One of the biggest dilemmas anyone selling a property faces is whether to list with just one agent or not. In general this will reduce the commission rate you need to pay which could free up your negotiating skills when it comes to agreeing a price.
This is also a valid approach if your Barcelona property sale is taking place without you being around. This might be because of business or because you live in a different country. In this instance it will be very difficult to co-ordinate all the different agents and make sure they are all singing from the same page.
Selecting just one real estate agent will tell them that you have placed your faith in them and believe they are capable of completing the job for you. This means that they need to take the responsibility seriously and they will feel obliged to find you the best possible price.
But, this means you need to find a real estate agent that you can trust. You’ll be expecting them to do all the work and report back to you regularly in order to earn their commission. It is best to speak to friends and even your lawyer to find out which the best real estate agent is to use when you have property for sale in Barcelona.
Don’t forget that a good real estate agent will be able to provide an objective point of view. You are likely to be tainted by your need for a return or your love of a property. They will not be and should be used as your voice of reason.
Having said all this it is possible that you prefer to undertake your property for sale in Barcelona with several agents, this is fine if you are comfortable with this approach. Your commission might be higher but the competitiveness between agents might speed up your sale!
