Choosing the right real estate agent on Alabama’s Lake Martin is a decision that requires careful consideration, research and even gut instincts. You should feel confident that your agent has your best interests in mind, but many home sellers often ask exactly how much they need to trust them.
Trustworthiness is key to a successful real estate transaction in Tallapoosa, Elmore, and Coosa County, to name a few. So as you set out to choose a real estate agent, contemplate if you trust them enough to accomplish the following:
Sell the biggest asset you have
For most families on Lake Martin, their home is the largest asset they own. Many times the equity they have in the property is also the largest percentage of their wealth. Ask yourself if you trust your agent enough to negotiate the sale of an asset with this much importance.
Find the right price
In our last blog post, we outlined the value of pricing your home from the beginning. The right real estate agent will suggest a price point that drives competition and interest, not one that places it outside of buyer affordability.
Agree with your schedule
Selling your home in Alabama typically comes with a timeline attached. Do you know when you’d like to be out of your current home and into the next? Your real estate agent should be trusted to coordinate the home selling process to match a certain schedule.
Negotiate on your behalf
Real estate transactions involve many different parties and different negotiations. For sellers, one such negotiation is agreeing on the best price and terms with the buyers. Lake Martin homeowners should feel at ease with their agent handling these exchanges.
You can count on me to walk you through every step of the process and answer any questions you have along the way. I stake my reputation on each transaction and make it my priority to pursue what is best for each person. That is something you cannot always count on with the average agent!
I look forward to hearing from you!
