What What Should You Look for When Hiring a Real Estate Agent? Part 2

Thanks for joining me today. I wanted to give you a few more tips on what you should look for in an agent when you are getting ready to sell your home.
  1. Tech savvy - You know that there is always some new social media site or new tech tool out there and it’s important that your agent knows too. A good listing agent is able to use this technology as a way to market your home. One of the things we are doing is our video blog. Not a lot of agents are doing this, but it’s a great way to get in front of a large audience.
  2. Marketing budget - You may not know that a lot of the extra marketing strategies actually come out of the agent’s own personal pocket. You need an agent that is successful enough to have a budget that can best showcase your home.
  3. Support staff - There are a lot of different details when it comes to marketing your home and closing the transaction. You want an agent with an assistant and support staff to handle just your listing and not let anything fall through the cracks. Don’t let anything fall through the cracks.  Just the other day my assistant told me she had never worked for an agent who had business like I did and she never realized how much work goes into properly marketing a property.
Thank you so much for watching today. If you have any questions about what you need to look for in an agent or if you are ready to buy or sell, please give me a call. I’d love to help you with all of your real estate needs.
