Selling Your Brevard County, Florida Home - Make sure your real estate agent is responsive.

There are lots of expert articles available about how to select a real estate agent to sell your home.

Some of your considerations should include experience, local knowledge, Internet presence, marketing plan...call me if you are looking for a real estate agent to sell your Brevard County, Florida home.

So you already have your Viera, Florida home for sale.  The real estate agent has a sign out front and an entry in the MLS system pictures.  I see six pictures.  (How many pictures should an agent use?)

My buyers have actually already seen your property.   They have a real interest.

The first thing I do before writing an offer is call the listing real estate agent and find out two things - any offers yet and request the seller property disclosure.  Sometimes the property disclosure is attached to the MLS entry.  Yours wasn't.

I called.  No answer.

I emailed. Four days later and still no answer.

In the interim they changed their mind.  I am certain you did not lose a sale in this case.

Still, what if they had been ready to “pull the trigger” and make the offer that day?

There is a lot of work that takes place after the listing agreement is signed.  Being receptive and accommodating to buyer agents is one of the tasks.

Check your real estate agent's responsiveness.  Get a copy of the listing narrative/MLS entry.  Find out how many pictures are allowed vs. how many are being used.  Ask them for reports on activity.

Don't sign a listing agreement and then just wait for an offer.

When you are ready to hire a real estate agent to sell your Brevard County, Florida home, call me.  I will answer the phone or respond to your email.
