Ben Swanson
Keller Williams Integrity First
About Ben

My Real Estate journey started in 1999 when I bought my first condo in Mesa. The agent used was very unprofessional and not very organized. On closing day, I went to sign final docs and the title company said; "You need $1000 in your account for “reserves” ". Not only did I not know what that was (at 19 years old), but didn’t have the money. Luckily, I was able to borrow it from a friend and close. I made a vow when I got my license to NEVER let that happen to a client, EVER! Market Expertise, extreme communication and negotiating EVERY TIME! From the seasoned investor that says, “STOP UPDATING ME, I know you are on your game” to the 1st time home seller/buyer that says, “ thanks for calling me for the 4th time today, I just don’t get it” the Swanson Team is here every step of the way to make it EASY, EDUCATIONAL and FUN, on a Silver Platter!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Maricopa County?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.

A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase.

Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Maricopa County?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
