What are the key characteristics, skills, and traits of a top seller agent:

  • Finding a good sellers agent before the shortage of homes for sale, was less difficult than it is now
  • An agent MUST be able to create multiple bids on your house, this bidding war brings added dollars for you, the seller.
  • Good sellers agent experienced in conducting bidding wars
  • Someone with negotiating skills and has a marketing plan that is made to get multiple bids at the same time
  • The ability to listen with care for the consumers is one of the top traits a top seller agent needs to possess
  • Not all agents have the experience and skills that it take to set up the bidding war
  • The BIGGEST MISTAKE people make is when they accept the first offer they get at the price that they asked for when they can wait until you get more offers to get the most value of your home

Top seller agent

Stay skeptical all the time until you have interviewed enough agents and you see that the agent care about you and he or she has the negotiating and marketing skills that will get the job done the way you want it done as a seller – Barry Miller (Host, and real estate agent with Remax Masters Millennium, Denver, CO)

Tips and suggested questions for consumers when interviewing a top seller agent

  • Ask them to show you the data that they have brought with them that day that tells them what the asking price of your home should be
  • What the likely market appraised price value of the home is today
  • What the most likely selling price will be after they provide you with their bidding war marketing plan
  • Most real estate agents don’t have an idea how 
  • Don’t fall for the trap that the agent has to see your home before they do a  thorough market analysis for you

  • However, a good reverse mortgage lender needs to understand the seniors
  • Needs to be knowledgeable about the senior space 
  • The only difference between a reverse mortgage and a conventional mortgage is how you pay it back
