Homes hold lots of memories. They may be where you raised your children or the site of your family’s annual Thanksgiving get-together.
The decision to sell your home is a big one, and it’s important to choose a real estate agent that you trust when you list your home. The process of selling a home can be lengthy and emotional, so you need someone by your side who understands and can guide you through.
When you meet a potential listing agent for the first time, treat it like an interview. Of course, you need to ask about the current housing market and how much the agent thinks your home might sell for, as well as about his or her fees and whether they are negotiable. But, it’s important to delve a bit deeper.
It’s vital that you feel comfortable with your listing agent and that he or she will work in your best interest. Find out about his or her strategies for working with sellers, experience, and level of knowledge about your local market.
Here are 10 essential questions to ask your agent before listing your home:
The agent-seller relationship should be a true partnership with open communication. Sellers should carefully evaluate potential agents and do their homework about the current real estate market to ensure the suggested sale price is in line with recent transactions.
