There are over 13,000 REALTORS® in Greater Vancouver, so when it comes to selling your home, you have a lot of agents to choose from. As with any profession, not all agents provide the same level of service, so when you are choosing one to sell your property, you need one that does their job right.
In most cases, listing agents only get paid once they actually sell your property, so any marketing-related expenses come out of their pocket beforehand. Unfortunately, some agents cut corners by trying to do things themselves, in a bid to save money.
It doesn’t matter whether you are selling in a strong seller’s market, a balanced market, or a buyer’s market—poor marketing hurts your chances of attracting potential buyers and getting the right price for your listing.
When you engage a realtor to list and sell your property, you have the right to expect that they market your property professionally and effectively. Here’s what you should expect from your realtor at a minimum.
