Four Points from Four Walls – Choosing your sales agent

Selling your home or investment property can be a very stressful and uncertain time, choosing a sales agent to help guide you through the process is so important! Here are our top tips for selecting a sales agent: 1. Comfort matters

Meet with the agent in your home to discuss your goals. You need to be open and honest with them throughout the process of selling your home, therefore feeling comfortable with them is paramount.

2. Market knowledge

A good agent should be able to give you a through and current snapshot of the market. They should know about schools, transport and the demographic in your area, as well as what homes buyers are looking for in the current market.

3. Get out and about

Once you have a shortlist of preferred agents a great way to help you decide on who is best is to visit open homes the agent may be hosting, this is a fantastic way to see how the agent interacts with potential buyers and an easy way to introduce yourself.

4. Look local 

Look for agents who know your area and any potential buyers looking for a home in your location, along with any other properties near yours that have recently been listed or sold.
