10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Real Estate Agent

Before selecting an agent to list your home for sale, you should ask certain questions to ensure that the agent you do decide to choose will give you the best possible representation, place your interests above that of his/her own, have integrity and ethics, and work hard to market and sell your home. Here are 10 questions that you should ask before hiring a real estate agent.

1.) What sets you apart from other agents that will help sell my home?
2.) What’s kind of reputation does your company have in this area (and others, if applicable)?
3.) How do you intend to market my home?
4.) Has your company ever sold homes in my area/city?
5.) Are you solely responsible for the advertising you do or does your company pay for and oversee all advertising?
6.) On average, how long do your listings remain on the market before finally selling?
7.) On average, what percentage of the list price do your listings actually sell fore, when your listings sell?
8.) Do you work with buyers and if so, how many are you currently working with?
9.) Do you have references?
10.) Can I terminate the listing early if I am unhappy with your performance? If so, what fees, if any, must I pay?

These questions, or any that are similar, will help you decide which agent will be suit your needs! Good luck!

Thank you for reading and for doing something positive today.
