As we all know only too well, selling a property can be a challenge at the best of times and a nightmare at worst, and if you are about to put your home on the market, this article was written with you in mind. Your choice of real estate agent is critical, especially if you are looking for a quick sale, and there is a new service for Australian homeowners who are looking to sell, in the form of an online real estate agent-finding service.
Check out Agent Performance
Using LocalAgentFinder, you can instantly access critical performance data of all the registered real estate agents, and what’s more, this service is free to the homeowner, as the agent-finder receives a small commission from the agent. The process is straightforward, you simply enter information in the given fields; type of property, number of bedrooms and estimated value, then enter the postal address of the property and within seconds, you will receive a list of the top real estate agents that service your area.
When you want to know about a real estate agent, the agent-finding service gives you the following:
- The number of units the agents has sold this year.
- The average price of property units sold.
- The average number of days a property is listed before being sold.
- The number of units currently listed.
The other important information is the agent’s rate of commission, which can easily be compared with the national average, so you will know which agents are charging top rates. Of course, the rate of commission isn’t the only focus for the seller, and it might be better to pay a slightly higher commission if the agent can facilitate a quick sale.
As with any asset, presentation is everything, and when you engage the services of a real estate agent, you would expect your property to be photographed by a professional and listed with detailed descriptions. The majority of agents now offer virtual viewing, which allows the potential buyer to enjoy a virtual tour of the property, and if they like what they see, a viewing appointment can be arranged. While on the topic of real estate, here is an article on how to cut costs when moving, which might be useful when the property is finally sold.
When looking at real estate agents, you want complete transparency regarding cost, with no hidden extras, and if you use the free agent-finding service, you can gain all the information you need to make an informed decision. Selling real estate is all about performance, and by using a real estate agent-finding service, you have access to all the critical data with just a few clicks of the mouse.
If you are looking for a quick sale and are prepared to invest a little, you could have your home staged, which involves furniture and decoration to make your home more attractive to the buyer, and a good real estate agent would have access to home staging services, should they be required. Packages range from merely décor to a facelift, when the property is fully renovated. Click here for government information about buying and selling property.
