It may seem unusual to engage the services of a Vendor Advocate to deal with your real estate agent when selling your home, however it is becoming increasingly popular and adds incredible value to the process. Especially as it doesn’t cost you anything extra to use such a service. Vendor Advocates deduct their fee on settlement of the sale from the agent’s commission, so you effectively have two experts working for you for the price of one.
A Vendor Advocate will save you thousands by negotiating a very competitive selling commission with the agent, help you increase your sale price through repairs, upgrades and interior styling, arrange pre-sale pest & building reports, visit the open homes and deal directly with the agent on your behalf throughout the entire process. Honesty and transparency are their highest core values and they specialise in keeping the agent focused and motivated to achieve a fantastic result.
Preparing your home for sale can be daunting and very time consuming especially when you’ve lived in the home for many years. Our Vendor Advocates remove the guesswork by providing detailed recommendations on what needs to be done so the home appeals to the maximum number of buyers. Helping you increase your sale price through effective property presentation is an important step in their Vendor Advocacy process.
After you’ve spent considerable time preparing the property for sale, the last thing you should worry about is whether or not you can trust your real estate agent. So how do you know which agent is going to do the best job for you? Our Vendor Advocates never base their decision on which agent has the cheapest fee, the highest market appraisal or is the nicest person. They use extensive industry knowledge and 30 years of property experience, combined with a strict interview process to ensure you make the right choice. And the benefits don’t stop there.
Having a Vendor Advocate by your side removes the stress of having to deal directly with the real estate agent as they take care of this for you. Regrettably, many agents are more interested in a quick sale than achieving the best possible price. When working with a Vendor Advocate you will never feel pressured and will always receive honest feedback and unbiased advice. Even though they share in the fee paid to the agent, they remain completely independent with the main focus on keeping the agent honest and motivated to achieve the best possible result. That is their secret to consistently achieving success for their clients.
Just as Buyers Advocacy has changed the way people buy, Vendor Advocacy is changing the way people sell. If you’re thinking of selling soon, before you call in the real estate agents it’s worth speaking with a Vendor Advocate to see how they can help you. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
