Make sure you ask all of these questions before hiring a real estate agent.
Towards the beginning of every year, I speak with a huge number of potential home sellers who are looking to list their property on the market. They’re going through that interview process with different agents and searching for the right fit.
Naturally, a lot of them have hesitations and want to ask the right questions to make sure they hire the right person. Today I’m sharing my list of questions that sellers should be asking potential agents prior to hiring them.
Feel free to watch the full video, or use these timestamps to browse specific topics at your leisure:
0:55 — How many homes have you sold in the last 12 months?
1:50 — What is your plan to expose my home to the highest number of qualified buyers?
2:52 — What does your team look like?
4:15 — How often am I going to hear from you?
5:02 — How did you arrive at your suggested list price?
5:47 — What should I do to get my home ready for sale?
6:34 — What percentage of homes that you list actually sell?
7:35 — How much time are you putting into selling our home?
7:55 — Wrapping things up
If your agent isn’t answering these questions to your liking, give us a call and we’ll be happy to give our answers. If you have any questions about selling your home or about real estate in general, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
