Top Questions for Home Sellers
If you are looking to sell your home, it’s important to be selective when choosing a real estate agent to represent you. While you need to trust the experts, you should also have plenty of input when it comes to how your home will be sold, and be able to ask as many questions as you need to. You also need to ensure that your prospective real estate agent shares the marketing or advertising plan that they have in mind when it comes to selling your home. Marketing is everything when it comes to selling anything, and real estate is no exception.
What Should You Ask Your Real Estate Agent?
In general sellers need to ask their real estate agents about the value of their homes. Real estate agents are going to be experts on that subject, which is a rather complex matter. Sellers should also talk about what they will be able to afford when they’re discussing their options. An experienced real estate agent like Brett Cairns will understand the local market better, and they will know the nuances involved with purchasing new properties. It’s important to discuss all options throughout the process.
As a home seller, you also need to ensure that your real estate agent is properly licensed and can demonstrate a lot of relevant experience. Selling a home with a real estate agent is all about asking the right questions at the right time and staying informed.
Find out just how much experience and knowledge your real estate has in the local market area. Do they study and analyze the market? Do they write about it? Can they explain trends in the market. Can they provide you an assessment of value based on their personal experience or do they have to do a statistical analysis? Ask to see some of the articles that they have written. Do they make sense? Are they backed up with a thorough analysis?
