Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Listing Agent

Image of a real estate listing agent in front of a houseWhen it’s time to sell your home, you need to hire a listing agent who will work hard to ensure you get the most money for your home. After all, your home is likely one of your largest assets. Therefore, you want to hire someone you can trust and who can deliver the results you deserve.

Before you sign with any listing agent, make sure you ask these 3 key questions.

1. How do you ensure my home is priced properly?

While you want top dollar, if your listing agent advises you to over-price your home, it could sit on the market for months. When you price your home correctly from the beginning, you often get multiple offers on the same day, which can then drive up the sales price. Your listing agent should have the know-how, research tools, and expertise that comes from experience to help you come up with the best listing price.

2. How will you market my home?

Ideally, your listing agent should take a multi-faceted approach to marketing your home. This can include such things as open houses, online exposure via home finding sites and social media, and Realtor tours, just to name a few. Your listing agent should also be able to offer staging advice, as staging is a vital aspect of marketing.

You want a listing agent who communicates often. This includes getting feedback after showings, providing regular marketing updates, and sharing comments from potential buyers and other real estate agents, Set your communication expectations high. The last thing you need is to feel ignored or not important to your listing agent. Ideally, you want to feel like family.

By taking the time to interview some listing agents and getting the answers to these key questions, you can feel confident that you’ll sell your home quickly and for the highest price possible.
