Based on what preferences do you compare real estate agents? 

In the comparison tool, we ask you to choose one of the preferences below: 

  1. Low brokerage fee of the broker
  2. Lots of sales experience
  3. Real estate agent in the neighborhood
  4. All three are equally important

The important question here is what do you consider important about the real estate agent. Each preference has its advantages over another preference, but it’s about what you yourself find important. The differences between the preferences are described below. Discover it and then choose the best real estate agent for you! 

1. Sell your house with an agent with a low brokerage fee

When you choose a broker with a low commission rate, the total cost of the broker will probably be lower than with any other preference. There are several reasons why a broker charges a lower commission. For example, due to inferior service, no total package or the brokerage firm chooses mass. In addition, the broker may have less experience in selling homes, which means the selling price is lower. When comparing realtors, clearly ask what is included in the realtor’s service.

2. Sell house with an experienced realtor

A real estate agent with experience has good reviews, but in most cases is a bit more expensive. This is due to the good quality and service of the broker. The advantage of an experienced broker is that he or she knows the neighborhood well, so he or she is aware of what is going on in the neighborhood. A higher brokerage commission does not mean that you will immediately lose out on choosing an experienced real estate agent . The general expectation is that the house can be sold for a higher price. 

3. Sell house with a realtor in the neighborhood

A realtor in the neighborhood of the house you want to sell ensures that the realtor knows all the ins and outs of the neighborhood. In addition, the realtor sells many homes in this neighborhood. Thus, the realtor knows what the right selling price is. In addition, there is a chance that the broker has recently sold similar homes. Because of this, the broker may already have interested parties for the sale property.

4. A real estate agent with a good rating, good price and in the neighborhood

Prefer a little bit of everything? Then the Proper Realtor system will take into account the real estate agents comparison for both a good selling agent, a brokerage fee that is not too high and the agent must be reasonably close. It is possible that you will be put in contact with a real estate agent where one preference has been taken into account more than another. But assume that this choice combines the best of all three preferences.

Getting to know the real estate agents

After Juiste Makelaar has selected two brokers, these brokers will contact you to schedule an appointment. To make sure you know how to compare these brokers, here are some points you can pay attention to. This way you can select the best real estate agent for you! 

Prepare in advance what information you want to know from the realtor. Below are a number of questions to help you get a good idea of the realtor and the corresponding presentation. 

  • How will the house be presented? Do you agree with this?
  • On which platforms will the house be offered for sale? This way you can estimate the size of the interested audience. 
  • What will be the estimate of the selling price? Is the justification convincing?

This way you will find out how the real estate agent works and how he will use his network. In this way you have an idea how the brokers work and how he thinks he can successfully sell your house. The most important point of these questions is how good a feeling you have with the broker. 

Comparing real estate agent costs 

After you have spoken to several realtors, you can compare the costs of the realtors in addition to your personal preferences. The brokerage fees of different realtors can vary, so it is always good to compare these costs. But to compare costs it is important to compare the same points. 

  • First of all, what is the percentage the broker charges?
  • Is there only a commission or also a certain bonus when a desired result is achieved?
  • What do you get for this price? Check whether there are any additional costs such as an Open House, environmental information, brochures, advertising costs or an architectural inspection.
  • When do you have to pay? It is possible that you will have to pay a percentage during the selling process. Therefore, find out what you will pay when the sale is completed or if it is unsuccessful.
  • Is the amount including or excluding VAT, this can vary from broker to broker. So be sure to compare the same costs.

Still not sure about the real estate agent? Compare the realtor with these points!

If you still can’t choose a realtor after comparing, there are still a few points you can look at critically. This way you can be sure that you are convinced to choose one of the brokers.

  1. See what properties the broker has for sale? Do you agree with the presentation of these?
  2. Do you have confidence in the qualities of the broker? 
  3. How quickly are the broker’s current properties selling?
  4. Call the realtor’s office to get a phone impression. Potential homebuyers also call the real estate agent t, so the first impression is important.
  5. Check the Internet to see if the brokerage firm has its marketing in order.
