Got a house to sell? With so many Brampton realtors around how do you decide who to choose? Do you pick a realtor who advertises a lot? Do you keep a discount company? When asked most homeowners said they quality of service they will get and the commission they will have to pay were the most important things to them. Product knowledge the realtor had and they amount of experience in the Brampton area were third and fourth.
Commission varies from agent to agent so be sure to interview a few to get a feel for how the industry works. I’ve been in a Brampton realtor now for about 8 years and have put together a system where I’m able to offer my clients full service and at the same time charge very reasonable commissions. I work at Remax which has about a 35% market share in Brampton. More signs on the lawns means we get more calls coming in from buyers. Your buyer might come from a sign that another realtor had on another property.
MLS is the most important marketing tool you need. Brampton realtors use this database to find properties for their buyers. Brampton realtors don’t look in newspapers, they don’t look at flyers they look on the MLS when they need to find a house for their qualified buyers. A property listed on the MLS can be sold by any agent at any company. All realtors have agree to co-operate with each other when they list a house on the MLS.
But just being on the MLS is not enough. You also need amazing pictures that’ll make your listing stand out. Let’s say 8 properties meet the criteria of the realtor’s buyer and the buyer only wants to see 5 properties that day how does the realtor narrow them down? He’ll quickly glance them and click to see the pictures to see which 4 houses show best. I have professional photographers come in and take pictures of your house. On top of that I also have them put together a virtual tour. With today’s market conditions the supply is higher then demand. There are so many listings on the MLS yours must stand out in some way. That’s why I always put up a virtual tour and 30+ pictures with each of my listings (and this does not cost my clients any extra money). See sample here.
