The Art of Maintaining a Good Client Agent Relationship

The Art of Maintaining a Good Client-Agent Relationship

Is your relationship with your estate agent getting frosty? Is it becoming harder and harder to communicate with them? If so, then it may not be the arrangement you initially expected. But, it doesn’t have to be that way; there are steps you can take to stop things going down such a negative path. The following looks at what you can do to maintain the quality of your client/agent relationship.

Trust

When it comes to real estate, odds are there is a fair amount of money riding on the outcome of the transaction. This means you need to trust your estate agent to act when necessary. This trust also needs to run both ways, as they need to trust you to make important decisions and commitments. In a client-agent relationship trust must go both ways.

RespectfulThe Art of Maintaing a Good Client-Agent Relationship (1)

You may want your property sold or bought sooner rather than later, but you must understand that it will never be quite as simple as that. The world of real estate is tough to navigate and you must be respectful of the fact that at times things may not move as quickly as you would like. Be respectful of your agent, and as long as they are moving forward, then remain positive. The same goes for them towards you, do things on your own time and the agent should always be respectful. They should never force you into a decision you don’t feel comfortable with,

Controlling

The best agents in the field will always be open to suggestions, however you must be aware that you can’t control everything on your own. An agent will know the field best and you should trust them to an extent to lead the way. Everything from advertising to viewings should be handled by the agent and not you personally. Remember, the worst thing can do is smother the buying or selling process.

Talk

In this day an age the realms of communication have become largely text based, this can be helpful when it comes to relaying quick messages. However, it pays dividends to have phone or face-to-face conversations with your agent, to get a full breakdown on what’s happening. Next time you want to speak to your agent, try and cut down on the emails, pick up the phone or pop into the office and see them.

Be Prepared to Pay

Estate agents work off commissions; it is what motivates them 90% of the time. There have been many stories of clients trying to renegotiate commission rates when already in a contract, or try and stiff an agent during the completion phase. Don’t be one of these people; choosing to renege on an agreed commission can open up a whole host of issues. It can leave your agent feeling disinterested, cause a break of contract, or worst of all leave you facing legal action.

Honesty

When it comes to buying or selling property, honesty is always the best policy. Give your estate agent each and every parameter you’re looking from day one, and if selling don’t hide anything. If your property has problems don’t try and hide it. Doing such will only lead to problems later down the line, so if you are already guilty of this do your best to come clean sooner rather than later.

Punctuality

Last but no means least, always try and keep appointments and be punctual. For both you and your agent time maybe precious, so keep on top of things whenever possible. Above all else never be a no-show, it may just lead to the end of the client-agent relationship for good.

Real Estate Quick Sale Tips

Real Estate Quick Sale Tips

Today’s real estate market in North Carolina and the rest of the country often seems to have more supply than demand, which means sellers must look for ways to make it. There are ways to improve the odds of a sale, so if you look for ways to sell as quick as possible, then you will need to work on both the property and the way you approach the marketing process. The following tips will give you a hand in this matter:

  • YoReal Estate Quick Sale Tips (1)u must make sure the property stands out from the rest of the neighborhood without looking far too eccentric. Landscaping, custom designs, roofing and window replacements can do a lot of good to the aesthetics of a home, adding much value as you finish them. You can make other, more practical improvements overall if you want to reach the widest range of clients on the market, as long as it complements the overall style of your home and you don’t have to go through a total overhaul.
  • Even though improving your property can help with the sale, you should still keep things within reasonable limits. Do some research and figure out what you would do well to invest in, since your market may be quite different from other locations around the country. If you’re not sure what improvements would benefit you, then you need to get some professional help from a real estate agent who would know the details of the current market. Whenever you put your property on the market, you should make sure you include information on all the improvements you’ve made to help promote the sale.
  • Work on cleaning all clutter away from the property long before you consider showing it to potential clients. This may include removing some if not all the furniture inside the property, depending on your approach to selling it. No furniture means making the place seem larger in comparison to how it was before, but it may also get in the way of the sale if the buyers don’t want the furniture as part of the deal. If you do plan on selling with the furniture still inside, you should focus on staging things or even hiring a professional stager if you think you don’t have what it takes to make it look good. Staging may cost you, but in the end you will have a much better chance to sell if you handle it well. If this property happens to be a place you were living in, then you may consider simply moving the furniture to temporary storage for the time being.
  • You can make your deals more attractive if you add something on to them, such as making them more lucrative. Give the buyers some credit toward the closing costs, leave some of the appliances behind and you will have a much better chance to sell.
