Sell My House St Louis & St Charles, MO
Whether you are gearing up to move to a bigger home or you are moving to an entirely different city, selling your home can be both exciting and stressful in the same breath. One of the ways to ensure the sale of your home goes as smoothly as possible is working with the right real estate agent who will maximize your profits.
Seller agents should come with a tool chest of resources for their clients, and we thought it might be helpful to breakdown what your agent should be doing for you. Here are our top tips for helping you to Identify the right agent to work with.
Positioning Your Home to Sell
Maximizing the profit for your home is the mission for a seller’s agent. Your agent should be learning the unique details about your property that will attract the right buyer. Your agent should also be alerting you to anything that might be problematic to buyers (within reason) so those things can be handled prior to placing your home on the market. Gateway Realty will also offer resources and professional referrals (like handymen and home stagers) that can help you get your home prepared to hit the market.
Priced to Sell
Experienced agents, like ours, are knowledgeable about the housing market in St. Louis & St. Charles County. They will be able to pull the appropriate data that will help you select the perfect asking price to help result in the best sale price for your home. Our agents will also be able to help you factor in what kind of repairs or updates might be worth your money, or which ones might price you out of the market.
Marketing Your Home to Sell
Our experienced seller’s agents know the value of good marketing and should be able to share that with you during a listing consultation. This might include who they use for taking photos of your home, and how they interact with other agents in the area who can bring you serious buyers. In today’s real estate market, an agent should have a social media strategy that you can ask about as well. They should discuss open houses and how to schedule them, as well as setting you up with the basic physical marketing such as a yard sign, lockbox, and in-home listing information.
Negotiations and Closing
Finally, a seller’s agent should be ready to handle buyer agents and their list of demands with ease. Buyers can often ask for the world, as they are wanting the best deal possible but your agent should be looking out for you and your bottom line. An agent should also be comfortable giving you the nitty-gritty about your property and any offers that come your way that are solid but might not meet your ideal expectation. A good agent won’t let you walk away from a deal they know isn’t likely to come around again.
