The selling process generally begins with a determination of a reasonable asking price. Your Real Estate agent can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle.
Marketing: The next step is a marketing plan. Often, your agent can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of the property. Marketing includes the exposure of your property to other Real Estate agents and the public. In many markets across the country, over 50% of Real Estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a Real Estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. Your agent acts as the marketing coordinator, disbursing information about your property to other Real Estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service or other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for agents, etc.
