In real estate advice, how to choose a broker, how to save when selling, Sellers

You want to sell your home.  You know it’s going to cost you something to accomplish this and you’re hoping to keep that expense as low as possible.  That’s probably why you’ve come to The Vincent Group and GreatNest.  We specialize in getting the job done while saving home sellers thousands of dollars over what they’d pay an ordinary real estate broker.

But beyond savings, let’s talk a little about what to look for and what to expect when you hire a real estate broker.  I believe that most home sellers are looking for help in four broad areas.

First is advice.  They need an expert to advise them on things like pricing, preparation for selling, staging, evaluation of offers, estimation of net proceeds and so on.

Marketing.  Exposure to the largest number of potential buyers through a broad range of media:  signs, flyers, advertisements, the Internet, open houses, networking and so on.

Expertise - or know-how.  The ability to solve transaction problems as they arise - and they will.  This is so important and it only comes with experience.  The agent who has sold a significant number of properties recently is much better equipped to handle transaction issues than one who has only sold a handful.

Communication - someone who is readily available, who answers your questions and responds to your calls.  Someone who keeps you updated on progress - even if there is none - and who explains the process in a way that ensures your comfort.

At The Vincent Group and GreatNest we exceed expectations in all four of those areas . . . every day.  our track record and remarkable growth are evidence of that as are the numerous client testimonials we receive on a regular basis.

If you’re thinking of selling, you owe it to yourself to find out how we’re able to delight our clients while saving them thousands in  real estate commissions.  All it takes is a phone call to (336) 790-5210.
