Choosing a Silver Lake Listing Agent is not as easy as it appears on the surface, but one thing for sure, be certain to evaluate the agent or track record, reviews, testimonials, and personal recommendations.
In addition, our Silver Lake Listing Agents suggest that you don’t get tempted to consider a family member or personal friend based on a commission reduction or a feeling of obligation.
Choose Your Silver Lake Listing Agent-Based On Intuition
Now, think twice before hiring the person with the most “for sale” or “sold” signs in the neighborhood. This may imply that people have been consistently satisfied, but that is not necessarily always the case. Imagine if everyone feels, that an abundance of “sold” signs validates the worthiness of that agent.
This notion could perpetually feed itself for years. There are true examples of this happening. We’re not saying neighborhood success is not worth consideration and not impressive as an achievement. Our Silver Lake Listing Agents are simply advising that you trust your intuition after a thorough interview.
Always consider your own personal needs and priorities. Not every home requires staging, drone photography, video or a 360 virtual tour. But what every owner needs is hands-on attention to detail and a Silver Lake Listing Agent with outstanding listening skills, and the ability to make things happen.
Focusing On Selling For Top Dollar
Focusing on selling for top dollar involves a variety of considerations, beginning with a Silver Lake Listing Agent who really cares about getting you the last $50,000.
You deserve an agent who doesn’t think “the commission on that last $50,000 is peanuts so I would rather just move on”. Now, also consider the agent’s negotiating track record and consistency for networking with the best agents and the best clients.
Don’t Limit Your Resources
Think about a Silver Lake Listing Agent who only specializes in your geographic location. This agent is networking with a very limited group of agents and potential clients for the potential exposure of your property.
Let’s say a home ranges in value from $1,000,000 to $4,000,000 for a specific area, from fixer uppers on a small lot to brand new, recently built homes on a large lot. You plan to sell a home worth approximately $2,000,000.
Would it not make more sense to consider a Silver Lake Listing Agent who casts a wider net, going several miles north, south-southeast and maybe west of your location, who specializes selling homes to clients in the price range of $2,000,000 to $3,000,000?
This agent already is connected with buyers in your price range and agents with buyers in your price range who have been seriously looking for a home within a close radius who may not, on their own just fall upon your house.
A Silver Lake Listing Agent who reaches out to everyone in the area but certainly goes way beyond that, might provide you a lot more benefit, resulting in a faster sale and very possibly a better price, especially if the buyer is brought into your neighborhood from another area that offers less house and fewer amenities for the same price as yours.
In conclusion, we do think a neighborhood specialist should be someone you interview, but also add to your list of 3 Silver Lake Real Estate Agents to interview an agent that successfully sells lots of homes, in your particular price range and in three or four areas most adjacent to your area, still within 5 miles from the location of your home.
