If a Realtor is a master at their craft, today’s discussion is all about just that, what they do and what you should expect from them.
Oh, the behind the scenes planning.
Checking off what needs to get done on the checklist; checking it twice.
It’s like the well-oiled machine that operates without problems.
How your home selling process seems to flow effortlessly towards closing is all about the Realtor’s proper planning; knowing what needs to get done and when. Having done this hundreds of times before, will enable the Realtor to move your home sale through the various home selling stages, while keeping your involvement to a minimum, knowing what you expect and want from the sale of your home. Yet, at the same time, when you do want to know what’s going on, you’ll find that your Realtor is on the top of her/his game and can happily fill you in.
“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now” – Alan Lakein
