You are timing your homes entry into the market place correctly. I do wish you the greatest success in selling your home. IF you have the time you should most certainly have those previous agents as well as others COMPETE for your business. However, it is most important to know what the right parameters to use in determining who can best protect your needs. You should read a few of my previous posts regarding this in earlier Q & As.
Now, one of the five questions for which you need an answer is:
"Does Annette have by back?"
In your situation, the agent that has your back will look in in the eye and reveal the error of your ways.
Your error is not unique to you, but to every homeowner who has not properly assessed the attributes of the best agent for them. This agent will say, "Phil, if your home is worth $328, that is what it is worth. Adding the 6% seems logical, but has predictable consequences." (in all likelihood you will add additional negotiation padding on top of that)
At this precise moment, you are being interviewed. The agent who has your back can patiently wait to see if you EXPECT different results from the same, previously unsuccessful, behavior.
Your response will have an incredible influence on the strategy the agent will use to market your home. Initially, your logic will cause your home to be priced nearly 30% above what it will sell for. The agent that has your back will not offend you, as my statement may have, but will allow this agent to create and present to you the screen play for EXACTLY how the sale of your home will be unveiled.
As professionals, we walk a fine line of sharing with you the truth that will get us fired or to perfect the agility to achieve the outcome most beneficial to you within the parameter you set forth.
Never, ever forget, your real estate professional does not sell your home...YOU DO. Consequently, when your home does not sell, it is less likely the fault of the agent but the parameters from which they were required to work. (was that gently stated?)
If you need more information or would like a referral to a PA agent just give me a call.
