Is Your Realtor Really Working For You?
As a realtor, it's important to take your job seriously. A realtor needs to be on the ball, ready to show, ready to talk, and eager to help you and the buyer when you need it. As a client, it's important to make sure you're getting the services you're paying for. Is your experience selling your home working out in your favor? Make sure it is.
This is the Value of Honesty
A simple way to find out if your real estate agent is honest is to ask them for some of their recent clients' contact information. Any past seller is required to give their permission for the agent to provide their contact information. Once you you have some names and contact information, call or email to ask about their experience with your agent.
Accessibility Plays a Role You Didn't Consider
If you call your realtor with questions and they don't respond within a day or two, it can be frustrating. Life happens, and there could be a situation. When this is a regular occurrence, however, it could be time to reevaluate or modify your realtor-client contract.
What are the Results
It's normal for a home to sit for a while before it sells, but if it has been listed for 6 months without a single showing, it should be taken as a red flag. Either the listing price
is not right, which the real estate agent should have knowledge of, or something is going on behind the scenes that is keeping people from being interested in your home. It's time to call your agent and get some definite answers about what is going on.
If you're thinking your realtor is neglecting their job, you might be right. Don't hesitate to chat with them. They are supposed to work for you. After all, you're paying them.
