Buying or selling a home will be one of the most important decisions you make in life. When deciding to list your existing home or search for a new one, Attire Real Estate recommends you always consider the following:
Multiple Listing Service (MLS)
Make sure you choose a real estate office that understands how to effectively utilize the Multiple Listing service to get your home the exposure it deserves. Listing on MLS not only identifies your property to agents and brokers, it also populates your home to the most popular national real estate websites such as Zillow, Trulia, and HotPads among many others. This greatly increases the exposure your home will have in the marketplace, ensuring you get the most qualified buyers at the best price.
Choosing a Real Estate Office
As any serious real estate brokerage will offer you the same basic array of services, your decision to list with a particular office should be based upon at least five criteria: Responsiveness, Professionalism, Industry Knowledge, Technology, and Integrity.
Responsiveness: Is the real estate office available to provide you with advice and answer your questions? Does your agent or broker immediately return your phone calls? Do you feel as though you are a priority for your agent or broker? You should be able to answer 'yes' to all these questions, without hesitation. If you can, the responsiveness of the real estate office is what you're looking for.
Professionalism: Your agent or broker should not only always be courteous, but also professional at all times. It is their job to guide you through the process of buying or selling your home, and you should always feel as though they are providing you with an informed, professional opinion on which you can rely.
Industry Knowledge: In addition to responsiveness and professionalism, is your agent or broker providing you with knowledge you wouldn't be able to obtain through alternative means? One of the major benefits of working with a real estate professional is gaining specific insight into the market that you would otherwise miss without their help.
Technology: In addition to marketing your property on national real estate websites, is your agent or broker aware of current technological trends in the market that could be specifically beneficial to you? It's important that the office you choose is not only focused on what has worked for marketing real estate in the past, but also is taking the necessary steps to adapt for the future.
Integrity: Finally, and most importantly, you must choose an office that holds honesty and integrity in high regard. You should always feel as though your agent or broker has your best interests at heart, and is focused on retaining you as a long-term, valued client.
The principal brokers of the real estate office you choose need to have a combination of practical experience, along with up-to-date knowledge of both the market and industry. At Attire Real Estate, our principal broker has over 15 years of experience, as well as being an accredited Massachusetts real estate instructor.
