When selling your home, it’s in your best interest to understand who your competition actually is. At first thought, you might think that this is just other houses that are somewhat similar to your own in the same area. And while that is definitely true, there is more to the story.
Although your house is under scrutiny by buyers, your choice of agent can be a more important factor. Real estate agents are all in competition with each other. This isn’t necessarily a problem; it inspires agents to provide a better level of service.
And it’s your agents job to pursuade buyers to inspect your home and want it more than any other on the market. So, naturally you want to have the best service on offer. So, remember not only to have your house ready for the market, but also to do your homework on what services are offered by different agents before you sign.
