It’s a huge investment, and one of the biggest mistakes a home seller can make is allowing their agent to be the only one to market their property. By keeping your expectations realistic, and enlisting the help of a real estate agent you trust, you can sell your home without the struggle. A real estate agent can save you both time and money by finding and helping you find your ideal buyer, make an offer on your property and then selling your home at a premium. Here are a few pointers on how to find the right real estate agent to help you sell your home.

Finding the right agent

Finding the right agent can be tricky. As a listing agent, you need to know that your agent is in it for the long haul and has a true passion for their work. Many times an agent will agree to work with you and then suddenly there is a change of plans, or maybe they have a new family member and need to spend more time with their family. The reason why you find a good agent is because they genuinely care about the home buying and selling process. If you are an agent, be prepared for long-term relationships with clients.

Make sure you're prepared

Don't wait until it's too late to sell your home. Here are a few things you can do now to increase your chances of selling your home with an agent: Review the market, Set realistic goals, but don't stop there. You should also have an idea of how much you are hoping to make in the sale, the timeframe you want to be in your new home and how much money you will need in an emergency. Analyze home appraisals Many sellers don't review their homes' current valuations to see how the property is trending. This will help determine a realistic selling price that is within your reach and provides a baseline for the negotiations. Get your paperwork in order You should have all the paperwork you'll need from your home's seller representation agent in order before you start looking for a new home.

Tips for a successful sale

Some of the most common issues buyers and sellers face are related to issues around the home, the agent and the transaction. While one’s expectations may be high for an inspection and appraisal, these services should be covered by an independent appraiser or one hired by the agent and inspected before the deal is done. Without an inspector, buyers and sellers could be faced with serious problems down the road, especially if the appraisal is not done correctly. This could take longer than the actual timeframe to close, and this may cost you thousands of dollars. An appraisal is required in almost all California counties. Avoid paying for an unlicensed home inspector that could allow for problems with lead paint.
