I’m sure you have noticed that it seems like everyone has their real estate license. Your old friend from college, your hair dresser, your cousin, your sister’s new boyfriend, your best friend, they all seem to have their real estate license! The pressure to choose between all these people in your life can be very stressful and put pressure on your relationships. Many friends and family feel it is their right to sell your house because of your relationship with them. But is this how you would choose your doctor or your financial planner? Would you choose someone to perform surgery on you because he is dating your sister? Absolutely not! You would do your homework and make sure that this person is qualified to do your surgery. Would you entrust your cousin with your financial planning just because she has 3 clients and needs more business? Absolutely not! You would want to see past results and make sure that your cousin has a great track record with planning out other people’s finances before you would turn over your hard earned money to her. So why would you turn over the sale of one of your biggest investments to someone just because you are friends with them or related to them? Now don’t get me wrong, if they are the most qualified person for the job then it makes great sense. But if they have just started in the business and only have a few sales under their belt, it would not make sense to entrust them with your biggest asset. Experience selling homes is a must in this business. Sure, anyone can throw the listing into the MLS and set up appointments for people to see the home. But can an inexperienced agent really know the best ways to get you the most money for your home? Will they know the best ways to negotiate the least amount of repairs that you need to pay for? Will they know how to work with appraisers to get you the best possible appraisal? Will they know what to do if the appraisal comes in low? Most likely an inexperienced agent has not had to deal with all of these pressures and does not have the creativity or the negotiation skills to get you the best possible outcome. It is through experience that a seasoned agent can get you the most for your home. Years of experience are not the only criteria you should look at when choosing your agent. You alsoneed to look at their experience within the given area that your home resides. If an agent is highly experienced in Miami-Dade, then they are not going to be the best person for a home sale in Miramar. People often think that if you are good at selling in one location, then you will be good anywhere. It just doesn’t work this way. If an agent doesn’t know the area that you are selling in, how will they market the home? How will the agent answer questions for buyers and agents to put the house in the best light? The process of selling a home is quite different from location to location. In some areas the seller typically pays for title insurance, where as in Miramar they do not. If you hire an agent from outside of the area, they most likely will not know this standard and you will end up paying thousands of dollars more than you should have. I know that we all want to help our friends and family, but at the end of the day we must look out for our financial well being and take care of our most expensive investments, our homes.
