Selecting a REALTOR in Louisville KY...Who to Call?
So you're exploring the possibility of placing your home on the market and have dreams of moving on to that next special place to call home. Lucky for sellers today, you have access to website after website offering tips and advice to help homeowners prepare their homes for the upcoming listing period. The one preparation that will advance you toward your goals is the careful and methodical selection of your Louisville REALTOR®.
In this series I hope to assist you through the process of selecting a true professional to see through the successful sale of your home. Through this process you can command the timely sale for your home while realizing the maximum potential from your real property asset.
Weeding Through the Solicitations
If you previous had your home for sale on the market and either had your listing expire or you intentionally took it off the market, you've likely received a flood of letters, postcards, phone calls and even visits to your home. Every real estate agent seems to have a similar message, making the same claims of success and suggests a similar approach to ‘get your home sold this time'. It's hard to filter through all of these claims and choose that one professional that will bring you together with the goals you wish to obtain.
Listing Your Home for the First Time?
If placing your home on the market for its first time, you'll want to do your homework to ensure you make the decision most supportive of your goals. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when selecting a REALTOR® is they only speak with one agent and move forward from there. With nearly four thousand REALTORS® in Louisville, you will experience varying styles and approaches to the home selling process. Select the approach that is most comfortable for you. If you were building an addition to your home, you'd likely interview three separate contractors...I suggest the same approach to selecting a REALTOR® in Louisville.
False Hope and Empty Promises
Another mistake to avoid...be cautious of ‘rainbows and lollipops'! I'm a rather optimistic person and choose to see the best in every situation; however I'm also a very realistic person and stay grounded with facts! Our reality in Louisville's real estate market is much more positive than the national average, however it holds its challenges and you will face tough decisions at some point in the process. You should align yourself with a professional who demonstrates a realistic approach to selling your home. Align with a REALTOR® who not only acknowledges the challenges ahead, but also provides solutions to most effectively overcome those challenges.
