Selling your house is a very big decision. It sways economic aspects and touching aspects. A decision of this nature comprises the people closest to you. Sometimes, selling your home becomes a family choice and when the time comes, the key question arises: how can I sell it?

Even though it is possible for you to vend your house on your own, working with a real estate agent is the most excellent alternative. They will assist you with all the needed paperwork to transfer real estate, make sure that the house is sold at the most excellent price and eventually counsel you in the process of buying and selling the property. Additionally, being part of a network, you can place your house in a shorter time than you could do on your own.

Before choosing your real estate agent, make sure of these 5 key points.

Sales commission:

It is significant to be familiar with from the beginning how much charge will be charged once the sale has been made. More often than not the commissions go from 3 to 5% of the total value of the sale. Now and then commissions can reach up to 7% which will be fine, as long as they provide because for the percentage with the work, marketing plan and asset they will make to sell the property. Keep in mind, the charge of a real estate agent must be allied with the price of the real estate, the effort and the knowledge that will be used to put up for sale your possessions.

Professional Photographs:

The photos of the property will be the first impression in the eyes of buyers. Frequently, real estate agents use their cell phones to take pictures of the property. That is why those who use professional photography services will attract a greater number of interested parties, so they can sell the property at the best price and in less time.

Real Estate Virtual Reality Technologies:

The real estate industry is in a radical change because the introduction of virtual reality to the countryside is changing the way in which houses are searched. Although it is relatively new and few agents manage it, those who do manage to sell the properties 10 times faster than others. If your agent uses it, you know he is at the forefront.

Exclusiveness:

This last point is very important. Many times we think that the more agents and brokers sell the property, the greater the scope they have to sell it and the faster the sale process will be. Even though it could be justified by the saying “the more the better” in the real estate industry, it is not. By granting the exclusivity of the property, you allow the agent to secure a sales commission for which you can justify investing in professional services to sell your home. It is a simple rule of logic, if there is no exclusivity, the agent cannot ensure its commission for which will not invest in professional services and therefore the house will take longer to sell. One can also take help from any experts like Kris Thorkelson of My Place Realty’s and Maryanne Thorkelson a Winnipeg-based entrepreneur whose main aim is to provide quality apartments that people can be proud to call home.
