Selecting Your Listing Team

By Pete in September 2008 with 0 Comments


It occurred to me recently that while showing a number of properties in my Downtown San Diego Neighborhood that the listing agents of these properties were not from the Downtown San Diego Neighborhood. So, when asked specific questions regarding the properties there wasn’t a direct answer but a hesitation, and “I don’t know but I’ll get back to you” responses. Honestly, I hope everything works out for them. For anyone who has not yet listed their home but is considering it, I suggest to do the following.

Interview as many teams as possible. Find true Downtown San Diego Real Estate specialists. Find out what they know about the home itself, the building, the HOA stability, and the future of the neighborhood. What tools would they use to market your home for maximum exposure? What technological advances are they going to bring to the table to set your home apart from the others out there that are described as the following: Newly built hip urban condo close to the ballpark and horton plaza. Includes granite countertops, city views etc. Are you being told you can get a certain amount for your home, and is that amount being backed up with numbers? Do they live in the Downtown San Diego Complex where you live? If not, do they live in the Downtown neighborhood? If not, do they ever spend any time in the neighborhood besides Gaslamp bars and baseball games at Petco Park? Do they have knowledge of the developer that built the community, and finally…are they familiar with the different floorplans in your building?

Please take the time to actually ask these questions. Find the Downtown San Diego Real estate Broker that can answer any question regarding your home without hesitation or confusion. Find the team that lives in the building, or lived in the building at one time… OR has possibly sat on the HOA board for that building. Does your choice have knowledge of the team of people who sold the building originally for the developer or had some connection with that developer as it pertained to the sales and marketing of that building i.e. Sales Manager, Preferred Lender etc?

We, look forward to sitting with you, as a 92101 Urban Living Team, in your living room while you ask us these questions.
