Oh, don’t worry. I’m not referring to any clandestine realtor activity. I’m talking about all the little things—and not so little things—that she is doing to get the job done while protecting YOU from unnecessary stress.
So what is she up to?
REALTORS LIKE TO PLAN, PLAN, PLAN!
Behind your back, your realtor is doing a pretty great Santa Claus impressions by making lists and checking them twice—or even three times! Whether your realtor is helping prepare your home for the market and preparing marketing plans or scouring the real estate market to and touring available properties to find the perfect home, it takes considerable planning and effort.
FOLLOW UP, FOLLOW UP, FOLLOW UP
Behind your back, your agent is probably on the phone, or sitting at the computer seeking valuable feedback from other agents regarding your property. Is it well-priced? Is the closet a bit unorganized ? Are the buyers considering an offer? Does the marketing strategy need adjustment? Or heaven forbid, does the house have an unpleasant odor?
Swift execution on buyer feedback is vital to keep your home on the top of a buyer’s list!
Behind your back, your realtor is soliciting agents regarding showing an offer, then analyzing every term and contingency to help you land in the best position possible.
She contacts the other realtor and loan agents to ensure that the buyers are truly qualified—and ready—to buy a home. She considers the contingency requests and advises a client that best way to move forward. Your agent will negotiate the best deal for YOU, not the loan officers, not the other party, not themselves. An agent with integrity matters.
