Tips for Sellers

1.  Hire the right brokerage and agent. There a multitude of ways an agent can sell your home.  The difference is the level of service and execution of those services.  Who you chose matters.
2.  Maximize the value of your home with proper presentation.  Home improvements, repairs and staging all increase your home's value.  Choose a REALTOR that has the experience and resources to maximize the value of your home and sell it quickly.
3.  Drive massive traffic to your home.  Make sure your agent and brokerage create a personalized marketing plan for your home to highlight it's best features, maximize it's exposure and bring qualified offers to your home.
4.  Negotiate the best terms for you. Negotiation is key to obtaining the most favorable terms and price for you and your buyer.
5.  Clear communication.  Consistent communication not only with you but with all parties during the escrow process is vital to a smooth, stress-free transaction.  Knowing what to expect and when to expect it can be the difference between a pleasurable experience and a bad one.  A clear written timeline of every deadlines and contingencies.

"Negotiate the best terms for you."

Interesting advice. Why does this same advice not apply when the consumer attempts to apply it to the REA's services?

"Negotiation is key to obtaining the most favorable terms and price for you and your buyer."

Who are you talking to? The posted sounded like the start of "advice for sellers". This sounds like you're now talking to another REA...and the buyer's REA at that.
