Having a team of real estate professionals that solely work with sellers has countless benefits. The team structure allows for other real estate professionals to step in and help with the less specialized work, so your listing agent can focus on getting your home sold!
Dedicated listing agents know the market, how to best market your home, have connections in the industry and will only be working for you, the seller. They are regularly comparing homes on the market. They look at square footage, location, condition, age, bedrooms, bathrooms, lot size and numerous other factors when determining the proper price, or price range for their listings. Listing agents spend a lot of time researching and know how to do it correctly.
When an agent only lists homes, they know how to make homes SHINE. They know all the right people in the industry to make your home look the best it can. Having the area’s best photographer is their secret weapon. Having a true professional photograph your home will make all the difference, they know the angles, the lighting and have the equipment to get the job done. If your home is not quite magazine ready, no problem! A dedicated listing agent will also know professional stagers, handymen, and cleaners. Since the agents know these professionals closely, and work together often, you can rest easy knowing you are getting quality work done for your home.
A Listing Agent is really working in High-Stakes Marketing. They are trying to sell a product, your home! They should have a tried and true marketing strategy and know the best ways to get your home seen by likely buyers. They should have the tools and the plan ready to go, all to get you the BEST PRICE for your home. If you are interviewing agents to list your home, be sure and ask for an outline of their marketing strategy.
It is all about being a TEAM PLAYER. Listing agents are busy, they are comparing homes, writing contracts and negotiating deals, so they need to have other people on their team they can depend on. A usual team will include an Inside Sales Agent to take calls from potential new clients and gather important initial information, and then a transaction coordinator to make sure everything gets signed and sent on time. These people keep everything organized and are a support person for your Listing Agent. They want to make sure that the Listing Agent has time to do what they do best; SELL YOUR HOME.
