Buying a home is most likely the largest purchase you will ever make. Selling your home can be exciting and scary all at the same time. You will have many questions about how long it will take, how to choose a realtor, and whether or not you will at least get close to your asking price. However, the right realtor will be able to give you some home selling tips Tampa. Here are a few tips to help you choose a realtor.
Start by going online to websites that have homes listed for sale, homes that have sold, and foreclosures in your area. Then, write down the firms/realtors that sold these homes and their contact info. In addition, you can scan through your local newspaper or drive through your local area to see which firm/realtor has the most listings.
When you’re driving around your local area, call to make appointments to view some of the homes. Pay attention to the way the agent acts and how knowledgeable he/she is about the area and the home. Be sure to bring up some objections to see how he/she handles them.
After doing your research, write down the top 3-4 firms/agents based on the number of homes they sold in the last year and other information you’ve learned. Call these agents and ask if they would be interested in listing your home. Set up the appointments at least 2 hours apart. You don’t want the agents to overlap.
Take time to interview each of the agents- they will most likely bring a notebook of comps, which are comparable homes that they have sold, as well as information regarding what they do to market homes.
Finally, choose the agent that you are most comfortable with and that was able to give satisfactory answers to your questions. If you want to sell your home fast, you will want to choose an agent that has the highest productivity. In addition, make sure to choose an agent that is willing to give you some home selling tips in Tampa.
