Why Exclusive Listings almost always benefit sellers…and buyers.
The confidence and trust built in such an exclusive listing relationship enables the agent to be fully invested in and committed to the marketing and sale effort.
Collaborating with one exclusive representative is much easier, as there’s only one person to whom you must disseminate property details for the due diligence information (lot and property size, construction details, improvements, what is included, etc.) that must be given to the buyers.
The exclusive real estate professional will prioritize their efforts to ensure your property is ready for sale. This includes strategic marketing of the property to its best potential.
The agency will put more resources into marketing efforts and promotions to sell the property. (Caution should be the rule if you have a resale in a development where the developers and their sales team are representing their own product. They have an inherent conflict of interest and no reason to prioritize the resales of competing homes and homesites).
You will retain more control over access to your property working with one agency than providing access to multiple persons.
You will retain more control over the sale, as you have one designated representative with whom to communicate and on whom you can rely. You will eliminate the confusion caused by negotiating and dealing with multiple agents who have not familiarized themselves fully with your objectives or the accurate and specific details of your property.
Your experienced exclusive real estate professional will present offers from qualified buyers and help you achieve the best price and terms, rather than looking for the quickest sale.
They will be your advocate and point of communication in the negotiating process providing guidance and strategy to a successful transaction, and help to avoid many pitfalls.
Buyers approach an exclusively listed property with confidence knowing they are dealing with a serious seller who has specified price and terms and has designated a reputable party to negotiate on their behalf.
Buyers know that they are removed from dealing with conflicts created by multiple parties having presented the same property to them.
