You’ve decided that now is the perfect time to sell your West Los Angeles luxury home. The only thing standing in the way of getting started now revolves around fear of the unknown, the qualifications of area real estate agents… and how to choose an agent who can get your home sold quickly.
If you’re going to entrust the sale of your luxury home to a West Los Angeles real estate agent, it is crucial that you are confident in your agent’s ability to market and sell your home at a price and terms that are favorable to you.
Here are some things to consider before listing your West Los Angeles home:
Experience is an incredible teacher, especially for real estate agents. Challenges will need to be overcome; the best way of knowing how to overcome challenges is to have seen similar situations before. MrWestside’s has a long history of successfully overcoming challenges and offering rock solid guidance to clients. Has your real estate agent learned how to overcome challenges? Or are they hoping to use selling your West Los Angeles home as the first notch on their sales belt? Demand experience. This is crucial.
A common tactic used by some real estate agents is to promise high listing prices that the agent knows are impractical (or even impossible). A competent West Los Angeles real estate agent will price homes honestly based on real valuations. An honest listing strategy is evident when a home sells for something close to listing price. Does your real estate agent consistently sell homes for full listing price, and in some cases, even more?
Will your real estate agent actively market your home? Or will they list it, then forget about it? Marketing plays a crucial role in the sale of a home, especially in the highly competitive West Los Angeles luxury real estate market. MrWestside uses effective online and offline real estate marketing strategies based on what’s working in today’s market, not what worked 20 years ago… or has worked only in theory.
A sometimes unseemly reality of selling homes in any market, including West Los Angeles, is that some real estate agents will put their need for a commission before their client’s best interests. Not only is this unethical, it can in some instances be illegal. MrWestside will always put your best interests first. Doing the right thing is always the best thing to do – and is nearly always the most profitable option for everyone.
It is easy for a real estate agent to talk about what makes them so great. What really matters is what past clients say about their real estate agent. An effective real estate agent with a proven track record will have plenty of positive reviews. The agent will not be worried about you checking them out and reading what others have to say about the experience. MrWestside has many glowing online reviews.
