Home sellers know that marketing their home is not a simple matter. One of the reasons why selling a home is so complex has to do with the all the laws and regulations associated with this type of activity. Without the help of a good real estate agent it can be a very complicated thing to do. All home sellers should get the help of a competent and qualified real estate agent to sell their property. The following top questions home sellers ask real estate agents are listed below. Home sellers who plan on entering the market should take a look at them.
Do you have experience?
This is an important question because it allows a home seller to gauge a real estate agent’s ability to be a good home seller in the current market. An agent’s experience should also be verified through recorded sales.
Is this a good time to sell my home?
A person can sell their home at any time they wish. However, this does not mean that the market is always set up for a seller’s advantage. There are downturns in the market and a good agent will know when they are. Timing is important to selling a home and a good agent should have a sense of when to sell and how long it will take to market a property.
What is a realistic price for my home?
A realtor will base your home’s prices off of its location, its price range when compared to other homes in the neighborhood and its condition. There are many more factors that will be considered as well. The bottom line is that the price range for each home will vary according to different factors.
How will you market my home?
Realtors will usually market a home in places where home buyers are looking for them. A realtor will also network with other realtors to figure out who is looking for a home that is similar to the one that is being marketed.
How will you communicate to me about what is happening with my home?
Realtors will naturally take down your contact information and keep you informed about everything that is happening with your property. They can also use social media, email and text messages to let you know how your property is doing on the market.
