How do you find my agents?
We analyze real estate agent transaction data, online reviews, and agent interviews to find your best matches.We start by searching for agents who have experience selling homes like yours and in your area. Then we look at revealing data points to eliminate the agents who have a track record that indicates they don’t prioritize a seller’s best interests (representing both the seller and buyer in the same sale, over or underpricing, etc).Next, we analyze their online reviews before reaching out to them. Our goal when speaking to agents is to learn more about their marketing plan and to ensure they have the capacity to prioritize your sale and will allow you to cancel the exclusive agreement you sign with an agent when selling before its expiration date (not standard).
What’s the difference when you find agents for me versus if I find them myself on other websites?
When you search for agents online, it’s nearly impossible to see if they prioritize their commission over a seller’s best interests (track record of representing both the seller and buyer in the same sale to earn more commission) or if they have a history of over or underpricing the homes they sell.We believe that finding a good agent takes more than just looking at their reviews and how many homes they’ve sold (most websites focus on these). This is why we dig deeper into their transaction history and ensure that they won’t lock you into the agent agreement. Our no-cost vetting process increases your chances of finding a local agent with a reputable track record who has experience selling homes like yours.Plus, some websites charge agents to be featured — at SoldNest, agents can never pay us to be recommended. We earn a standard broker referral fee from the company the agent works for only after you have a successful home sale.
How does the no-agent contract commitment work?
When you decide which agent you're going to sell with, you'll sign an agreement with them (every home seller does). This is known as a "listing agreement,” and it's exclusive to you and your agent. The length of this agreement is usually ~6 months but is negotiable.The listing agreement does not include an option to cancel, which makes it difficult (and uncomfortable) to fire your agent if you feel like they’re not doing their job. This means that as long as your house sells, your agent gets paid, no matter what price it sells for and how long it takes. Some agents will take advantage of this by overpromising and moving on to get the next sale.Part of our vetting process is requiring every agent who is accepted into our network to allow you to cancel the agreement at any time, no questions asked. This means that when you sell with a SoldNest agent, you get a local expert who is motivated to put in their maximum effort and make you a top priority, 100% guaranteed.
