Selecting an Agent to Sell Your Home

Since the Real Estate downturn in the past 3 or 4 years it  is more important than ever to choose the right Real Estate Agent.   In order to select the right Realtor it is very important to interview atleast a few agents and determine who will represent you the best.  I have listed a few questions below that you should ask an agent when you interview them to sell your home:


1)Do you sell homes in my area?
2)What is your companies position(rank) in my marketplace?
3)How many homes have you personally listed and sold this year?
4)How long have you been a licensed Realtor in my area?
5)How long will it take to sell my home if we price it at market value?
6)What is the market value of my home and how do you determine this value?
7)Are you a full-time Realtor or do you have another job?
8)How do negotiations work once you present me an offer?
9)Do you have a contractor that can do qualified work at a fair price after inspection?
10) What updates are worth doing prior to listing?
11)When is the best day to list my property?
12) How confident are you that you will sell my home for the highest price in a predetermined amount of time?
13)What is your commission rate?
14)How much do you compensate the buyer’s agent?
15)How important is internet marketing to you and what websites can I see your current marketing of properties
16) When can you list my home and how quickly can you get it fully on the market?
17)Do you hire a professional photographer?

By asking these questions you should be able determine who is the right fit to represent you.  If you would like to interview The Andrew Neal Group at Re/Max Legends, feel free to call us at 317-513-7695 or you can email me at [email protected] Thank you.
