The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board is home to north of 70,000 real estate agents – more than any other Real Estate Board in North America. While this volume of industry professionals provides sellers with a myriad of options for whom they can work with, the degree of expertise, experience, and result-optimizing listing strategies varies widely from agent to agent. 

Under any market conditions, identifying and hiring the best-qualified agent is critical to seller success. However, it is even more imperative when markets shift away from historical trends. 

In this blog post, we will break down why choosing the right agent is paramount to finding success as a seller in today’s market.

They’re the Pilot of Your Home Sale

As a seller, your real estate agent is your primary resource for guidance, support, and performance-optimizing selling strategies. It’s their job, among other things, to direct your home sale in a way that accomplishes the best result possible and to be looking out for your best interests at all times. This means helping your home sell quickly and for top dollar. 

With this in mind, it’s imperative that the guidance provided by your agent is backed by industry experience, market data, and a proven track record of results. If you choose to hire an agent without doing your due diligence, your end result could be hindered by out-of-date strategies, fewer agent resources, or a general lack of market knowledge.

Positioning Your Home For the Market

Right now, one of the defining characteristics of Toronto real estate is its comparatively high volume of inventory. With that in mind, achieving success as a seller requires standing out from the competition. 

Beyond general advice and guidance, your real estate agent will be responsible for preparing and positioning your property for the market in a way that entices and captivates potential buyers without sacrificing ROI. 

This is a multi-faceted aspect of your sale, ranging from how your home looks, to how it is priced and beyond. Once again, working with an agent who has proven expertise in these stages of the selling process will maximize your probability of a high-result home sale. 

Navigating Negotiations

In today’s market, finessing the negotiation process is integral to optimizing the details of your home sale. This process isn’t simply about settling on a final price for your largest financial asset, your agent will also be responsible for negotiating the terms of your sales agreement. A well-written contract will help to ensure that your sales closes on schedule and minimizes the chances of the purchasers beaching the sales agreement and not closing.

Real estate negotiations are a highly specialized process, demanding a unique skill set that has been refined by years of professional experience and nuanced market insights. Therefore, you’ll want to select an agent who is a seasoned negotiator, representing hundreds of clients or more throughout their career.
