What to Ask Your Real Estate Agent When Selling a Home

by David Sessford Cash Property Buyer

You have finally decided to sell your house or property.  There are two ways to do this. You can sell your house on your own or hire a real estate agent to do the job for you. If you don’t have enough time to showcase your property to prospective buyers or complete the paperwork, you can choose the latter option. Not all real estate agents are the same. It is a good idea to interview several agents to make sure that their marketing strategies and procedures will sell your property at the best price and within the best timeframe possible. You should feel comfortable with the agent as well. Before you hire a real estate agent like Ready Steady Sell, you should also ask some questions. Here are some of them.

What can I expect during our partnership?

You should clarify things with the real estate agent like what you can expect during your partnership. It doesn’t only warm up your agent, but also gets him to reveal a bit more about himself and tell you what he can offer. Lack of transparency, hard work and communication are some of the most common grievances about real estate agents. If you hear anything about these concerns, you should dig further into the issue with more questions. This way, you will find a real estate agent who is dedicated to helping his clients achieve their goals.

How can I get the most for my property?

The agent should know the market, use comparable market analysis and price your property properly. Ask the agent how you can get the most for your property to know how knowledgeable he is in the area.

What marketing strategies will you use to sell my property?

Your real estate agent might be hard working but without the right marketing strategies, you won’t be able to sell your house quickly. If you want to sell your property for a good price and within a short period of time, you should find an agent who uses unique marketing strategies that can effectively grab the attention of prospective buyers.

How long have you been in the industry and what sets you apart from the rest?

The length of the agent’s career might be important, but there are more important factors like his experience with your kind of property or neighborhood. What is most important is that you feel comfortable with your agent and establish trust with him right away. If you interview several agents, you will be able to tell their differences on your own.

How fast can you sell my property?

The agent must be prepared to show the houses he has sold before and some backstory regarding the properties. He should be able to give you an ideal turn-time. This question will boost your confidence in the real estate agent.

If you are satisfied with the answers of the agent, you can consider hiring him. In case you are not convinced with his answers, you can always move on and look for a better real estate agent.
