Has your Listing Expired?
At the end of the day, you need an agent who knows how to sell every home they list (and has the track record of doing so). An agent committed to you, the client. Your home didn’t sell, and it should have! I understand your frustrations, and I’m here to help.
You hired an agent who assured you they could sell your home. Many months have gone by … your home did not sell … it’s now an “expired listing”. Dozens of agents are now calling you and knocking on your door.
I bet, you’re asking yourself: “What went wrong?” “Was is something with the house?” “Was the agent?” “Was it my price?” “Was the market slow?” “Something wrong or weird with my neighborhood?” The truth is that the agent you hired failed you big time. They did not get the job done. You have every right to be upset, afraid, and confused with the situation.
You may want to sell or you may really need to sell. So what are do you do next? With thousands of dollars at stake, it is critical that you get the right agent this time. Maybe you’ve already learned the hard way that fancy brochures and hundred-point marketing plans are not the answer. What are the important qualities to look for in your next agent?
- Respect: This includes communication skills, one who cares, listens, and lets you know what is happening by telling you the truth. It also includes honesty and integrity, an agent who will shoot straight with you, and work with principals and decency.
- Trustworthiness and Relatability: Look for confidence, not cockiness. Make sure you are comfortable with your agent, and that you feel free to express yourself honestly. Communication is a two way street.
- Results oriented: An agent who knows how to deliver you with results, getting you the best amount of money in the best time-frame for you, with the least amount of hassle on your part. A hard-working, aggressive, business minded agent who always has your best interest at heart.
- Leadership: It is your “boat”, but you need someone to steer, to captain the ship. An agent who will work whole-heartedly, focused on getting you the results you expect and deserve.
