Does Your Current Real Estate Agent Have the Skills to Negotiate On Your Behalf?
It is a Bidding War Market Right Now…Negotiations are Everything.
Interpretation of the real estate market is different for individual needs, and AQM understands that. The current market does not determine what you need out of selling your home, you do.
So many people ask us “What should i be looking for in a Real Estate Agent?”
Common industry answer remains: “You want someone connected and very versed in up to date market trends and education.” However, this is how we respond when asked that question:
“Expect your Agent to be connected and educated. Look for someone who knows how to effectively negotiate in your best interest.”
Bottom line, you want the best price for your home. It was an investment and you want to maximize it. An Agent can be extremely educated and connected, whether through their own connections or a network through their Broker. However if the Agent has no negotiating skills, will any of that get you the best price for your home? The two go hand in hand.
So what are the 3 things that are most important in choosing a Broker?
Choosing a Broker by their individual track record
Choose a Broker by their ability to negotiate effectively
Choose a Broker by their ability to communicate and listen effectively
Beware of flashy discounts and reduced commission rates. An Agent or a Company that needs to lower their commission rate to win your business is a relationship founded on disaster. A Real Estate Broker is required to be educated and maintain their license and continuing education. You need to hire a Broker that understands their integrity. Having a firm understanding of the integrity and the service we extend to the public is a contributing factor to AQM’s business principles that lead us to success on every transaction.
Is Your Real Estate Agent Over Exposed?
Choose a Broker by their individual track record. Don’t be sold by a large company and base their reputation just by seeing their signs more. All agents share the same network and have access to the MLS to sell your home. Do not be led to believe a larger company can sell your home easier. Individual drive and ambition from the Broker sell a home. A larger firm2 has many agents working for them they have to be responsible for. Are they getting you the best price, or was your home lost in a volume of listings?
