Selling your home can be complex, and finding the right agent is key. Between recommendations from friends and family, your co-worker who sells real estate part-time offering to help, and all of the review websites available, it isn’t easy to know who to trust with one of the most complex financial decisions of your life.
This is why taking the time to interview agents to sell what is likely your largest asset is essential. Here are a few questions you should ask when interviewing realtors to help you find the perfect fit for your needs:
➊ How long have you been in the business? How many homes have you listed and sold in the past year?
➋ What is your schedule and availability?
➌ Are you a full-time or part-time agent? How much time will you be able to dedicate to working with me?
➍ Do you work independently or with a team? If a team, who will be my main point of contact throughout the transaction?
➎ How will you communicate with me, and how often?
How many clients do you work with at one time?
➏ What is your marketing plan for my home?
➐ Can you provide references?
If you are thinking about selling, I would love to interview for the position to guide you every step of the way and net you the most money possible in our current market. Don’t live in my area? I’d be happy to connect you to a great agent to help you sell in your city!
