Real Estate Agents in Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs Utah

It’s easy to find a real estate agent to help you sell your home. All you really have to do is put out a “for sale by owner” sign and the Realtors will start to call you. However, you may not know exactly who you should choose as you may get many, many calls. Here are a few tips to consider when selecting a real estate agent to represent you in the sale of your home.

First off take a trip around your neighborhood. Look for the signs. Are there any real estate agents who stand out for you? Do any of your neighbors have their home listed? Do you know anyone who has their home listed?

You may also want to look at local advertising. The Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News usually have a real estate section in the Sunday paper. Get one of the newspapers, collect some of the homes magazines and look online for homes advertising. Try to find homes that are similar to yours and in a similar area and look at who has the home listed.

Take notes and write down the names and numbers of all of the listing agents that you find. You will want to find the agents who have listings that are the most similar to your home. Make sure to call the listing agents who are actively working in your area. These are the agents who will have the strongest knowledge of your neighborhood and the homes in your area. These agents will be more likely to advise you well regarding price, condition and attracting potential buyers.

Pricing your home correctly is crucial in any market and hiring the right agent who can give you good advice can mean more money in your pocket. If you under-price your home you stand to lose money but the same is true if you overprice your home. An overpriced home can languish on the market for months and months, making you lose valuable time not to mention the fact that a home that sits on the market for a long time and doesn’t sell is often considered suspect by potential buyers. They wonder just what is wrong with the house that nobody wants it!

Questions to ask your potential real estate agents.

When you are interviewing a real estate agent make sure that you ask all of the questions that you need to. After all, they are actually interviewing for a job that you are hiring them for. If they do not want to talk to you and discuss your situation you may want to consider if that person is really someone you want to work with.
Ask about their experience. Ask them if they have sold homes in your area. You might want to ask them if they work more with buyers or sellers. In real estate the listing agent works for the seller and the buyers agent works for the buyer. This prevents the possibility of a conflict of interest. It is most likely that the buyer of your home will be with another agent who will be working exclusively for them while your listing agent will be working exclusively for you.

Ask about the market. Are homes selling at or near listing price? Are short sales or foreclosures common in your area? What are some of the marketing tools that the agent will use to get your home sold? How long is the average listing staying on the market?

How much do they charge for their commission? How much will they offer for the cooperating buyers agent? Do they ever practice limited agency? Limited agency is when the agent works in a limited manner with both the buyer and the seller. This is something that you will need to feel comfortable with before you allow it. It can be done but the agent will no longer be able to advise you as well as if they were working as just the listing agent. Real estate law can be complex. Ask the of the questions that you need to ask.

When you list your home with a real estate agent in Eagle Mountain or Saratoga Springs you will be working with that person for awhile. Make sure that this person is someone you can easily communicate with and that you are able to get a hold of them or someone from their office almost any time of the day, evening or weekend.
