Most homeowners preparing to put their homes on the market don’t know exactly what to look for when hiring an agent. As a home seller, you’re about to place what may very likely be your most important financial asset into your real estate agent’s hands, so remember: you can treat your agent like any professional applying for a job. Interview him, take time with your decision, and make sure you’re comfortable with it before signing anything! Trust is by far the most important element of any relationship, and yours with your REALTOR® is no exception.
Before partnering with a real estate professional, get to know him, his experience, and how he’s going to guide you through the process of selling your home. Ask these questions, and any others you have, before hiring an agent. See Brett’s answers below!
