What to Expect from an Excellent Seller’s Agent

Team-SchmidtThe seller’s agent works for the home seller. When you are ready to have a professional put a shingle into your front yard and advertise your home, you rely on this expert. While everyone knows that the real estate professional will be on hand to schedule appointments to show your property to interested buyers, there is a lot more that goes on behind the scenes.

What should you expect from an excellent sellers’ agent?

  • Market analysis. The price of your home is a touchy subject. To you, it holds so many memories and firsts that you want to get top dollar for the property. To your selling agent, there are no emotional ties. Instead, the professional will prepare a comparative market analysis that shows you what similar homes in your area sell for and how much you can increase this price because of residential remodeling or custom millwork.
  • Staging. Your agent should have a professional relationship with a staging expert in your area. If you decide that you do not want to go this route, the agent will give you advice on how to present your home to its fullest advantage. Examples include landscaping suggestions for great curb appeal and ideas for your interior presentation.
  • Marketing. Hanging up a shingle is not enough. Your agent puts the property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), creates fliers that list amenities and feature photos, engages in direct-mail flyer distribution and actively goes after showings.
  • Coordination of services. There is no need to spend countless hours on the phone. Let your seller’s agent do the work! Not only does the expert negotiate with potential buyers on your behalf, but the pro also verifies that these folks have the funds needed to buy the home. Coordinating closings is part of this deal.
