When is the right time to contact an agent?

As soon as you decide to sell your home. There is always a buyer looking, and in real estate, the agent is your bridge to those buyers. Although the number of buyers remains relatively constant, they will act when a new property with high value comes up for sale.

Speed is key for both you and the buyer, and an agent delivers speed.

Creating a perception of value and a sense of urgency will see the greatest number of showings when your property is first introduced to the marketplace. Buyers who look at your property typically are financially qualified who have been working with a Realtor® already, have seen the other properties in the area, and are knowledgeable about market prices. They contacted agents months ago about properties they found, and they are now prepared to make offers when they see the right home at the right price.
