We have all heard how many people it takes to change a light bulb.
How many does it take to make a sale? Do you know?
This does not have a simple or single answer....not surprising is it.
When your agent sells your hometo a buyer who is not represented then the number goes down. If a buyers agent brings a buyer then the number goes up. If your home is purchase by a relocation company then it changes agent. Here is a list of the people that could be involved in your sale.
- The listing agent.
- The buyers agent.
- The buyers themselves
- You the seller
- Storage companies
- The inspection company
- The lender
- The appraiser
- Survey company
- The title company
- Repair companies, if repairs are required
- The title company closer
This just names a few that will be directly involved, you could have lawn services, painters, roofers and whole other cast of participants in your sale.
So you have to pick your selling agent very carefully, they have to orchestra all kinds of services besides being capable of negotiating your sale to keep the sell price within an acceptable range to you sell and meet your goals without having the seller walk.
So the next time you are asked home many people does it take to make a sale.....say ONE the key one your Listing agent. The expertise of a listing agent can have a huge impact on your sale with the marketing effort to attract buyers and buyers agents and the co-ordination of all the events that follow.
