Waiting long enough to get just a small percentage more for your property could mean the difference between maintaining and regaining some equity in the property before you leave, or losing any bit of equity you may have once had.
If you have no choice but to leave the property youâ€™ll need to put it on the market but pay attention to how you do so. A realtor help in this time of difficult sales because they are not only keenly aware of the problem, if they arenâ€™t selling houses, they arenâ€™t making the living they are used to. Long time real estate agents reminisce about the â€˜good old daysâ€™ when it was a great profession to be in. They could make great commissions and have sales rolling in regularly. That day is gone.
With commissions harder to earn and sales fewer and farther between, some smart agents are finding creative ways to make sales happen even in this tough market. Find a good agent that is busy, organized, and a good communicator. Good agents will have their paperwork organized and at their fingertips when needed for reference. They will be prompt about their meetings and appointments with you, which means they are likely to be the same when dealing with potential buyers.
Creative realtors tend to find a special feature in the homes they sell and accentuate it. Marketing is just as important, if not more so, in real estate as it is in any other business. What they say about your home and what features they choose to point out or showcase can make the difference in selling or having the house sit for months.
Check around to find the best and most successful realtor in your area. Find some great selling points about your property and find a realtor that works with that concept. Ask questions of the potential realtor. After you hire one, call or stop by regularly to check in and see how itâ€™s going. There are many realtors these days, so if you arenâ€™t satisfied with the hustle, or lack thereof, hire another.
