If you own a property on the island of Barbados, and if you are ready to sell or rent that property, then you need to work with a top real estate agent in order to get the best possible deal. Over the past fifteen years, Junior Sparks has developed a reputation for being one of the single most trustworthy and respected real estate agents in Barbados.
Some landlords and property sellers make the mistake of thinking that they will rent or sell their property faster if they list with multiple agents. This is not always the case. In fact, oftentimes, listing your property exclusively with just one real estate agent gets much better results. There are several real reasons why this is the case.
First, when you work exclusively with one real estate agent like Junior Sparks, you build a professional relationship that is built on trust. When the listing agent knows that he or she is solely responsible for selling your property, then he or she is a lot more motivated and accountable regarding the sale of your property. When the listing agent has an exclusive listing, he or she knows he will definitely be paid for his or her efforts and marketing spend. So, he or she feels free to work harder and put more effort into the rental or sale of your property.
Another reason why it’s smart to work exclusively with one real estate agent like Junior Sparks is because your agent would be obligated to provide you with feedback regarding the marketing and showings of your property. So, you will stay well-informed about all of the key information related to the rental or sale of your property.
Junior Sparks’ company, the Global Estate Agency and BarbadosExpatHomes.com, offers its clients a wide range of marketing mediums: signage, social media promotion, video tours, professional photos including aerial shots, both local and international advertising. So, when you work with Junior, your property gets the best possible exposure to prospective renters and/or buyers.
Even if your property is listed exclusively with Junior, Junior does have the option, with your approval, to extend the marketing reach via over 50 external agents to make them aware of your property. This way external agents can offer it to their clients as well. So, even if you list exclusively with Junior Sparks, your property can still be shown to the clients of other agents as well.
If you decide to work exclusively with Junior Sparks, from the outset, be sure to explain to him your expectations regarding the price you wish to achieve. Junior Sparks has a deep knowledge of the Barbados real estate market and when you work with him, he will gain an understanding of your specific needs. He will work tirelessly to find the perfect deal for your situation.
Junior Sparks is well connected in the Barbados real estate market with over 15 years of experience. He was the first recipient of the Agent of the Year award in 2018 via the Barbados Estate Agents and Valuers Association, and appeared in not one, but two HGTV’s House Hunters International episodes.
To work with Junior, you would need to sign an exclusive listing agreement which covers the terms that the real estate brokerage service will provide for the sale or rental of your property.
Listing with multiple agents has more disadvantages besides the ones mentioned above. For example, unfortunately not all agents are professional and ethical. So, in some cases, your property would be on the market at many different list prices as some agents reduce the price without your approval. So that’s more work on your end to stay updated and keep checking each agent’s marketing mediums with your listing.
Also, when multiple “for sale” or “for rent” signs are on your front lawn, it is confusing to prospects who they should contact and also presents the thought that maybe the owner is desperate for a deal. This is not ideal. Further, it is very confusing for prospects regarding which agent to submit an offer through. This can discourage them from making offers.
You have one shot when it comes to your property going live on the market with good property images and in some cases some agents showcasing bad images could easily stop any possible interests in your property.
You can avoid all of these headaches by simply choosing to list exclusively with Junior Sparks, one of Barbados’ best real estate agents. Contact Junior today to get started!
