Common Selling Mistakes: Choosing an Agent Based Only on Friendship
By Sharon Anderson, Sales Agent, Prudential Spencer-Hughes Real Estate
In this market of more sellers than buyers, a seller needs to choose a real estate agent as carefully as you would any other professional. Top professionals in law and medicine rarely use the term “no problem.” The best professionals listen well and then tell you what you need to know, not what they think you want to hear. At Prudential Spencer Hughes we try very hard to do the same. It is not just property that we sell, it is our good advice.
There can be a lot of money at stake in seller decisions when a property must compete with many others that are equally nice. If your choice of agent turns out to be a friend, consider it a wonderful coincidence; just do not make friendship a prerequisite. Consider your interests first. There is a lot of skill and energy involved in making sure your property sells early and at the high range of its group. That ability and commitment is the Prudential Spencer Hughes difference.
For many folks, stress avoidance may be the top priority. Some of today’s buyers can be demanding, plus new regulations are daunting. My team and I have the collective experience to temper demands, counter offers effectively, address all the new rules, and most important, get your property ready to stand out. Call me to ask how I would market your property.
