Pricing Waterfront and Water View Wickford RI homes - Lessons Learned - Part II.  If you missed Part I of my blog on pricing waterfront and water view Wickford RI Homes, please click here to read

Are you investing in the real estate mythology of 'Realty Company' names as if the company's name makes a home sell?  It is the Wickford RI realtor who makes or breaks the successful sale of your waterfront Wickford RI home! Don't be sold out by a real estate company which tells you what you want to hear on PRICE so that they obtain the listing - and then works on you every week to reduce it.  Scrutinize the marketing strategy of tWickford RI - Cove & Waterfronthe realtors courting your listing.  What is the their internet strategy? 90% of all buyers search on the internet to buy - if your home does not have a strong internet presence there, it is less likely to have the buyer traffic needed to sell your waterfront or water view Wickford RI home!

Ask these questions of prospective Realtors you are interviewing:

 -Do they assign a showing agent or agents to show the house but like 'only their' name on every 'for sale' sign for their company...yet they never show up to show your house to the prospective client?

- Do they blog, post on a myriad of well founded web sites, feature listings on their web sites, do slideshows, virtual tours, videos, google address your home - all to have your property found by prospective buyers?  These are some of the questions to ask.  In addition, check out a current property they have on the market by GOOGLing the property address and see how they are actually marketing the current active listing - it should give you an indication of how your Wickford RI home will be marketed.

- Has the realtor given you a 'punch list' of required to do's before the house goes on the market and staging essentials to assure your home has the 'attraction' for buyers.

Hi Ginny,

I have been at homes for a inspection or a showing doing a "four point". The "Realtor" on the sign out in the yard was not the agent showing the home. It was another agent from the same agency.

What's up with that?. If your name is on the sign, then you should show the home. It's as simple as that.

Ginny, it should never be about the popularity or size of the Company listing the property, but about the single agent's abilities to effectively market and get the home exposure. Many agents can take a listing with a well rehearsed presentation, but the home will languish on the market raising other thoughts about the home. If a seller is interested in selling their Wickford RI home and want an agent to get it sold, then Ginny Gorman is the person to call.

Clint, sometimes somthing comes up for a realtor but here unless they are 'an uncaring' realtor, they do show up at the inspection.  If I were the seller I would be extremely upset if my realtor wasn't there!

Ed, it is how it is marketed well but it's amazing how sellers get caught up & believe the hype of some agents...i have recently had sellers listed with OTHER agents call me for advice because they were upset with their Wickford RI realtors but they don't have it in them to fire them! what is that about?  thanks

All valid questions that every prospective seller should ask.  Just because the Realtor works at company X or is a long-time family friend doesn't mean they will be able get your home sold.  In Wickford RI and surrounding areas, Ginny Gorman IS the Realtor you need to call to list and sell your home!

Ginny, it is NOT about what the company can do for you --- it IS the agent that does all the work.     Not all great agents work for large national companies!

You really do give your Waterfront and Waterview Wickford home sellers great information about pricing their homes, and what you do to market them.  Pricing is an art, and needs to be done carefully.  You know your market.
