To be honest, selling a home is a very complicated process, it requires a thorough knowledge of the Real Estate Market in order for sellers to know the exact price for their property. Hiring a Real Estate Agent to sell your home is likely the right thing to do.

Here are the ways to choose the right agent in Calgary that can sell your home fast and hassle free:


1. Set the Price Right


The first factor to consider when selling a house is pricing the house correctly; your agent must pick the absolute right price tag that is based on how much the house is worth. When hiring an agent, sellers must consider an agent's professional qualifications and skills in negotiation and pricing. An agent must have knowledge in the Calgary market area and acquired necessary training in order to pull exact market comparables and provide the desired price value for the house.  


Sellers, on the other hand, must be cautious in choosing the real estate agents they hire to sell their home. Setting the home price too high is not a good idea, because it drives the potential buyers away, but putting it too low is neither a better idea because you do not want to leave money on the table; the best way is to know exactly how much the property is worth.


2. Effective Marketing has its Good Results


Real Estate Marketing is one of the most effective way of showing your property. Visual representation of the property such as interior and exterior photos and virtual tours easily gets potential buyers attention. One of the most effective ways to market your home is to capture the best angles of your property and hiring a professional photographer. It is really useful for home buyers to see the actual features of the property through a video or a virtual tour.


There are multiple avenues to market a client’s property. By effectively using Social Media Marketing sites, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Pinterest and etc. it allows a larger pool of potential buyers to view your property.

3. Proper Communication Is Key


Real Estate Agents and their clients must have an open communication. There are agents who start the relationship with a client, then disappear but then jump back in when there’s an existing offer. We believe an effective agent must inform or update their clients on the status of the property and any related concerns, this will build a strong relationship between the seller and agent.


The biggest complaint from sellers is typically why their homes didn’t sell in the first place, this is the lack of communication with their real estate agents. There is no reason for an agent to cut ties with a previous client when he has another client on the line. A client is still a client and an agent is required to return calls or emails to their client regularly in order for the client to have assurance and can be aware of what their agent is up to.


4. A Buyer Must Be Qualified.


When an agent has scheduled showing for their client’s property. The next step is qualifying the potential buyers. Most home buyers could just easily say they want to buy the house, but are they really qualified to be a pre-approved buyer? The agent must be knowledgeable to see if the buyer fits to be pre-approved to buy the house.


Pre-qualification is different then Pre-approved. Pre-qualification is a determination of a buyer if he/she is qualified for a mortgage within the standards of a lender while Pre-approval is the formal process. The forms must be filled out by the buyer including their income data, bank statements, and some other requirements, then the lender will thoroughly check their application through an internal process.


5. Knowledge of the Terms To Be Negotiated.


In Real Estate, everything is negotiable. An effective agent will never think about themselves but think about their client’s needs. If the agent is qualified for their position,  they won’t hesitate to offer a higher price to their clients because they have the skill to do the job.


If a client intends to change anything in the offer or the property, the agent should negotiate this in a proper manner. A skillful agent is highly trained in this kind of transaction and negotiation because they have the knowledge of the significance of each criteria specific to their clients. Every element is important. An agent must pursue every lead so that their clients know that what you’re doing your best for them.


6. Closing Date Should Be Finalized.


Every detail is important whether it’s big or small. When the closing is drawing near, an agent will take care of the loose ends for their client. Every component of the end process must be taken care of, such as making arrangements for keys, prepossession walkthroughs and final cleaning.


There is no easy way to sell a home, it has to undergo an intense process but hiring the right agent in Calgary to take care of these things for you should put your mind at ease and create a stress-free experience.


Selling a property requires a tremendous amount of effort and preparation. If you are planning to sell your Home in Calgary, let MV Real Estate Group be your bridge to help you sell your home. Give us a call today!
