Picking an estate agent

When it comes to picking an estate agent can cause some confusion, because let’s be honest, not every agent out there takes the time to really get to know you.

People sell their property for different reasons, so the best estate agents find out why you are selling, and then tailor their approach to source the perfect buyer for you.

We’ve put together this quick guide to help you feel more confident about entrusting your home to a seller’s agent. We’re here to guide you towards the best possible choice, so you can feel excited about the amazing opportunities that will come knocking when you do decide to sell your property.

Selling Your Home For Monetary Reasons – Look For Experience

Just because a potential buyer falls in love with your property the moment they walk through the door, doesn’t mean it will be an easy sale.

Top real estate agents with deep experience understand the nuances of pricing your property correctly. These agents always stand in your corner and know how to negotiate on your behalf to filter out the penny pinchers in favour of serious offers which will bring you the best return on your investment.

Outstanding seller’s agents are well-connected throughout the property market, and always have their finger on the pulse of the latest industry trends. We’re honest and frank about what your home is worth, and we build a solid foundation throughout the sales process to get what you want for your property.

Selling Your Home In A Hurry – Look For An Agent Who Knows The Area

The online world of real estate is deliberately confusing to outsiders. Sure, it’s easy enough to get a few bits of information on Google, and there are always plenty of demographic reports to be found online, but this type of information can only take you so far in a house sale.

Seller’s agents who understand the local area know why your property is desirable to live in. These real estate agents have astute skills when it comes to unpacking the benefits of the local area, and connecting the dots in the buyer’s mind between the things they really want, and the unique selling points your property offers.

The fastest sales are always made by people who have the ability to sell the location first, so if you’re looking to move your property off the market as quickly as possible, work with someone who can help you sell more than just your house.

Reluctantly Selling A Home Full Of Memories – Look For An Agent Who Cares 

The best buyer is not always the first to arrive and doesn’t always offer the highest bid.

For some homeowners, selling a home can be a stressful experience. Homes are filled with memories, and oftentimes the sale of a home comes from difficult life experiences. You may have lost a loved one in your home or lived there for many years and can no longer afford to keep it.

In these challenging circumstances, homeowners tend to hope whoever buys their property will look after it for many years to come. The decision about who is the ‘best buyer’ is often a question of ‘best for whom?’

Not only should your estate agent ask potential buyers the right questions to understand their position, but they should also have enough experience to know who the most reliable and trouble-free type of buyer is, and who is likely to look after your property the way you hope they will.

A quality agency like Daniel James Residential has seasoned experience, with the ability to match the right person to the right property, so reluctant sellers can feel secure in knowing the sale of their home is in safe hands.

Buying And Selling Property Is A People’s Game

An estate agent’s job is to make sure the right people purchase the right property, for the right price. To do this, the best agents understand how to tap into the underlying hopes, dreams, fears and desires of both buyers, and sellers.

Top real estate agents use their industry experience to highlight the reasons why a sale is a good idea, and leverage their inside knowledge to fetch the best price, in the fastest possible time.

The perfect estate agent will be with you every step of the way, with sage advice, and all the tools you need to sell your home with complete confidence.

See you soon, Daniel
