Many people find the idea of selling their home on their own enticing. The belief is that they will save money by not hiring an agent. While this can be true (though typically not), there are many other factors to consider when it comes to selling your home. Whether it is the various stages of negotiations, legal ramifications, marketing challenges, or simply the ups and down of the process -- having a professional on your side who is committed to your best interest in vital. That is where the Harvey Realty Group comes in!
Having a full-time agent with a solid understanding of the local area and multiple marketing strategies is non-negotiable. Additionally, you want to work with a professional who has recently sold many similar properties.
Real Estate is a fast moving business and requires your agent to be available when decisions need to be made. Does your broker have clear channels of communication? Do they embrace technology (i.e. text, social media, email, etc.)? Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to reach your representation!
Is your broker well-respected in the community? Are they someone you would want your name associated with? While it is business, it's a people business. You want someone that other brokers and potential buyers enjoy working with.
Does your agent actually care about your goals and concerns? Do they take the time to listen to why you are selling and what your plans are for afterward? Can you trust that they genuinely have your best interests in mind throughout the process? Good agents are competitive and proven negotiators, but great agents are also compassionate.
