The Importance of Following Up with Your Listing Agent

When you select and sign an agreement with a Realtor(R) to list your home for sale, it is imperative you follow up with them to see a copy of the listing that the world will see. Lately, I’ve seen an increasing number of mistakes which range from: upside down photos, the WRONG Street address (building #), incorrect information in the listing, or no information at all.

Ask your agent for a link to your MLS listing. Go through the pictures, read through the comments, check the condo fee and what’s included, etc. A second set of eyes, particularly ones who know the property even better than the agent, can’t hurt. You might catch a mistake, you might suggest a revision that’ll improve the listing.

Remember, 90% of people start their home search online, so this internet advertisement in the form of your MLS listing is the first introduction they have to your property. Make it right!!
