4 Common Mistakes To Avoid When Hiring A Listing Agent

which agent is right for you?4 Common Mistakes To Avoid When Hiring A Listing Agent

You're about to make one of the most important financial decisions you can make:  choosing the real estate agent to sell your Warren County home. 

Make the wrong choice and you may literally spend extra months on the market and sacrifice tens of thousands of dollars in price.   High stress levels can follow if you're not getting the support and expertise you need from your agent.  But it's relatively easy to avoid some of the most common mistakes made when selecting your listing agent AND making sure you get the proper support through your home selling experience. 

So here are four pitfalls to avoid when selecting your listing agent:

  • Believing buyers care who your listing agent is.  They don't.  If you want to brag to your coworkers and golf buddies that you're listed with some prestige name, go for it.  But the buyers?  They're not impressed.  The home and how it is presented is the ONLY thing they care about.  So make sure your listing agent can provide what YOU need AND what the buyer's need.
  • Thinking all agents are the same.  Even within our own offices, we have variety.  One agent may be a wizard at marketing and selling a home while another's focus is on serving buyers.
  • Hiring an agent just because you know them.  They may be a coworker, your kid's teacher, a friend, a neighbor, but if they don't have the skill sets you need, it might prove to be an awkward relationship.  Check out their credentials before committing.
  • Not checking out the agent's marketing of their current homes for sale.  How do they market these homes for sale?  This is where the rubber meets the road.  If the pictures are lousy and the marketing copy full of typos, don't expect perfection for your own home.  And want to know what keeps more buyers from looking at homes?  Lousy pictures!
