Picking out the Right Broker to sell your home is probably one of the most important decisions an Homeowner can make and more than likely determine if their property gets sold in a reasonable time and for the most money in today's marketplace.
Your decision should be based on a number of factors:
Experience & Sucess of the Office
Results or Testimonials of past Customers
A written Marketing plan to Sell your home.
Written commitment from the Agent/Office to a Marketing plan.
Tools and Systems reflecting the latest trends in Marketing Real Estate.
Why not Sell by Owner?
The National Association of Realtors recently compiled statistics that Homeowners selling their home without a Realtor walked away from closing with about 15% less. Why go on your own when commission charged is probably less that half of the 15%?
