When you find yourself in the position of selling a residential property, whether it be a beloved family home or an investment property, finding the right agent to assist in getting the job done is the first and top priority.

Here follow 3 essential tips on choosing the right agent to sell your property in 2019:

1.  Choose an agent most suited to your needs.
It makes sense to jump on board with the agent that has sold the most properties in the area, but this person won’t necessarily be the right fit for your individual needs. As an example, your house might be a unique building with interesting architectural features requiring the expertise from a specific agent passionate about unusual architecture. This agent will have access to a database of equally passionate potential buyers willing to pay more for your property’s uniqueness.

2.  Trust your gut.
When it sounds too good to be true – it probably is. One of the red flags to look out for is a real estate professional who seems eager to sign you up on the spot while offering a lower than average commission fee. Another is when an agent seems indifferent or simulated about the budget of your marketing campaign and the price you want to achieve as opposed to offering confident advice and suggestions. These may indicate that they’re desperate and an agent who is desperate for your business probably isn’t the best agent for the job.

3.  Look at the agency being represented.

The size and credibility of the agency being represented by your agent will give you a good indication of the support your agent will have to his/her disposal to deliver on the promises he/she is making.
