4 Things Your Seller's Agent Should Do For You

When buying or selling real estate at the Lake of the Ozarks, transactions can become pretty complicated. Having a buyer's or seller's agent can make a world of difference in whether or not your transaction goes smoothly. But not all real estate agents are cut out for both sides of the spectrum. That's why it's so important to make sure you're working with an agent who specializes in your side of the transaction. This week we'll focus on the seller's side and things your seller's agent should do for you when you're selling your house at the Lake of the Ozarks.

4 Things Your Seller's Agent Should Do For You:

1. Help You Get Your Home Ready For The Market
Unfortunately, the home decor you have enjoyed the last few years may not be the same home decor you should use if you want to sell your house quickly. Most homeowners customize their decorations to their own personal styles, but homes for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks should be decorated in very neutral tones. Your Lake of the Ozarks real estate agent will be able to coach you on some staging strategies to help you prepare your home for the market.

2. Guide You Through Pricing Your Home
Pricing your home correctly is a crucial part of the home selling process. If you want your home to sell quickly, you have to get it in the right price range - but most sellers find that this is much easier said than done. If you price your home too high, you risk alienating potential buyers who can't afford your asking price. If you price your home too low, on the other hand, you risk scaring off potential buyers who assume that there must be something wrong with the property in order for it to merit such a price. Your seller's agent will be able to help you find the pricing sweet spot.

3. Aggressively Market Your Property
These days, simply sticking a "for sale" sign in the front yard isn't going to cut it. Your seller's agent should be working hard to get your home in front of as many prospective buyers (and their agents) as possible. In addition to uploading your property information to the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service), your agent should advertise your property on their websites, their social media platforms, and at various networking opportunities. At eXp Realty, we work hard to spread the word about about our clients' listings in every way we can!

4. Act As Sounding Board When Offers Come In
You're not a real estate professional - when you receive an offer on your home, how are you supposed to know if it's a good one or not? Your seller's agent will be able to help you critically evaluate each offer you receive so you can determine whether to accept, decline, or counter. Your agent will be your advocate throughout this entire process as you work together towards the same goal of selling your house quickly - and for as much money as possible!
