How to Choose a Realtor in Fredericksburg, VA

realtor

 

There are some people that think all Realtors are the same. That would be like saying all Drs or Lawyers or Teachers are all the same. There are good and bad in every profession. So how do you choose and Realtor in Fredericksburg, Va?

Be sure to ask for References. Good agents have Testimonials or Reviews online on such sites as Zillow or Trulia. I also save copies  and have them readily available for future clients to view. Call some of the Agent’s past clients and ask about the transaction, guidance, communication, and negotiating.

Interviewing  your Realtor is very important. Have specific questions ready for them. You are hiring us for a job and you want to make sure we will do a good job for you. Ask how we operate, experience, marketing, etc.

When you are ready to choose a Realtor in Fredericksburg, VA, look for someone  that knows YOUR local market. Hiring someone 45 or 60 miles away just because they are in an area where home prices are higher, will not make your home price higher. In fact, you may end up with an agent that you never see, doesn’t do local marketing for you, doesn’t communicate with local agents, etc. They may not have the lock box that is used in your area and placing one of theirs on your home makes it more difficult for Realtors in your area to show your home. It only takes 1 buyer and if that 1 buyer can’t get in, they will buy something else.

Many Sellers are tempted to choose the Realtor that will List their home at an inflated price. Then their home sits on the market for months and costs them money. Or they miss out on potential buyers if it’s priced just out of their price range. Choose a Realtor in Fredericksburg, VA that is going to work for YOU and be YOUR advocate. Hire someone you have good rapport with and has great negotiating skills and will be with you every step of the way!
