Choose the right agent for you

You have been thinking and rethinking whether you should put your house on the market and you have now decided that it is the right time for you to sell your Bahamas real estate.

The first thing you should do is contact a local real estate agent to assist you. “Who do I call?” you may ask. Well you need to find an estate agent that you will get along with. Pick an agent that is going to look out for your best interests and not just an agent who wants another listing under their belt.

Opening the telephone directory and randomly choosing a real estate agent is literally the ‘blind’ approach. You need to select an estate agent that will gel with you, an agent that you feel comfortable with and one that you can trust.

The first place you should look for a real estate agent is in your group of contacts; your family, your friends, your business partners, your co-workers, your friends friends etc. If you do not know an estate agent personally, ask your group of contacts; they probably have had dealings with an agent and can point you in the right direction whilst also informing you of agents or company’s not to have any dealings with.

After you have done some research on the agents and their respective companies, and narrowed the list down to about three or four agents, it is time to interview them. Arrange interviews with each agent so that you can find out who the best agent and company is to potentially market your property. As the agents are asking you questions on your home you can ask them questions on their experience, their respective real estate company, and what homes are selling for in your neighbourhood. If the agent is prepared they will be able to give you some information on themselves and their realty company. After each of the agents have left your property you will have a better feel on who they are and who they represent.

The estate agents at RE/MAX Paradise Realty are fully trained and prepared to list your home for sale. We offer information and statistics to help you in choosing us to represent you and your property, but we are not interested in getting a listing just to have it in our database. We are dedicated on listing your home at the right market price.

Listing your home with the right market price will benefit you. Rather than listing your home at an inflated rate and having it sit on the market for months or even years, reduce your asking price to the right market level. This will ensure your home is in front of more eyes which in turn will result in a quicker and more successful transaction.
