SELLING REAL ESTATE IS NOT A “GAME”
It’s a huge financial transaction

Selling a home is no game. It is a large financial transaction and therefore should be treated as such. Any realtor who believes real estate is a game, isn’t an agent worth hiring as to them it is just that - a game - because they’re not playing with their money – they are playing with yours!

Unless you are among the 1% of the wealthiest people in the world, selling a home is a major financial decision that can either leave you with elongated feelings of richness or leaving you feeling house poor. Ken Carmichael understands that selling a home is no laughing matter and certainly is not to be treated like a friendly game of Texas Hold’em! Hiring the right real estate representative to help you sell your home could be the difference between selling for $350,000 and $450,000. How would $100,000 help you buy your next home?

Full Time Sales Professionals VS Rooky and Seasonal Agents

Would you hire a financial advisor to be in charge of your investments who only works 3 months out of the year? One who is off working in other industries, or laying on the beach somewhere warm? Would you really leave your hard earned money up to a part time financial advisor? One would hope not. When the market is hot and considered a “Sellers Market” you’ll see hundreds of seasonal agents come out of the wood works and numerous of other professionals from other industries jump into the real estate business because of the lucrative sales commission. Be sure to do your homework on these agents, make sure you’re not just given a high listing price on fancy glossy paper just so that they can land the contract of selling your home. Full time sales professionals know that most of these seasonal agents are just around to make a quick and easy buck when the market is hot. Though once the tough gets going, these agents can pressure you to lower your price or to accept a low ball offer, just so that they can close the deal and move on to their next big profitable commission.

Know How to Spot a Top Producing Agent

You may have heard the old saying that 10% of sales people do 90% of the sales? Well that is particularly true in real estate! Just think, 90% of realtors out there are left sharing only 10% of the market – surely there are agents living hand to mouth and desperate for a sale.

Top Producing agents are the exact opposite. If a seller is patient and believes that the right buyer with the right dollars is out there, than a top producing agents job is to hunt them down and lure them in. Remember, realtors are called sales agents for a reason. They’re here to sell and top producing agents do just that!

Ken recommends that every seller interview at least 3 agents before hiring one to help sell their home. For sellers in today’s real estate market exposure is everything and that doesn’t just mean sticking your listing on MLS and waiting on a hope and a prayer. Market exposure means getting your property in front of as many buyers as possible including real estate websites, social media mediums, newspapers, magazines and other print media and any other (valuable) marketing avenue.

Top producing agents have a proven marketing strategy and usually a unique strategy based on the sellers goals. Ken has worked with many sellers with different goals and unique situations. With over 25 successful years in the business, you can be sure that Ken has a proven marketing strategy that will work wonders for you!
