buying a listing". A Realtor who lists a property at the highest possible price is using poor strategy and more importantly, doing you a disservice.
You see, your house gets the most attention from other Realtors when it is a "new" listing. If priced properly, lots of Realtors will show it to their buyers. If you price it too high, no one will show the house and it will sit on the market for some time. Keep in mind, Buyers today have direct access, again via the web, on all sold properties in the area and they know going in, where current home market values range.
When you finally drop or reduce your price to reflect its real value, your house is "old news" and buyers may think you are growing desperate. Therefore, the prices you are offered will come in lower and lower - and you may find yourself accepting a price that is well below what you could have received, had the house been priced properly to begin with. We see this over and over again. Besides, pricing your home too high will only make similar houses for sale look that much better. Overpricing helps sell those houses, not yours.
Do all Realtors have the same education
The real estate profession is constantly changing, especially today and, as mentioned above, the best real estate professionals stay aware of those changes by continuing their education.
Many go beyond the required minimum requirements and many brokers acquire "professional designations" that show they took additional specialized courses. In our company, we include an educational component within our sales meetings, each week of the year - that's 52x times more focus on advanced education and open discussion on key, relavant topics in today's increasingly more complicated real estate environment.
This focus, belief and practice in expanded and continued education is just one of the key points of differences' you'll find in working with the Realtors and Brokers in our company.
Using a Realtor who lives in my neighborhood
Knowledge of the local market isn't determined by living in that immediate neighborhood. Your chosen Realtor should have knowledge of recent sales, schools, businesses, and so on, but that is easily achieved through research - the true difference is the Realtor you have chosen, who is excited to know the differences of what makes your property stand out over others and helps communciate those key differences to interested buyers.
Look for a Realtor who has passion, education and excellent communication skills.
Look for a Realtor that consistently is a high producer of sales in the Midcoast, year after year with a true passion for the profession and / or simply demostrates to you that raw passion and belief that anything is possible and brings that energy to your listing to best position and sell your property.
Eitherway, Sellers are looking for a Realtor who will do the most effective job of marketing their property, negotiating the most favorable terms and conditions, and communicating with them to make the process as smooth as possible.
Here you will find more helpful information about how our companies' Realtors and Brokers can best help you professionally market and represent the listing of your home or property - and successfully helping to sell it today vs. tomorrow.
