Number 1 Mistake Sellers Make

Number 1 Mistake Sellers Make

Hi James Lombardi here w/ the Joshua Smith Real Estate Group at RE/MAX. Today I’m going to tell you about the number one mistake homeowners make when hiring a Realtor to sell their home. Look I get it; the most important thing for you is to get top dollar for your home. And when you are interviewing Realtors they should be recommending a list price for your home. But the number one mistake a seller can make is to choose the Realtor that is recommending the highest list price. If you do you’ve probably just locked yourself into a listing contract w/ an agent that has promised the world and will deliver nothing but frustration.

As a seller the most important factors you should be concerned w/ when interviewing a Realtor is their experience level and their marketing plan. Be sure your agent or their team has been in the business for a few years and either they or their team has sold at least 25 homes. Do not choose a friend or family member who is licensed and does real estate on the side. These are the folks that discount their commission and frankly just aren’t experienced enough to negotiate top dollar and protect your best interests.

Your Realtor should also be able to clearly explain to you how they plan to market your home for sale. Ask to see samples of the materials they will be use. Any Realtor can input a home into the Multiple Listing Service, but if it is not properly presented or marketed to the 1000s of channels beyond the MLS you may be selling yourself short. We have an aggressive 48 point marketing strategy that maximizes your exposure and ensures you will get top dollar for your home.

If you are considering selling your home we’d love to interview for the job. Call me today to schedule your no hassle, no obligation consultation. We are experts at marketing your home for sale, negotiating to get you top dollar and protecting your best interests. I can be reached by phone, text at 602-796-3840 or email Thank you and have an amazing day!
