Choosing the Right Agent

When choosing an estate agent to market your property, it is a good idea to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Think about first impressions and whether you would want to buy from them. What was their telephone manner like? Have they responded to any requests promptly and politely? Do their offices present a professional and welcoming image?

Pioneer Properties have been successfully selling properties, with much of our business coming from referrals and word of mouth We firmly believe that the estate agency business is very much a people business and as a result we treat people with the same courtesy and respect as we would like to be treated with ourselves.

While some home buyers and sellers might try and tackle the entire process on their own, many choose to enlist the help of a real estate agent to guide them through the home buying or selling process. In fact, according to the 2022 Zillow Group Consumer Housing Trends report, 88% of homeowners choose to list their homes with a real estate agent when the time comes to sell. There are many reasons why so many people choose to work with a real estate agent rather than go it alone.

First and foremost, real estate agents are incredibly knowledgeable about the real estate market. They must be licensed by their state and have to keep up with continuing education to ensure they stay up-to-date with housing trends and other important aspects of the home buying and selling process. Unless you are a licensed real estate agent, you won’t have the knowledge and experience that a real estate agent has.

Additionally, Zillow surveyed sellers who used a real estate agent to list their homes to determine which services their agent provided that were most important to them. The results showed that sellers’ number one priority is to find buyers and lead them through the home sale process, which their real estate agent did for them by listing their property on real estate listing sites, using professional photographs to help the property stand out, and guiding them through the paperwork and legal requirements of selling their home. Zillow’s full findings can be found in the chart below.
