The top Real Estate Agents sell enough properties that they don’t have to worry about lowering their rates. Just like consumer products, such as cars and televisions, the old adage, you get what you pay for, is true when it comes to Estate Agents. When you sign with a cheaper Agent, you may get poorer service because they won’t be able to afford the high-tech advertising and high-quality marketing materials that a top-tier Real Estate Agent would use. Highly-qualified, experienced Agents provide you with the most comprehensive service, which in turn, lures in higher offers from a wider pool of buyers.
The most important thing is to find a reputable Real Estate Agent who you are comfortable with and who will work hard on your behalf to sell your home at the highest possible price. Be more interested in the service they are providing. If an Agent is going to make an extra effort, having inspections several times a week and upping the opportunities for exposure to the market, be happy to pay them what they think they’re worth.
