Here are three reasons why you should be listing exclusively.

While you may think listing your property with multiple Chania real estate agency firms enable your property to be sold faster, that might not always be the case. ARENCORES and Chania Real Estate spells out why signing an exclusive agreement with a real estate agency might work in your favour:

1) Accountability

If you expect to give your property as exclusive to an agent, expect them to be accountable about your listing. Listing it with one agent in Chania is one of the first steps forward in the fact that you trust the agent enough to sell your property at the right price.

We believe creating an amiable relationship with the agent in order for them to cater to your real estate needs accurately and so that they understand your goals and needs precisely. The real estate agent will be obliged to check back with you often on your property listing and will be able to lay out a marketing strategy to promote your property aside from creating a good, professional and personal relationship.

Among the many marketing options that ARENCORES and Chania Real Estate offer our clients include: creating a a dedicated digital marketing approach, taking professional photos, and marketing to the right channels that fit the parameters of the property.

At the outset of your understanding of the agent, you will be able to provide the real estate agent a chance to sell your property within an assigned period of time, through which they are aware they have a deadline to market and sell your property.

Discuss the time of exclusivity with your real estate agent and make sure you sign the Exclusively Listed Property Agreement as outlined by the Real Estate Agents Association of Chania (SYMENOCH), along with providing the property information, property title, deed and your passport copy. It is important to understand that there are certain expectations and criteria you need to manage with your agent.

2) Easier Manageability

One of the factors to keep in mind while listing multiple properties is that most professional real estate firms provide property management services. You might argue that it’s an anomaly to place your properties with one real estate agency that you know and trust as well as provides property management services instead of putting your eggs in different baskets which are difficult to keep track of.

It must be noted however, that the nature of the properties you have also deserve consideration before listing with one real estate agent – is it off-plan, a luxury villa or a small apartment in Chania. If it’s a combination, can the real estate agent manage all of these parameters?

Other questions would include your financial goals and see whether your agent and you are on the same page. Discuss whether you would want to sell long-term or rent this property short-term. It would be important for you to do the necessary research to find the firms that deal in the similar type of property in your area.

3) Expertise

If you have a property that you want to sell in a particular area, such as Apokoronas, Kissamos, Chania Old Town, Akrotiri, then making sure you go with an agent that knows the area and the risks associated with the property selling well. An agent who specialises in an area that you have your property most probably tracks the market well, gets the pragmatic and reliable market information report from statistical data and will help you look at the price points as well as the knowledge of how the particular area is performing in the market.
