Do you realize how life changing your choice to sell your home is? You are embarking on an amazing journey that could impact the rest of your life. So why would you want to pick a random Billings Mt Realtor? I know you’re like me and want to only work with the best realtor Billings MT has to offer. Choosing the right realtor can make for a smooth ride. The wrong realtor can leave you with months of stressful days and restless nights.
So the question you are asking right now is how do I choose a good realtor? The first way to find a good realtor is to ask your friends, neighbors and business associates who they would recommend. Even post a comment on facebook if you have a facebook. Everyone loves to give their opinion. When you ask these people for recommendation bug the heck out of them with questions. Ask them why they liked the realtor, what services he provided, and what their experience working with him/her was like. This is a great way to start forming a list of realtors, but you’re not done quite yet.
The next step is to do a little research on the list of Billings MT Realtors that you have made up. Take the list and Google them. Find out who they are, who they work for, what kind of marketing they do, their internet presence, and pretty much stalk them on the internet. It’s also important to find a realtor who has an online presence. 86% of home buyers start their search online.
Here is a great tip and but can be a challenge. Find out which realtor’s in Billings Montana is closing the most transactions. The reason for this is you will know which realtors are the hustlers. The top five or ten realtors you know have figured out the game and know how to sell a house. They are making it happen and they are the people you want to be working with.
Ok so you have your list, you have done your research and found out who looks like good realtors and so on. Now you’re going to want to narrow your list down to about 3 realtors. It’s up to you how you do this. I just recommend going with who you think looks like the very best.
Once you have your list narrowed down call all three of them and set up an appointment to meet them at your home. The reason to meet them at your home is so they can take a good look at is and give you their opinion. Also have them do a CMA (comparative market analysis) on your house. This is just what similar houses are selling for in your area and will give you a good feel for what your house is worth.
When you interview them really take note of their personality and how you feel about them. Also have a long list of questions to ask them. Here are some example questions to ask.
- How do you plan to get my house sold?
- What is your Marketing Plan for My House or Houses you have sold?
- How many years have you been a licensed realtor in this state?
- Are you full Time?
- How to you market online?
- How many transactions did you do last year?
- How many Listing do you have?
- What other services do you provide? Home staging?
- Do you belong to the MLS? (very important)
There are just a few examples to ask them. After you have interview them do not make a decision right away. I know a lot of realtors who will want you to sign the listing papers right away but take a few days and evaluate them. Go through the pros and cons of each.
In the end it all comes down to choosing the one you feel will do the best job. Always go with your gut feeling. After you have made your choice trust your decision and you will be fine.
Choosing a pour realtor in Billings Mt can turn an already stressful experience into a high speed car wreck. But if you have done your home work you will choose the right realtor and he/she will make your life more amazing than it already is. Start your Home Selling Journey today.
