Networking With Local Agents

Local real estate agents will no doubt know many of the agents that work in a particular area. This advantage over virtual agents can be priceless, though near impossible to quantify.

Networking benefits a seller in several ways:

  • When an agent prepares and offer for your home, your agents; ability to fall back on past experience with that agent may enable them to offer you the best advice on the style agent you may be working with throughout the escrow period. Some agents have an excellent track record for closing transitions and others, who perhaps push their buyers too hard initially into a sale, have multiple occasions of buyer's remorse and cancelled contracts. Having experience in your local area may be the best attribute your agent can offer. A cancelled contract can cost a seller thousands of dollars-more than paying for any differential in compensation.
  • Having a network of local agents is an excellent way of an agent conferring with other agents on a home's market appeal and pricing by calling upon other local professionals with expertise for feedback.

We meet with 4-5 other agents each month to discuss the "market". It`s informal but, in the same token informative, we`re all experiencing the same problems..
