One of the most important decisions you will make when selling your Perry Park, Larkspur or Castle Rock Colorado home is the REALTOR you choose. Be sure to find someone you feel comfortable with. If you don’t feel you can ask questions or go to your REALTOR, you have the wrong person. Your REALTOR should show you research to back up any recommendations. This includes information about recent sales, current listings, and recently expired listings in your neighborhood.
Choose a local REALTOR! When you are selling your Perry Park, Larkspur or Castle Rock Colorado home it is crucial that you choose a realtor who specializes in your area. A local Realtor will know your area better than an outsider. They will be seen as a source for people looking to relocate in your neighborhood, and will get better co-operation from other agents. Many Realtors feel that they can sell real estate anywhere in Colorado, but in fact they are performing a disservice to their clients because they don’t know the unique characteristics of the Perry Park and Larkspur area. In today’s competitive market place it is crucial that your Realtor knows how to sell prospective buyers on your neighborhood as well as your home. It is likely that any amount you might save by having a friend or relative from outside the area serve as your Realtor will be lost in their lack of knowledge about your specific local market. It is also possible that your friend’s inability to sell your home may cause irreparable harm to your friendship.
Don’t forget to ask for local references from the Realtor. He or she should be willing to give you names of previous clients in your neighborhood. Ask your friends and acquaintances for recommendations, but make your final choice based on your needs. Ask the Realtor to show you what will be done to market your home. Consider the initiative and professionalism shown by the individual.
Look for a Realtor who tells you what he or she knows from experience in your local market, and not what they think you want to hear. Flattery may sometimes get the listing, but it doesn’t sell the home!
