These are the first three factors that any owner thinks about when they decide to sell their property. It always starts with how much am I going to get and very quickly ends with; how much is that going to cost me. Though once you start the process, you find in your research that there are so many other aspects of the sale process which makes these three areas not as important as you initially thought.
What you need to focus your energy on are the following. Which agent is going to get me the best price, through strategy and negotiation skills, what is a reasonable amount of money to invest into my property in order for it to get the optimal price and what are past comparable sales indicating versus how much I’m willing to take. Through this process, you must be honest with yourself, not buy into agents who are selling you an inflated appraisal to win and don’t be tricked into taking the discount agent.
If you begin the process with this mindset, you will make better decisions from the beginning. The agent you choose will make the difference on your future, your family’s future. The wrong agent will may come up tens of thousands of dollars short of your overall potential, imagine which direction your life would go if they did. This isn’t a game, the choice you must make matters so much more than you really understand in the beginning. The last thing you want to do is find out during or at the end it was the wrong choice. Be patient through the interviewing process, invest money into your asset to get the best out of the market and trust the agent you choose to do right by you and they will.
