Choosing the right real estate agent can be pretty difficult if you think about it. Typically speaking not much thought is put into picking the agent you choose to work with. In fact if effort is put forth in choosing the right real estate agent to sell your home, even less effort is put forth in choosing the agent to help you find your new home.
Right now in the major cities of Colorado there are 6,128 homes for sale. On average a person knows at least 3 real estate agents. Now, there are 16,000 real estate agents in Colorado. That means there are roughly 3 real estate agents for every home that’s currently on the market.
The truth is 20% of the agents do 80% of the work. This means that out of 6,128 homes that are for sale 1,226 homes that are being sold by agents that either do not sell real estate full time, don’t do much business or maybe don’t do their sellers and buyers the service they deserve.
What makes the right real estate agent? According to the National Association of Realtors communication is the number one thing buyers and sellers wish their real estate agents did more of. The right real estate agent for you will communicate with you from start to finish; no gray areas.
Here is what the right agent will do:
-The right real estate agent will know the correct price point in which to market your home so you receive the most amount of money in the least amount of time.
-The right agent will explain all of your options, inform you of your best choice, but most importantly they’ll leave the decision up to you
-The right agent has patience, listens to what you want and isn’t pushy.
Every day buyers and sellers choose unqualified agents to help them sell their home and buy their new home. If 20% of the agents are doing 80% of the work then 1,226 buyers and sellers are being represented by agents that aren’t the right agent for the job. They may not communicate enough, market homes well, position their buyers with the most leverage to win or just don’t do enough business to really know the in-and-outs of real estate.
