buying your first home - what you should know

What Makes A Realtor Stand Out When Selling A Home?

Are you in the process of selling your home and need to find a realtor to help you do it? If so, you may be wondering what traits you should be looking for in a realtor that can make them stand out among the rest. Here are a few traits that you should look out for.

The Realtor Has Plenty Of Sales Experience

The best way to get better at doing anything is through experience, which is why you want to find a realtor with plenty of experience with selling homes. Ask how many years they have been selling homes, how many homes they have sold in the past year, and how many clients they are currently working with. If it doesn't sound like the realtor is consistently selling homes, then start looking for somebody else. You want somebody with experience so that your home can be sold quickly and for the right price. 

The Realtor Is Easy To Reach

In your initial conversations with any realtor, take note of how easy it is to reach them. Do they pick up the phone or respond to text messages right away, or do they only get back to you at odd times that do not work for your schedule? Since this is going to be someone you are in constant contact with until your home is sold, consider the communication between the two of you and if you foresee it being a problem. Just make sure to be realistic since realtors are people, too, and have lives outside of their jobs. 

The Realtor Is Honest

It's important that you can trust your realtor and that they are honest with you and potential buyers throughout the home-selling process. You definitely do not want to work with a realtor that does not act ethically. If they are not going to be honest with sellers, it will cause you to question if they are not being honest with you. Make sure to take note of any behavior that you see in a realtor that shows that they have integrity. 

The Realtor Is A Great Communicator

While the home-selling process is definitely complicated, it doesn't have to be explained to you in ways that are difficult to understand. Make sure that your realtor is communicating things to you in a way that you fully understand what is going on. You shouldn't end conversations and still have questions about what is going on with the sale of your home.
