When selling your home, hiring the right listing agent is crucial. Here are some tips to help you hire the best Realtor for your needs.
Choose a Realtor you can easily communicate with, one who is familiar with your neighborhood, and one who has a marketing plan that will maximize exposure for your home. Ask the Realtor for recent clients that you can call for a reference. Ask your friends and neighbors who they would recommend. Ask lots of questions. Keep in mind, this is essentially an employment interview for the Realtor, so be sure to ask what their qualifications are. How long have they been selling homes? How many homes have they listed or sold recently? Ask the Realtor for a detailed analysis of properties currently for sale in your area, and properties that have recently sold or been taken off the market. This information will help you establish a realistic asking price.
Remember, you're hiring a Realtor for their knowledge and expertise, so choose your agent thoughtfully.
