HOW OUR DYNAMIC LISTING AGENTS CAN HELP YOU SELL YOUR HOME

After you determine an asking price, our listing agents should provide you with a comprehensive marketing plan detailing how we will get your property sold. This plan should include the following:

  • Recommendations for home improvements or home staging, if necessary. Yes, these alterations will cost you time and money, but they will improve your chances of a faster sale and higher asking price.
  • Taking photos or hiring a photographer who will be able to highlight your home's best features.
  • Adding your home to the multiple listing service, where home buyers and their agents can view your property and decide if they'd like to come visit for a closer look.
  • Advertising and holding private showings and open houses
  • Coordinating showings with prospective buyers and brokers.
  • Mass media advertising and alternatives to purchasing through a magnificent lease to purchase program. The seller is paid like a normal sale and the investors becomes the owner/landlord.

HOW LISTINGS AGENTS NEGOTIATE WITH BUYERS

Once you get an offer on your home, it's our job to present it to you and advise if any haggling needs to be done. For instance, if you get an offer way below asking price, your knee-jerk reaction may be to refuse in a huff. Don't fret, we might be able to negotiate with the buyers and bring that price up to a decent level—or, if the buyers truly can't budge much, find other ways to sweeten the deal like a quicker closing date or waived contingencies. These compromises can actually save you tens of thousands of dollars.

HOW TO CHOOSE A LISTING AGENT

If you're looking for a listing agent,  Dynamic Realty Advisors are available to assist you. When choosing an agent ask them some questions to assess whether they're right for you. Most agents pretty much work the same way, however, there are some that will make a promise and not deliver. No one can guarantee the sell of your home but we all strive toward the same goal so its a win-win for everyone!

Here are some questions to ask a prospective listing agent:

  • How many homes have you sold in this area, and how long did it take?
  • In what price range do you sell most of your homes?
  • Do you have advice for me about the condition of my home, and what could be improved to glean a higher sales price?
  • What is your marketing plan?
  • Can you recommend contractors, photographers, moving companies, etc.?
  • Are you a member of the National Association of Realtors®? (Realtors must abide by the group's code of ethics.)
  • Is this your full-time job? (A part-time agent is not a problem, but you will want to gauge her availability during off-hours.)
  • How often will you touch base with me?
  • Are you planning any vacations, and if so, who will back you up?

HOW MUCH LISTING AGENTS GET PAID

Listing agents don't receive a dime unless your home gets sold. If it does, the typical agent commission is 6% of the price of your home (which is typically split between the listing agent and the buyer's agent). This price may seem substantial, but consider this: For every hour an agent spends with you, he will spend an average of nine hours behind the scenes working on your behalf. In other words, listings agents work hard to earn that commission and get your home sold.
