WHAT SHOULD I ASK MY LISTING AGENT BEFORE I SELL?
Updated: Mar 12
There are many questions you need to ask a real estate agent when it comes to selling your home. You want to make sure they can sell your home for the best possible price but also that they line up with your own values. This video will show you the most important questions that you NEED to ask a listing agent before hiring them.
Hey everyone! My name is Suneet Agarwal with the Best Sac Homes Group and Big Block Realty North and today I'm going to show you the most important questions that you need to ask a listing agent before hiring them.
WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE
The first question you need to ask is whether or not the agent has experience selling homes in your neighborhood. This is important because an experienced agent will know the market conditions and what buyers are looking for in a home like yours.
WHAT IS YOUR MARKETING PLAN
The second question you need to ask is what the agent's marketing plan is for your home. You want to make sure they have a solid plan to get your home in front of as many potential buyers as possible. The more exposure your home gets, the better chance you have of getting top dollar for it.
WHAT IS YOUR COMMISSION
The third question you need to ask is what the agent's commissions are. You want to make sure you're not paying too much in commissions, but also that the agent is motivated to sell your home for the highest possible price.
WHAT IS YOUR COMMUNICATION STRATEGY
The fourth question is how will the agent communicate with you during the process. You want to make sure they keep you updated on showings, offers, and negotiations so you can make the best decisions for your home sale and ultimately your future.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?
The fifth and final question you need to ask is what other services the agent provides. Some agents offer home staging, open houses, or even help with negotiating repairs after a home inspection. These are all valuable services that can help you get top dollar for your home.
Asking these questions will help you narrow down your choice of listing agents and find the one that's right for you.
And there you have it, these are the very best questions to ask your listing agent, before you hire them!
