Top Three Mistakes People Make When Choosing a Selling Realtor

Here’s my most recent Real Estate Education on the three mistakes people make when choosing a selling realtor.

  1. Choosing a friend or relative just because of who they are. This may be the biggest investment you make in your life, you want to make sure your realtor is the right person for the job, and not hire someone because you feel obligated.
  2. Moving forward with an agent who agrees with your selling price. The goal is to sell your home for the most amount of money in the shortest period of time. Pricing the home right is crucial to accomplish this goal.
  3. Listing with an agent who has the lowest commission. A realtor’s ability to negotiate is probably their most important skill as a listing agent. If they didn’t care enough about their own money to negotiate their own commission, how can you be certain they care about your money? Thousands of dollars are made or lost at the negotiation table. Choosing the right realtor will earn you more money and cause you less frustration.
