The Best Oklahoma City Listing Agents
Ready to sell your house in Oklahoma City but don’t have a listing agent picked out? In this day and age, we all “know” a listing agent we can turn to but not maybe not one we would trust selling our house with. Picking the wrong agent can not only cost you lots of money but perhaps worse is the wasted time and energy. The wrong listing agent will fail to properly position and market your house bringing you terrible offers, a low number of showings, and ultimately wasting months of your time. On top of all that, a poor listing agent will cause your house to sell for less.
If the negatives of picking the wrong listing agent are so obvious, why do people still do it? Below are some quick tips on how to avoid picking the wrong Oklahoma City listing agents and how to pick the best.
Why trust us with this information? We are a company that buys houses to remodel and flip them. We’ve been through our share of bad Oklahoma City listing agents trying to sell our houses. We know first-hand the pain.
Tip #1 – Don’t pick someone because they are your friend or family
We see this one a lot. Your cousin or friend’s friend has her real estate license and you think because you are family, you can get a good deal or they will work harder for you. Wrong. Hardly ever works out this way. Selling real estate is business, don’t mix it with the personal. Ask yourself this question, “What would happen to your relationship with your cousin or friend if you had to fire them?”.
Tip #2 – Don’t trust the guy telling you that your house is worth more than what seems reasonable
Two facts here to consider. Listing agents get paid on commission based on the price your home sells for. If your house sells for more, the listing agent gets paid more. That is fact #1. Fact #2 is that listing a house creates business for the listing agent. Buyers come by to see it, the call the listing agent’s phone number on signs and flyers to ask about the house. What does the listing agent do? They turn those buyers into more clients. Combine those facts and it is easy to see that a listing agent might tell you to list your house for more than it could possibly sell for just to get you into a contract. Worst case, the listing agent picks up some buyers from your house. Best case, they make you drop the price 3 or 4 times and get paid.
