You would expect that a successful real estate agent serves many clients, and offers a wide variety of listings to interest a wide variety of buyers. However, when you list your home, you also expect that yours is the most important of all those listings. After all, in your eyes, your home is the hottest property on the market!
Let your agent know that you expect to hear reports about showings, and beyond that, there are other hot topics of conversation you may like to discuss while your home is on the market.
Expect your agent to keep you informed about other homes for sale on the market in your price range, recent sales of similar homes, as well as any homes that come onto the market as your competition. Your agent should be able to gauge the overall activity in your area, and let you know if the activity you’re experiencing is in line with the rest of the market. If you’re not getting enough activity, you may need to adjust your price to be exposed to a new group of buyers. It also may help if you paint that room with the dark walls, replace the worn carpet, or work on your curb appeal. Your agent should let you know if there is anything you can do to improve your chances of a sale.
You’ll also want to hear the comments of prospective buyers who have viewed your home, as well as other real estate agents who have accompanied these buyers. Based on that feedback, your agent may have suggestions about improving the “showability” of your home.
If you haven’t heard from your agent or their staff lately, give them a call and ask what you can do to get your home sold. Ask them if you need to adjust your price. Ask them what you can do to help your home sell. Never, ever be afraid to ask!
