Legitimate Expectations of a Seller From Their Realtor™
July 3, 2018 | Tom Ashworth
People reasonably assume things to follow a certain script expecially a Realtor™. For example it is assumed that Coffee would be hot, beer cold and Mexican food spicy. All these are legitimate expectations and are reasonably expected by anyone; however if any of these expectations are not met then the consequences are trivial.
The effect of not meeting legitimate expectations however increases as the value of the object increases. The Legitimate Expectations usually increase with an increase in value and not meeting them is more consequential therefore careful thought is required before one takes decision on matters of high importance or value like Marriage, children and choice of career.
House is usually the largest asset of an average homeowner, the seller of a home has his own legitimate expectations like getting the prevailing market value for his home and getting paid in a timely manner with as few hassles as possible.
According to the Home Buyers and Sellers Survey there has been an increase in real estate professionals being entrusted by homeowners with the sale of their homes. The benefit of aligning yourself with trusted real estate professionals like Burnet Texas Realtor™ is an increase in likelihood of getting favourable terms from the sale contract. The owners only need to share their legitimate expectations with their agent before putting their house up for sale.
The agent can answer queries of the homeowner like:
- What can be done to price the home correctly?
- How to make a better impression on the prospective buyers?
- How to deal with the market place.
The seller has legitimate expectations form the agent. These include hard work, honesty and representation of the seller’s interests as best as they can. Any agent who does over and above these legitimate expectations and exceeds them is said to have shown an exemplary service, agencies like Burnet Texas Realtor™ are a case in point of such exemplary track record.
