Using A Local Real Estate Agent
Using a local agent has many benefits when selling your home. An agent from another city can list your home but are they getting you top dollar for home? A local, passionate agent is the best way for you to receive the absolute best service!
Open Houses and Walk-Throughs
When you hire a professional real estate agent, they will be able to showcase your home in the best way possible. They will be able to point out the details that make your home the perfect option for your potential buyers. Also, a local agent will be available at your call to come to your home in case of a last-minute appointment.
Upgrades To Your Home
A local real estate agent knows which upgrades increase the value of your home specific to the location and neighbourhood you are in. Inquiring with your local agent prior to starting any renovations is a great idea! They can give you insight on top trends and how to get you the most out of your dollar.
Researching the Market
When buying a home, a local realtor will have a better understanding of future developments and neighbourhood awareness. When using an out of town agent, they may not be aware of a large condo development replacing the home beside the home you. A local agent is tuned in to the local area and can guide you to the perfect time to list your house.
Marketing and Pricing Strategy
Strategic pricing is another critical marketing component, and failing to price correctly is a common error. Setting your home value too low can earn you less than your home’s potential and give your buyers a red flag that deters them.
Even in a seller’s market, you don’t want to set the price too high. If you do, you might miss out on buyers looking in specific budget brackets. A local agent knows what houses in the area have sold for in the past, and can give you the best estimate of what to list for.
Selling with the Passion of a Local
Your local agent will present your home and area with the love and appreciation that you have for your own home. They can fully communicate the value of your home within the local market. These qualities can make a big difference in a potential buyer.
