Who You ‘Gonna Call?

You are selling your home and you need the services of a real estate agent.  Pardon the cliche Ghost Busters terminology, but "who you 'gonna call"?  What should you look for in a real estate agent?

Firstly, you want someone that will get the job done!  How do you know?  Perhaps past performance.  Does this Realtor come recommended?  Next, you want a Realtor that you get along with and one that is a good communicator.  You need to be properly informed so this is important!  Do you feel deep inside that you can trust this person?  This is another important point.  There is no sense working with someone that you're not sure you trust or that will not make your real estate experience a good one no matter how prominent the Realtor.  How will the Realtor advertise your property for sale?  Does the Realtor have a grasp of how to market a property?  Does the Realtor have any skin in the game?  Is the Realtor putting effort forth to market your home and is there any costs associated to this marketing?  Remember, you are paying for a Realtor's services.  Finally, discard the notion that cheaper is better.  You often get what you pay for!

I hope this will help you to make the right call when looking for a Realtor to sell your home!  Thanks for reading!
