The most important decision a Seller can make is to hire the most qualified, experienced, full-time Realtor with expertise in marketing their property, negotiating the sale and taking the sale through the escrow process. Your agent will be your representative in marketing your home to the public. This will include advertising on the MLS and internet, in the local papers and magazines and on printed color brochures and postings/mailings. It also includes answering the phone and returning calls! You’ll want to be sure you are receiving the best service possible and top quality advertising verbiage and photography. When interviewing agents, be sure to ask specific questions about what exactly they promise to do to market your home and ask to see examples of their brochures, ads, internet advertising, etc. You’ll want to ask them for copies of everything they do for you after you list your property with them to be sure they are fulfilling their promises and representing your property professionally.
Your Realtor will be representing you in contracts and in the escrow process. You’ll want to hire an agent with expertise and experience to take you through the transaction without any problems.
While inventory is low in many areas, not all areas are experiencing a Seller’s Market. Make sure you see and discuss a thorough market analysis of your area’s market activity before setting the listing price.
When considering an offer on your property, be sure to receive a “pre-approval” letter from the buyer’s lender. You’ll want to have some assurance the purchaser is qualified financially before accepting an offer and opening escrow.
