If you would like to work with a highly skilled real estate professional in your area, I would be delighted to recommend someone to you. You see agents in the profession know what to look for in an outstanding agent. What is their Internet presence, do they make custom flyers, do circle mailings around your home, syndicate you to 50 or more websites, what is their presence in Google, do they do broker opens for you, and what are their real estate certifications? These are just some of the concerns, but the bottom line is that your agent may have done all this and more for you already. The market is tough but you will need every opportunity to sell a home that is not at the current market price. Remember though price will be your number one factor in whether you can sell a home or not, and also remember that this is a historic buyers market.
