There are several things to consider when it comes to finding the perfect Bristol estate agent. We are going to try and cover as much as we can on this page!
They have good reviews
The wonderful thing about the internet is that it should not be too difficult to find reviews for any company that you want. Just carry out a search online and you will be show both positive and negative reviews. It is important to note that people do tend to leave more negative reviews online than positive reviews. So, do make sure that you think about both the positive and negative reviews. Balance them against one another. This way you can be positive that the company you have selected is going to be good at what they do.
They have experience
The only way in which you can make money in real estate is by having experience. If you are not selling properties, you are not making money. It really is as simple as that! So, if a company has been in the business for several years, you should have a good idea that they know how to do their job!
They deal with your type of property
This should be a major consideration of yours. You need to know that the company you have selected deals with the type of property that you are looking to sell. So, if you are looking to sell a business property, work with a company that knows how to sell businesses etc. We are not just talking about the same ‘type’ of property either. You will want to know that they have experience with property that is the same value as the one that you are selling.
The reason why you need to put a lot of effort into this is because you want a company that understands the market where you are looking to sell your property. This will ensure that they are able to sell the property at the best possible price for you. You do not want a company that is likely to undervalue your property. This will leave money on the table. Of course, you also do not want to select a company that is likely to overvalue it as this will drastically slow down the speed that you sell the property at!
Talk to the Real Estate Agent
Since you will be committing yourself to a contract with the estate agent, you need to talk to them first. A good estate agent is one that is going to be enthusiastic about selling your property. If they really love your property (you will be able to tell if they mean it), then snap them up. That passion is going to really show off to potential buyers. It should make it an easier sell. Remember; you are also going to want to talk to the estate agent to ensure they are marketing your property in the right way.
