Do you want to avoid waiting the possible months, or in some cases the years it can take to sell your home? Many sellers get frustrated after their home has been on the market for a long period of time and end up selling it at a much lower price than they expected. Sellers who want to find a buyer for their home quickly sometimes face difficult challenges which make it especially important for them to find a knowledgeable and experienced real estate agent. If you are in such a situation, you should consider some key steps to finding a buyer who will be willing to pay an acceptable price in the current market in the shortest possible time frame.
Choosing a Top Realtor
The number one factor in selling a home fast is choosing the right realtor, one that can beat the odds against your home selling for a price that is less than it’s worth. Do you know that the top 2% of all realtors in the entire country no matter what city you’re located in, they sell 90% of all the real estate sold? That means that the other 98% of realtors are only selling 10%. So you must choose a realtor who is in that top 2% tier. Those are the realtors that control the market. They have the largest market share and the most expertise in selling homes. So when choosing your realtor you want to know you have one in the top 2% of all realtors. That top agent that is going to be able to effectively advertise, market, get buyers to view you home, and get you the most money in the quickest time possible for your home.
Experience is Essential
Next, you want to make sure that you have an experienced realtor. The National Association of Realtors estimates that an inexperienced realtor can cost you, the seller, 10% of your purchase price when selling your home. So sometimes the cheapest, most inexperienced, inexpensive realtor is not going to be the best in the long run. Ten percent, if you calculate that on your home value… that’s a lot of money, especially for a higher-priced home.
Then as it relates to marketing, the question to be answered is, what can your realtor do for you? What is their marketing plan? How do they intend to sell your home? Here at the Batchelor Group we intend to put every home listed on over 400 websites all over the Internet to blast your home to potential buyers. Here’s a fact you may not know, over 80% of buyers find their home on the Internet? Why would you not want to be on every website that it was possible to be on? Also, we’re going to have virtual tours, broker opens, open houses, brochures. Anything it would or could take to get your home sold, that’s what we’re committed to do for you as our clients. Let’s not forget pricing, pricing is extremely important when you want to sell your home fast. Now that doesn’t mean you have to give away the farm, but you do want to price your home competitive enough that you have more buyers through your property than not. The more foot traffic and Internet traffic that you get to your property… the more potential money in your pocket quickly!
Photos, Virtual Tours, and Networking
Top notch real estate agents know the importance of using all of the tools available to them for finding buyers such as photos, virtual tours, and networking. Photos are an important part of marketing your home. At the Batchelor Group we will take a minimum of 30 photos per property. Some agents think as little as four, five or six measly pictures are great enough, but that is not what the average Internet savvy buyer is looking for in today’s market. Also, it’s important to consider virtual tours which are going to increase the activity and amount of time the buyer is going to spend on the Internet when they are looking at your home specifically. Networking is important as well in considering how your agent is going to get it out to other realtors. At least half of the homes on the market will be sold by another realtor, so that agent needs to have a networking circle of investors. This network may include family or anyone within a broader networking circle that will be able to get your home out there to as many potential buyers as possible.
