Wondering How to Pick Your Agent?
Only 3 and a bit weeks to go until Christmas! I simply cannot believe how quickly it has come around. Is anyone else feeling the same?
At this time of year most people are focused on things other than property right now but for those of you thinking about moving in the New Year you may be wondering on how to pick your agent, a favourite topic of mine and one with an easy answer, call me! Having said that If you are about to sell your home, you have probably already asked other recent sellers which agent they would recommend and may have invited two or three agents to come and suggest a price and a marketing strategy for your home. It may even be clear to you which agent stands out as the obvious choice. But for those who can’t decide there is a fairly simple way to finalise their choice.
Many professional agents are so ready to stand behind their services that they offer vendors the option of cancelling the original agency agreement if they have a problem with the way the agent is handling the marketing. This offer is called a Service or Performance Guarantee. It doesn’t mean a vendor can decide to cancel the agency agreement just because they don’t like the colour of the agent’s car or the suit they’re wearing!
The offer usually involves the vendor giving the agent time to remedy any problem they might have and at the end of that time if the vendor is still unsatisfied, the agent will release the vendor from the agreement.
The vendor is then free to sell their house with someone else without waiting out the period of the agency agreement.
