Researching Real Estate Agents
Finding a real estate agent in Colorado is easy, however, finding the right agent to help you sell your home can be a different story. Any agent can place a sign in your yard, list your home for sale on MLS, and create flyers of your home, just as any restaurant can make a hamburger. However, there is a reason why some restaurants can easily sell a hamburger for $15 and others struggle to sell a hamburger for $3.
To begin you need to create a list of potential real estate agents to help you market your home for sale. Real estate is all about location, location, location so, when creating your list of potential candidates you want to make sure they understand and our visible within your community. Where can you look?
- Search online for, "Homes For Sale in Community Name" or "Homes For Sale in City Name" and make a note of the top local real estate agents. 95% of home buyer's search homes for sale online.
- Do you receive any marketing materials from local real estate agents? About 20% of homes are sold to buyer's that have a family or friend in the neighborhood.
- Ask for referrals from neighbors or family and friends that live close. Remember real estate is about location, so a great agent that lives across town may not be your best option.
