Benefits of using a Vendor Advocate
Vendor Advocate Benefits
Reducing STRESS and anxiety.
Selling (and buying) a home is one of the most overwhelming and stressful events that we can go through. Not knowing if you can fully trust your Real Estate Agent, not fully understanding the current market trends and pricing in your area, feeling confused about all of the various legal documents that are required, being unsure about the best style (Private Sale, Auction, Set Sale, Tendor, etc.) for you….. all of these concerns create enormous stress and uncertainty. Fair enough too! You will also notice that at this same time, EVERYBODY you know has an opinion and becomes an expert in this field. Well meaning friends and family members can actually increase the stress, rather than reduce it. The benefit of having an industry expert who offers you unbiased advice by your side, every step of the way will GREATLY reduce your stress.
Assurance of getting your BEST possible price.
You’ve worked hard to present your property in its very best light, and endured the campaign and finally you have an offer! How do you know if it is a good offer, or the best the market will provide? Could you possibly get more? Or, it is the day before the Auction and the Agent is pressuring you for your decision on your Reserve price. How do you know what is fair and possible?
Again, this time can create enormous amount of stress and uncertainty. Having an independent professional by your side when you need to make these decisions will ensure that you are making well informed, wise choices with no pressure.
Empowered in making the RIGHT decisions.
There are so many decisions to make when selling your home. From the Agent you choose, to whether or not to stage your home, the style of sale, the inclusions, the price and finally the offers. From beginning to end of the entire process, your Vendor Advocate will guide you through the maze of options and give you advice that is truly best for you and your unique situation. This comes from many years of Real Estate selling experience and is not biased from one singular point of view. It is an education that you can partake in as much, or as little as you choose. With this unbiased information and feedback along the way, you can be confident that the decisions you are making, are the right ones for you.
Saving you valuable time.
Everybody seems to be time poor these days. By engaging a Vendor Advocate, you now have your own Personal Assistant that will oversee your sale and be acting as a Project Manager for you. You can be involved as much, or as little as you like. We will liase with all of the required professionals involved in the sale (Solicitors, Real Estate Agents, Staging Crew, Tradesmen, etc.) and act on your behalf. This will save you precious time from spending hours on phone calls and meetings. You will then receive a brief to summarise and keep you updated with the main facts and activity from just one source! Your Property Home Base Vendor Advocate.
Sounds too good to be true, right? While it does not cost you anything extra, Vendor Advocates do get paid. We are paid by the Real Estate Agents.
