There are a lot of real estate agents operating in Bristol. Most of these real estate agents are probably not going to be right for you at all. This is one of the reasons why we have put together this guide. We want to show you why it is worth putting in the effort to find the right estate agent in Bristol for you.
As you go through this guide to choosing the right Bristol estate agent, you will notice that there is a common theme throughout; you need to choose an estate agent that knows what they are doing. You need an estate agent with experience. In the world of real estate, you will not make a single penny if you never sell a home. The larger a company is, the more successful they are. However, you may also want to opt for a smaller company (which has a bit of experience), this way you get the more personal touch when you are looking to sell your property, which is something that most people want!
They have experience with your type of property
We can’t stress just how important this is. If you work with a Bristol estate agent, then they need to have experience with the property that you are looking to sell. Let’s say, for instance, you are selling a house worth £1,000,000. You probably are not, but entertain the notion for a while. Would you really want the person who is selling it on your behalf to mainly be dealing with flats in their day to day life? No, you do not! It is a stupid idea. They will not understand the type of property that you are selling. If they do not understand the property, then there is no chance that they are going to be able to sell it for you. It really is as simple as that!
Another reason as to why they need experience is because you want them to be able to understand the market. You want them to have a rough idea about how much properties normally sell for. This way you can be sure that they are not undercharging for your property which, in our opinion, is the worst thing in the world. You are going to be leaving money on the table. You also do not want them to overcharge because you will not earn a single penny like that!
You want somebody who can sell
When you meet a real estate agent for the first time, you are going to start to get an idea about how they sell properties. You want to choose somebody that is enthusiastic about the property that you are selling. You do not want them to look at the property and think “yeah, this is just another property for them”. You want to look at them and you want them to think “yes. I really want to sell this. I am excited”. If they do think like that, you have an awesome seller on your hands!
