Looking to Sell Your Home in Cozumel?
Make Sure You Pick the RIGHT Real Estate Broker with this Checklist
When you want to sell your home in Cozumel, the Real Estate Broker or Agent you choose is going to determine three important things
- How smooth the process is
- How quickly your home sells
- How much you get for your home
As a Cozumel Real Estate Broker who has been helping fellow islanders buy and sell homes for over a decade, I know exactly what it takes to guarantee, provide and assure a smooth experience from end-to-end.
You can also count on me to maximize the sale price for sellers while minimizing the timeline.
However, as with any financial decision, it’s wise to shop around, and I encourage you to do so!
To help you find the best real estate agent to sell your home in Cozumel, here’s a checklist of what to look for:
Selling Your Home: What to Look for in a Cozumel Real Estate Broker or Agent Checklist:
One of the first things to ask any Real Estate Agent or Broker you are considering hiring in the state of Quintana Roo is if they are up-to-date on their credentials. Since 2014, all Real Estate Agents and Brokers have to be state-registered and certified.
You can check for yourself here by clicking on “LISTADO DE ASESORES INMOBILIARIOS ACREDITADOS EN EL ESTADO DE QUINTANA ROO.” Compliance with local laws shows not only legitimacy but also a dedication to stay at the forefront of one’s profession.
Experienced with the Local Market
Next, the longer a real estate broker works in the local Cozumel market, the more in-depth of an understanding they gain about how to position a home here. With many years of experience, I intuitively know the main features of a home to highlight, what buyers are looking for in homes here, and what kind of buyers will most likely be interested in a particular home.
This knowledge enables me to be one step ahead! I can target listings to the right audience and streamline the process of finding a buyer.
Be sure to ask how long a real estate broker or agent has been working in Cozumel to find out if they can offer you this advantage!
Good Record of Sales
What better way to find out how good a Real Estate Broker or Agent is than looking at their track record?
Asking how many sales an agent has made this year can give you insight into how active they are in the market and how effective they really are at selling homes.
Interview potential real estate brokers and agents. Ask them how this year has been sales-wise and when their last sale was.
If they don’t have much on record or aren’t willing to share openly about it, that’s a red flag.
Fluently speaking and understanding the local language is imperative to ensuring your deal goes smoothly. A Real Estate Broker or Agent needs to be able to check your contracts and ensure everything is accurate. Further, they need to be able to read up on the latest regulations and tax effects to stay current in the profession.
Reputable Online Presence
These days, online presence matters. It shows an agent’s level of investment in their work, and it’s also the medium through which your home will be listed for sale. The more expansive of a presence your agent has, the more exposure they will be able to give your listing.
When comparing Real Estate Brokers and Agents, check their website, blog, and social media profiles including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.
Note how often they post and interact with the online community.
Are they posting listings? Are those listings getting attention?
I know for a fact that ALL Cedral Brokers TODAY are on top of that game in the local real estate market!
Nobody in the local real estate business has Cedral’s online presence.
You want to enlist the help of a professional who’s known online and whose voice is an authority on real estate in Cozumel.
Creates Attractive and Enticing Listings
A large part of a successful sale is a great listing. Yours needs to stand out which requires using the latest tactics. Check into an agent’s current listings and see how they look. Do they paint the homes in an attractive light? Are there great descriptions, photos, slideshows, or video tours?
Keep in mind; your listing will be done in a similar manner to what you find.
More Than Just a Sales Promoter
Lastly, look for a Broker or an agent that will do more than just promote your home. Find out if they have the knowledge and expertise to guide you through the entire process.
When I represent a client, I ensure I protect their interests, offer them tips, and communicate effectively all along the way.
Further, I ask what your priorities are and take strategic action accordingly.
Find out what level of support a Real Estate Broker or Agent can provide. A great way to do so is by reading their reviews from past clients.
As you can read there I will guide sellers AND buyers through the entire process and help you LONG after the closing with inquiries or questions.
