Weekly REPORT  JAN. 21 – 27, 2014  

We’re aware of the conventional approach to choosing your listing agent – get 3 opinions and pick the best price. But really, is that wise? You’re about to trust an agent with the sale of your home based on what - the price they quote? Think about it. If an agent knows you’re basing your choice on price, they may just give you a high, but unrealistic price just to secure the listing. There is a better way. Ask to see their marketing plan. Are they skilled negotiators? How about the office – is it successful? Would you rely on their advice in the middle of a negotiation involving 100’s of 1,000’s of dollars? These are much more appropriate criteria upon which to base such an important decision.
