When you need to sell your home, you want to get top dollar for it and sell it quickly. In order to meet these expectations, you need to find a qualified real estate agent who can provide you the hard work and dedication you need in this important transaction. Here are some of the best services your real estate agent and their team can provide for you when you are selling your home.
Capture Professional Photos
When you hire a real estate agent to list your home for sale, there are a number of activities they should be able to complete for you as part of the sales process. And one of the most important is the task of taking great photos of your home to market it properly.
Because buyers mainly shop for homes online, you need to have a full and complete portfolio of photos taken of the inside and outside of your home. These photos will showcase your home and all its amenities and do a really good job of providing a layout and overview of your home inside and out. The photos should draw in a buyer and give them a great idea of what your home includes, so they want to tour your home to get a closer look.
Your real estate agent should be able to take professional-looking photos or hire a professional photographer to capture the right images. The photos should not include anything visually off-putting in the home or be blurry and out of focus. And the photos of your home should show each of the larger rooms from several angles. A virtual tour or video tour of your home is also a great perk that your realtor can arrange to additionally showcase your home.
Know the Right List Price
Next to providing attractive and thorough photos of your home, another important task your real estate agent should provide for your home listing is an accurate list price. The price you list your home for can either attract buyer's attention or deter buyers from putting forth their interest in your home.
If, for example, you price your home too high compared to similar homes in the area, buyers will recognize this overpricing and won't show any interest in viewing or even making an offer. As your home sits on the market without any interest, additional buyers can perceive there is something wrong with your home.
As this continues, you will lose out on time on the market and the potential of a sale. You can lower your price later but the negative stigma around your home will still be there to affect its sale-ability. Therefore, make sure your real estate agent can research the market and know the best price to list your home at for immediate buyer attention and activity for a quick sale.
