“How much do you charge” is often the first question. Commission varies based on the broker, company (if associated with a brokerage), and services provided. Selecting a broker solely on the commission can be very risky, and the loss from your home selling for less than it could have can far outweigh the difference in the commission between an average and a great broker!
Get the BEST Offer: Getting offers in this market is easy – choosing the BEST buyer while avoiding all of the potential pitfalls that can occur during a real estate transaction is the challenge. Is the buyer pre-qualified AND pre-approved, for how much, are there any conditions for final loan approval? Are there contingencies that could cause the sale to fall through? If the appraisal is lower than the sale price, can the buyer pay the difference? What happens if you can’t find a new home to purchase once yours sells? Are there other legalities requiring additional negotiation and an extensive understanding of real estate law? Some brokers have a greater understanding of transaction subtleties and are better negotiators, which can make a world of difference!
Marketing Savvy: Marketing varies by broker! You need one who understands the market, is savvy about pricing, can identify ways to improve and stage your home cost-effectively to get the best deal, and offers a comprehensive marketing package to generate the right kind of interest in your home.
For proven expertise in establishing your home value and/or searching for a new or existing home, please call Jan at (303) 520-4340.
