What Does a Realtor Do?

It’s almost impossible to think of everything I know I’ve done on a regular basis.   While I’d like to respond, it’s best for me to let you take look at part of a list on how Pat Vredevoogd-Combs told the House Financial Services Committee on Housing & provide the following list.  

Pre-Listing Activities

  1. Make appointment with seller for listing presentation
  2. Send seller a written or e-mail confirmation of listing appointment & call to confirm
  3. Review pre-appointment questions
  4. Research all comparable currently listed properties
  5. Research sales activity for past 18 months from MLS & public records databases
  6. Research “Average Days on Market” for property of this type, price range & location
  7. Download & review property tax roll information
  8. Prepare “Comparable Market Analysis” (CMA) to establish fair market value
  9. Obtain copy of subdivision plat/complex lay-out
  10. Research property’s ownership & deed type
  11. Research property’s public record information for lot size & dimensions
  12. Research & verify legal description
  13. Research property’s land use coding & deed restrictions
  14. Research property’s current use & zoning
  15. Verify legal names of owner(s) in county’s public property records
  16. Prepare listing presentation package with above materials
  17. Perform exterior “Curb Appeal Assessment” of subject property
  18. Compile & assemble formal file on property
  19. Confirm current public schools & explain impact of schools on market value
  20. Review listing appointment checklist to ensure all steps & actions are completed

That’s the beginning, certainly not the end.   To read the rest, keep following my blog or contact me at my business email PaulaZRealtor@gmail.com
