sell your home

Are you selling a home for the first time? Even if you’ve had experience selling your property in past years, today’s real estate transactions are driven by market data analyses and technology. Choosing the right agent to sell your home is more important than ever.

6 Tips for Choosing the Right Agent

Your home is likely your biggest asset and selling it is a major financial transaction. The right real estate professional will protect your interests and save money when possible. Here are some tips for finding the right agent:

  1. Avoid hobbyists – Selling real estate is not a hobby. Facilitating and managing real estate transactions is a serious profession. You don’t want your real estate professional to be unavailable because he or she paints houses on weekends or teaches school Monday-Friday.
  2. Heed red flags – Bad real estate agents raise red flags, so watch for telltale signs. An agent who is late to your appointment and doesn’t ask you any questions may not serve your best interests.
  3. Industry-best marketing – Your real estate agent should be affiliated with area multiple listing services and HAR.com. Seek agents who have proven processes in place, a support staff, professional photography resources, and staging experience. The ideal agent has the experience, training, and skills you need.
  4. Interview 2+ agents – During the interview, you should feel a connection and a sense of trust. Before an interview, list what is important and your priorities for selling your home. When scheduling the interview, it helps to have the following information about your property:
    • Location
    • Number of bedrooms/bathrooms
    • Property condition
    • Square footage/acreage
    • Unique features (pool, etc.)
  5. Referrals – The National Association of Realtors says 65% of sellers use agent referrals from family and friends. This makes sense; you can usually trust others’ positive experiences.
  6. Research online – Check Realtors’ websites including social media. Several online reviewers offer information about your area’s real estate pros, including Realtor.com and Zillow. Be wary, however. Many sites are trying to connect you with an agent that paid to be included in your search.

If at any point you are unhappy with the real estate agent you chose to sell your home, take action. Contact your agent’s office and share your concerns immediately.
