What’s the one shortcut you should follow when hiring an agent to sell your home? Allow me to explain.
Buying a San Diego home? Search all homes for sale
When you sell your home, you need a professional who knows what they’re doing by your side. So, how do you make sure you hire the right person for the job?
If this is something you’ve been wondering lately, you’re in luck. I’ve got a great shortcut for choosing the right listing agent, and I’m going to share this tip with you today.
Without further ado, here is the No. 1 shortcut you need to follow when hiring a listing agent: ignore promises, ignore smiles, and ignore “bright, shiny objects.” The only thing you can depend on is an agent’s track record.
“Trust in track records, not promises and smiles.”
Any agent can promise the world, but not every agent can show evidence of their success. The right agent will be able to back up their claims and show you proof of their track record. If you want to earn as much as possible from your home sale, you’ve got to ask agents to verify their success.
Ask them how many homes they’ve sold in the past year and throughout their entire career, and ask them about their experience as a real estate professional in general. Whatever their answers are is what you should base your decision on. Trust in track records, not promises and smiles.
If you have any other questions, would like more information, or are thinking of buying or selling a home, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
