Selecting the Right Agent to Sell Your HomeIf you have decided to sell your home, it could be for any number of reasons. Perhaps you just need more space for an expanding family, or your lifestyle has changed and your current house just doesn't fit your needs anymore. Sometimes, the reason is much more stressful, such as a divorce or unexpected job relocation. Either way, the last thing you need is a high-pressure salesperson or someone who is unprofessional or doesn't understand the current real estate market.
Our team has represented clients from every walk of life and of varying ages and cultural identities. We can handle almost anything when it comes to selling your home. We list and sell properties throughout Austin and most of the surrounding areas.
When you are selecting a Realtor, make sure you find someone whose personality doesn't grate on you from the beginning. Even if an agent has terrific credentials and has sold a lot of homes over the years, they may not make you feel comfortable and they may be just "phoning it in" (i.e. not trying very hard anymore). This is a red flag, because you will be dealing very closely with whomever you choose, so choose wisely. It's also important to note that this person will be your representative to other agents and to the public at large throughout the period of time when your home is on the market.
Also, you want an agent who will tell you the TRUTH about your home. Many agents just want the listing so badly that they will just go along with whatever price you select, with no regard for the market. The mentality here is, "I'll just take the listing, then we'll work on getting it reduced later." This is a huge mistake, since you will end up losing out on the initial buyers who would have seen your home but the price is too high. Our team is skilled at pricing homes to sell as quickly as possible and at the maximum market price.
In a competitive real estate market like Austin's has been for a number of years now, you also need a Realtor who will assist you in staging the home to sell quicker.
There's no magic formula for choosing the best agent. It's usually a combination of factors that go into the decision making process. We would love the opportunity to speak with you and/or meet with you if you are considering selling your home here in the general Austin area.
