See why picking the right real estate agent is critical to having success when selling a home. Choosing a Realtor is a vital piece of the puzzle.
Do you know how to pick a Real Estate agent? Clearly most people do not. The Real Estate industry has a low satisfaction rating and much of this has to do with people making bad choices when choosing a Realtor.
So who's fault is that? Does the consumer play any role in this? In my opinion they certainly do. Many consumers do not take the necessary time or effort in choosing a real estate agent when selling a home. Consumers do silly things by seeing a real estate sign with an agents name on it or visiting an open house. This is not the best way to choose a real estate agent!
In fact if this is how you go about finding an agent you are bound to make a big mistake. When you are selling a home time should be taken to carefully go through an interview process. There should be multiple agents that are interviewed with questions that will tell you how good the agent will perform.
For example what is the agents list price to sale price ratio? What are the average days on the market? What is the success rate of all the homes the agent has listed?
There is nothing better than a track record for success in real estate.
