Learning More About Real Estate

After finally saving up enough money to use as a down payment, I decided that it was time to hit the market. I met with a lender, got pre-approved for a loan, and then started visiting different properties. However, I quickly realized that I didn't know as much about real estate as I would have hoped. I wanted to find a great neighborhood and know what to ask the professionals, but I could tell that I needed a little help. To point me in the right direction, I started working with a great real estate agent who was familiar with the area. This blog is all about educating the general public on real estate matters.

Ready To List Your Luxury Home In Arizona? What To Know

by Nathan Olson

If you have to list your high end home in Arizona and you want to make sure that you get with the right agent, there are some things you can look for before you list your home. Choosing the right real estate agent can make the difference between selling your home or leaving it stagnate on the market. Here are important factors and characteristics that any agent you choose should have.

Region Familiarity

You need an agent that is familiar with the region where you are trying to sell the property, so they can capitalize and market on all the great area amenities and features when they do advertising for the property. The agent should be able to tell anyone that walks through the house what the school districts are, where the best places are to dine and for entertainment and more. If you live in a high end community the real estate agents name should be familiar amongst the high end homeowners.

Other Luxury Listings

The real estate listing agent needs to have other luxury properties that they are listing or that they have listed. You don't want your property to be the property that an agent tries to break into the market with, and you don't want anyone to make mistakes trying to list it. They should properties similar to yours in quality, price and size.

Popular Marketing Resources

A high end real estate agent that has luxury listings has properties that people want to see, so they have a lot of followers on social media. Any agent you consider using should tell you in advance what different magazines or other media outlets they plan to use, along with the social media account blasts and more. The agent who knows how to market the best is going to attract the most buyers.

The longer your house sits on the market the less desirable it becomes, and the more difficult it will be to see. This means the less money you are going to make on the commission, so you want to make sure you get it right with the best agent possible the first time you decide to list it on the market. If you choose a great agent that has a lot of clientele, the agent may be able to sell the property as a pocket listing right away or to a buyer they already have in mind.
