As Long Island Premier Realtors®, it’s expected and encouraged for home sellers to ask questions about the selling process.

Can’t I Just Hire The Real Estate Team Who Gives Me The Highest Price?
A big mistake a seller can make when trying to sell their home would be to hire the Realtor® who suggests the highest list price for your house with no supporting numbers to document this information for your neighborhood. Any agent who tells you that they can get you a price higher than everyone else, is probably not the one you should list with. A Realtor® cannot make up any price and sell it. They have to rely on the tools we have to guide us to a realistic fair value price. They should show you homes that have recently sold, houses that are under contract and the current competition of houses on the market. Of course taking into consideration any modern updates or renovations you have made that the competition doesn’t have. Listing at a higher price might get the Realtor® the listing, but it won’t get the seller a higher sales price. You will never get a second chance to make a first impression, so it’s important that you and your Realtor® price it right from the beginning. Ultimately, it’s the sellers choice for the listing price, with guidance from their Agent.
