With things moving so fast in the Orange County Real Estate market many consumers who are thinking about selling a home in this area typically forget about the importance of choosing the right listing agent to sell their home.
In this post we will cover the top three things that consumers should look for in a listing agent to help them effectively sell a home in Orange County, or anywhere else in California for that matter.
Track Record & Expertise
The first thing to look for in a listing agent is to find someone who has a verifiable track record of experience with buying and selling Real Estate in the local market. This step is important because, experienced Realtors possess time tested skills and it’s better to go with someone who has experience at buying and selling a home rather than someone who is new and searching for their first clients.
Marketing Does Matter
Another aspect of an experienced Real Estate agent is choosing someone who has good marketing experience and won’t just list a home for sale in the newspaper and other older forms of media. In today’s world, especially when it comes to Real Estate, it’s important to choose a Realtor who can guarantee that the home for sale will be everywhere that potential homebuyers will be. This includes the Internet since almost 95% of home buyers go online first these days to search for homes before physically viewing the property.
Ask For References
Last of all, but most important, a Realtor can say that they have experience but, do they have the References to back up their claims?
An experienced Realtor shouldn’t hesitate to post references or testimonial letters from their happy clients online. Those references will only lead to them generating more business and establishing a great reputation in the local Real Estate market if they have a history of delivering a good experience for their clients.
