How much effort would you put into your job if you didn’t know you were going to get paid? This is something property agents in Hua Hin think about a lot (at least they should do). I’ve been working in the real estate industry here in Hua Hin for 5 years now and I’ve heard a lot of negativity regarding property agents and the amount of effort they put into their job. The most common being: we listed it with 7 different agents and we’ve only had one viewing in 6 months etc etc.
How Many Websites is Optimal?
There are many many agents in Hua Hin with more popping up all the time. As we all know nothing is regulated and all you really need is a website and a Facebook page. Most don’t even have an office. When you list with one there is a chance it will suddenly appear on multiple websites and before you know it you’ve lost control and you have random agents turning up ay your door. Once a property sits on 10 websites for a year it becomes recognisable to potential buyers and could create a negative impression of the propertry. It’s still not sold yet, what’s wrong with it?
What Happens When you Sign an Exclusive Agreement with an Agent?
If you sign an exclusive agreement you guarantee your agent a percentage if the house sells. The agent then has the freedom to put time, money and effort into selling your house. They can run ads for your particular property and target potential suitable buyers.
They can market the property properly and create eye-catching photos and videos and offer live walk throughs.
They can carry out a thorough due diligence to ensure no last minute emergencies and a smooth sales process.
They can ensure it doesn’t appear on 20 websites.
What are the Other Benefits?
You’ll have one point of contact: your agent. The one who is manging your listing. This can avoid confusion and in-fighting amongst agents which can create an unprofessional impression to buyers.
You can expect regular updates as to what’s being done to find you a buyer. How many click throughs your listing has had etc.
Basically you can rest assured that some work is being done. Your agent is being proactive rather than reactive. Your listing isn’t sitting there gathering dust waiting for the right person to come along.
