You might already know the smartest way to sell your home is through a real estate professional, but you may not realize how much your real estate associate really does for you. A real estate agent is licensed and regulated by the state to sell real estate, but service levels are far from standard. Having an agent’s professional advice and services assists you in the selling process of your home — from pricing your home to preparing your home for market, to finding the right buyer and to guiding the transaction to a smooth closing.
• A Shorewest real estate agent will help you prepare your home for sale, which is especially important in today’s competitive marketplace. They will offer staging, professional home photos, cleaning and repair suggestions, as well as help you understand what buyers are looking for in today’s market.
• A Shorewest real estate agent will market your home on MLS (Multiple Listing Service), third-party sites and on signs, flyers, social media and other networking sites. But don’t be surprised if your first showings come from your agent’s community of contacts such as previous clients, current buyers, and other personal and professional contacts. The Shorewest network includes over 1,000 agents in 21 offices across Southeastern Wisconsin.
• A Shorewest real estate agent knows how complicated closings can be. Your home can fail to meet the buyer’s appraisal price, or the buyer’s inspection may reveal a water leak. Your agent knows how to react defensively and can help you solve any problem that comes up. Your agent also takes preventative and curative measures to keep lenders, closing agents, contractors and you on task during the home sale.
• A Shorewest real estate agent’s job isn’t finished when you turn over the keys. They can help you find and buy your next home, providing the same level of service to you when you become the buyer. Your agent can alert you to good housing investments, second homes or homes for your children.
For Shorewest real estate agents, professionalism is about building a relationship that lasts a lifetime, from helping you buy your first home, to helping you sell your home and move up, to downsizing if you become an empty nester or are ready for a simpler lifestyle.
