Bill Gaffney is Your
Portland Listing Agent
Choosing your next Realtor should be exhausting. Much too often, someone chooses their real estate agent because they are their brothers, cousins, gardener, or someone that you are only Facebook friends with.
Although choosing your next Realtor doesn't need to exclude those people, there should be a methodical approach.
A home is usually the largest investment in most individuals' lives. Whether you are selling your house and need to get top dollar or purchasing a home and need to get a great deal on the perfect property, your real estate agent is the person that makes that happen.
The best real estate agents in Portland
People that buy and sell a ton of real estate always use a great agent. Real estate investors have known it for a long time, "use a licensed real estate agent" to make sure everything goes smooth and to act as a legal buffer on this very litigious transaction.
Whether selling or buying real estate, there is always big money on the line. The large amount of money at stake makes an otherwise awesome person become sometimes unreasonable.
Choosing the right real estate agent
One super easy way to find the best real estate agent near you is to look at the number of listings that Realtor has. Portland Realtors that do many deals, year after year will provide you with a higher level of service based off of the experience they have gained representing buyers and sellers in the greater Portland area.
The best real estate agents are busy
You want to work with a real estate agent that completes many transactions every year so they are not “learning” while selling your home or representing you as a homebuyer. According to NAR the average Realtor only completes 10 real estate transaction “sides”. Each side would be representing a buyer or a seller. If a Realtor lists a home and also represents the buyer, that counts as two sides. Review Bill Gaffney's reviews and sold properties on Zillow.
Change Realty has helped hundreds of Tigard and Portland residents sell their home over the past 17 years. We have sold over 1,200 homes worth over 500 million dollars in real estate. See: Change Realty’s listings by clicking here.
Realtors that do more transactions in Portland are more likely to have a better understanding of not only the local market but what buyers are looking for in your Portland neighborhood. Change Realty has completed over 1,200 transactions in the Greater Portland area.
From having an experienced agent representing you as a buyer, they can save you an immense amount of time in searching for the perfect home once they understand your unique wants and needs in your next home.
From the selling perspective, it's critical to have an experienced seller's agent that markets your property properly and effectively. In addition, they will protect you from potential legal issues with property disclosures and contract disputes. A great real estate agent will negotiate not only the sales price of your home but the contract details, including the property inspection response.
The best Portland listing agents will understand how to properly value your home to price it properly at the time of the listing. Knowing what home amenities equate to from a value perspective in any real estate market (and Portland is no different) only comes from experience.
Currently, in the Portland Oregon real estate market, homes are staying on the market for only days. With this extremely limited inventory, most Portland real estate agents do not have any current listings. Change Realty has sold hundreds of homes in Portland, Tigard, Lake Oswego, Hillsboro, Oregon City, West Linn, and Clackamas.
