There are Two Things You Definitely Don’t Need to Hear from Your Listing Agent…

You’ve decided to sell your house. You begin to interview potential real estate agents to help you through the process. You need someone you trust enough to:

  • 1.Set the market value on possibly the largest asset your family owns (your home)
  • 2.Set the time schedule for the successful liquidation of that asset
  • 3.Set the fee for the services required to liquidate that asset

An agent must be concerned first and foremost about you and your family in order to garner that degree of trust. Make sure this is the case.

Be careful if the agent you are interviewing begins the interview by:

Bragging about their success
Bragging about their company’s success

An agent’s success and the success of their company can be important considerations when deciding on the right real estate professional to represent you in the sale of the house. However, you first need to know that they care about what you need and what you expect from the sale. If the agent is not interested in first establishing your needs, how successful they may seem is much less important. It’s very possible they don’t have your needs at the top of their list!

Look for someone who comes in prepared well enough to explain the current real estate market and patient enough to take the time to show how it may impact the sale of your home.

You don’t want someone who is only interested in trying to sell you on how great they are.

There are many agents from which to choose. Pick one who truly cares.
