Real Estate Sales
Here are JUST 8 reasons why having Tamer Property be your sales agent makes sense:
- Education & Experience
You don’t need to know everything about buying and selling real estate if you hire a real estate professional who does. Henry Ford once said that when you hire people who are smarter than you are, it proves you are smarter than they are. For the most part, they all cost roughly the same. Why not hire a person with more education and experience than you? We’re all looking for more precious time in our lives, and hiring pros gives us that time.
- Agents are Buffers
Agents take the spam out of your property showcases and visits. If you’re a buyer your agent will whip out the sword and keep the builder’s agents at bay, preventing them from biting or nipping at your heels. If you’re a seller, your agent will filter all those phone calls that lead to nowhere and try to induce serious buyers to immediately write an offer.
- Neighborhood Knowledge
Agents either possess intimate knowledge or they know where to find the industry buzz about your neighborhood. They can identify REAL comparable sales and hand these facts to you, in addition to pointing you in the direction where you can find more data on schools, crime or demographics. For example, you may know that a home down the street was on the market for $350,000, but an agent will know it had upgrades and sold at $285,000 after 65 days on the market and after twice falling out of escrow.
- Price Guidance
Contrary to what some people believe, agents do not select prices for sellers or buyers. However, an agent will help to guide to make the right choices for themselves. If a listing is at 7%, for example, an agent has a 7% vested interest in the sale, but the client has a 93% interest. Selling agent will ask buyers to weigh all the data supplied to them and to choose a price. Then based on market supply, demand and the conditions, the agent will devise a negotiation strategy.
- Market Conditions Information
The right selling agent can disclose market conditions, which will govern your selling or buying process. Many factors determine how you will proceed. Data such as the average per square foot of similar homes, median and average sales prices, average days on market and ratios of list-to-sold prices, among other criteria, will have a huge bearing on what you ultimately decide to do.
- Professional Networking
No one in South-East Queensland is more connected than Tamer Property. Our experience, success, and longevity are the living proof!
- Negotiation Skills & Confidentiality
Top producing agents negotiate well because, unlike most buyers and sellers, they can remove themselves from the emotional aspects of the transaction and because they are skilled. It’s part of their job description. Good agents are not messengers, delivering buyer’s offers to sellers and vice versa. They are professionals who are trained to present their client’s case in the best light and agree to hold client information confidential from competing interests.
- Handling Volumes of Paperwork
One-page deposit receipts were prevalent in the early 1970s. Today’s purchase agreements run 10 pages or more. That does not include the federal- and state-mandated disclosures nor disclosures dictated by local custom. Most real estate files average thicknesses from one to three inches of paper. One tiny mistake or omission could land you in court or cost you thousands. In some states, lawyers handle the disclosures, thank goodness!
In the end, the success as a sellers agent is to get you what you want and need out of the sale of your home. We understand the emotional side, economic side, timing sides, and all the variables not even listed. Selling your home has been listed as one of life’s most stressful experiences. OK, but Tamer Property can reduce that stress by almost 90% through its proven sales system. Let us do the work, you focus on the future!
