Things they Say
Now that I have your attention. Some Realtors will say anything to secure a listing and earn a commission. It is important when a realtor approaches you to really understand where a realtors loyalty lies. Is it to the you, as the seller, or is it to the buyer? As your agent you want to make sure that there is not a conflict of interest.
Does it Make it Difference?
I was holding an open house recently and a seasoned real estate agent approached me and said, “Why are you spending all of this money on brochures and photography? The home is going to sell anyway.” As Realtors, it is our job to maximize the selling price of a home through proper marketing. It is not enough to just throw it up on the MLS system.
