5 Reasons to Grant a Sole Mandate

If you’re putting your home on the market soon, you’ll have several important decisions to make - and granting a sole mandate to your realty agent is one of them.

From personalised service to a higher chance of fetching the price your home deserves, there are a world of benefits that come with granting a sole mandate. In this article, we’ll cover 5 of the big perks of dealing with a single Cape realty agency.

1. A dedicated agent - and a trusting business relationship

A sole mandate gives your agent the exclusive right to market your property and negotiate with buyers. This is an instant motivator for your agent - and it’s easy to see why.

A sole mandate is a vote of confidence in your estate agent. By showing them that you trust them to handle your property sale exclusively, you’ll be creating a healthy business relationship that yields results.

2. A customised marketing plan for your property

Your agent will develop a unique marketing strategy for your property, advertising it in the right places and drawing on their network of contacts to identify potential buyers.

3. A sense of security during home viewings

With only one agency handling your house keys, you’ll have fewer security concerns during house viewings when you’re not at home.

4. No haggling over commissions

By giving one agency a sole mandate, you’ll know exactly who will receive the commission that’s due on the sale of your property. Also, you will only need to pay this amount once the sale has gone through.

5. A pressure-free selling process

Dealing with multiple real estate agencies - with each one wanting to close the sale before the others - can start to feel like a cattle auction. You may feel pressured to sell at a price that’s not what you had in mind - not to mention dozens of calls from several agents every week.

With a sole mandate, you’ll never be bulldozed. In dealing with one agency, you’ll be able to pick and choose between different buyers and their offers until you settle on the best one.

If you’re thinking of selling your home, we’d love the opportunity to partner with you and market your property professionally. Contact Cape Realty today and chat to one of our
