Selling or buying a home is generally the biggest financial investment a person makes in their lives. So to make that a good expeirience takes some consideration. That involves the Right person to do your negotiating for you. Consider the following, is your Realtor local. We all want to get the most exposure for our properties, but getting a Realtor from a City 50 miles away is not it. What do they know about the local market, do they have local people who want to live here calling them to ask about properties here. Have they seen the competion, do they attend Realtors tours in your community every week. It makes common sense that you want a local Expert. The next time you are looking ask the questions. Protect yourself and your investment.
