5 Reasons You Should Care Which Real Estate Agents Sell Your Home

Posted: January 08, 2016 by Alex Fowler

Selling your home is a big deal. Most people sell a house only a few times in their entire life, and they want it done right and through the right person. You might think real estate agents are all the same, but it’s important to consider why you should care who sells your home.

Here are 5 reasons you should care who sells your home.

1.) This is Your Home

Whether you’ve lived in your Springfield, MO home for 2 years or 28 years, take the time to find an honest, good, and reliable Springfield real estate agent. 

Tip: Call different real estate agents and see if they want to get to know you.

2.)  Marketing Strategy

Does your Springfield real estate agent understand how to do real estate marketing? Make sure that they are willing to put effort and time to market your home the right way. Make sure they will inform you on their marketing strategies.

Tip: Ask your real estate agent how they will market your home.

3.) Compassion

You are usually attached to your home so selling your home can be an emotional process. Make sure the real estate agent understands that. They should take time and answer all of your Springfield real estate questions that you may have.

Tip: Let your agent know what your emotions are and how you are feeling. That way you both will be on the same page.

4.) Honesty

You need someone who is honest. The agent needs to tell you the challenges they may face selling your home and their strategy to overcome them. Also, if they think that you need a higher or lower price on your home, they need to be able to share this with you.

Tip: You expect and want your Springfield real estate agent to be honest with you so you should be honest with them also.

5.) Open Communication

Make sure you understand the best way to communicate with your agent and the best way they can communicate with you. Be sure to know how available they will be for you and how available you will be for them.

Tip: Remember your real estate agent has a life, too. If they say not to call them after 8pm, it’s important to understand and respect this request.
