Avoid These 3 Biggest Mistakes When You Hire a Realtor in Delray Beach

One way to make selling your Delray Beach home easier is to know how to hire a realtor that’s an expert.

The best way to find the right realtor for you is through interviewing. Deciding upfront what questions to ask and what information you need to be comfortable is paramount.

Without doing so, you could be caught in the Blind Archery Home Selling which can affect your bottom line. To avoid this trap, we’ve created this list of 3 biggest mistakes homeowners make when interviewing realtors:

  1. Not relying on logic
  2. Not knowing your selection factors
  3. Not investigating the realtor’s track record

Follow along as we take a closer look at each mistake and tell you how you can avoid it. 

1. Not Relying on Logic

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when interviewing a realtor is to rely on emotion, rather than logic, to make your decision. The realtor you “like” might not be the realtor you need.

Avoid picking a realtor based on:

  • Personality
  • Appearance
  • Charm
  • A “feeling”

It’s important to remember that feelings are not facts. When it comes to your most valuable asset, you want concrete facts and figures to base your decision on. 

2. Not Knowing Your Selection Factors to Hire a Realtor

You won’t know when you find the right agent if you don’t know what “right” is to you. Instead of floundering and guessing, try making a list of the 5 most important traits that you are looking for. Get some ideas with our free real estate agent selection guide that includes 9 different selection factors. 

3. Not Investigating the Realtor’s Track Record

When you have hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line, you want to be able to put your faith and trust in your realtor. The only way you can do that is by being satisfied with their previous track record. 

To see if their track record is up to snuff, look for these signs:

  • They sell more homes than other realtors
  • Their homes sell for more money
  • The agent has a team of professionals, instead of working alone
  • They have positive reviews by satisfied clients

Run in the other direction if you discover that the realtor’s homes don’t sell, sell for less than other realtors, took a long time to sell or sold homes for much less than what they were worth. These are signs that the realtor you are interviewing doesn’t have the past experience to make your sale a winner.
