Your listing has expired and now you’re wondering what to do. The most important question you must ask is, “Where did I go wrong?”. The answer is not usually within you, but with the agent you entrusted. Be prepared with the right information so you can interview your prospective agent with confidence and assure you make the right choice this time.
Ask For A Record Of The Agent’s Marketing Innovations
How are they dealing with the current delaware real estate market conditions? Is there a plan to beef up their advertising and marketing efforts to benefit the seller? Residential real estate has a long history of economic cycles. The Delaware Real Estate Market is either hot, improving, static or declining and with each cycle there has to be a plan to cope with the current market conditions.
Don’t Stop Asking
Ask for a comparison of last year’s sales to this year’s sales. How is the agent and company doing? Ask for a history of the agent. How many companies have they been with and why did they change? If the reason is always money there may be something wrong. Be careful, because if your agent changes companies your listing belongs to the broker and you may get a new inexperienced agent as your replacement, this could be very costly!
Ask For A Detailed Marketing Plan
Request a step-by-step plan of the first four weeks, eight weeks and twelve weeks your home will be on the market. Make sure your agent is utilizing the latest innovative technologies for generating sales leads. There are now ways to literally generate leads 24 hours a day! These new marketing tools will help sell your home faster and for more money!
Define Planning Times
Establish a time with your agent to go over the marketing results within the first 15 days. Ask for all showings and feedback from other agents. Help the agent understand that any news is good news because it can help you make adjustments in your marketing plan. If you follow these suggestions you’re sure to avoid the mistakes of the past. Make sure you’re dealing with a competent professional, making the right choice is worth thousands of dollars and a great sense of “peace of mind.”
