Many Sellers that have an appraisal conducted on their home have questions about the listing and appraisal process.
And fair enough!!! I would too.

After doing this for a long time we have found that the most commonly asked question consist of the same 6-10 questions each time, so to make it easier for you we would answer the most typical ones here. I hope they are informative and useful. Here they are:
A. Usually we ask for a 100 day listing authority.
Remember, with me you have an automatic “out” if I don’t deliver on my promises
No one that I am aware of in this area has a guarantee anything near that for absolute peace of mind, in writing.
As at time of writing, I am the only local agent that I am aware of that offers a Full Risk Reversal guarantee in writing. You will receive it at the time of listing. A full service guarantee and a “you can sack me” clause absolutely guaranteeing that I cannot take you for granted.
I ONLY WANT TO WORK WITH Clients that want me to continue work with them. This has always been my values and practice.
A. It is not recommended to do this!!! The theory may be that it creates competition. The opposite usually occurs.
A. I will always happily discuss selling fees. I am normally NOT the cheapest cost Agent. The real question is to VALUE.
A great agent will sell for more and fight hard to maximise your nett after sales commission price. A great agent is cheaper by the value they provide in influencing the outcome, thereby maximising value. We will always be competitive, and make sure fees is not the reason you choose or do not choose me. I want your business, but your home is too valuable to risk a cheap agent.
A. You can!!!
We want to avoid the risk of you missing the market by starting optimistically and then having the problem of being overpriced and looking stale. Let me discuss this with you in detail. My strategy is always about trying a little higher, and we do this early. We must and always try to find you the premium buyer who will pay the most, and this is almost early the early buyer (Heart buyer).
A. Usually, the seller pays to market their own property.
A. Me! (I will be your agent).
I will be your listing representative and handling the sale with the assistance of an effective and competent team.
Thank you for the opportunity to explain the above points. Please feel free to discuss these or any other questions you may have.
