BLOG 2012 – Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe, Catch an Agent….. (Part 1of 4)

As a child when it came time to make decisions we often left it up to chance. What do you do when it’s time to make life’s most important decisions now? Do you extend your index finger and recite the rhyme you did when you were a kid. Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe….. Yeah, that would be silly, but you would be surprised how often this happens when it is time to choose a Real Estate Agent.

When working with a Real Estate Agent, many Sellers work with the first person who answers the phone. They do not take into account that ALL AGENTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL!

When it comes to a major decision like selling your home you should not leave it up to chance who you select as your Real Estate Agent. There is too much at stake. While the titles appear to be the same the qualifications and customer service are definitely not.

Consider this!

Your hard earned equity is on the line. Choosing the wrong agent could mean, watching that equity go down the toilet in a series of bad decisions.

You could end up giving most of your equity to buyers out of desperation.

You could end up paying a mortgage on an empty home if you have a deadline to move to your next location.

You could be forced to rent your home, due to the financial strain of multiple mortgages.

You could lose your home to foreclosure for inability to find a renter or maintain multiple mortgages.

Don’t let this happen to you. Let me help you get to the closing table. Get sound advice and assistance with pricing, staging, showcasing, and most importantly "Maximum Exposure" to the public.

 

Don't leave it up to chance!

Hi Tracey, I love your photo that you chosed to get your point across about choosing the right Real Estate agent. It sort of reminds me about something that Forest Gump said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are going to get". The same could be true with selecting a real estate agent. Consumers need to interview and find the right person to assist them for their needs.

Welcome to Active Rain! Thanks for your service to our country. Best Wishes for a successful 2012!

Interviewing your agent can save you TIME and MONEY. Knowledge of the Market is so important. Using the assistance of a FULL TIME agent such as Tracey is of utmost importance.

Tracey, selling and buying property should never be left to chance, as we are NOT all equal!
