How to select a Real Estate Agent

If you are planning to sell your house or condo, you need a real estate agent. You have to be careful not to go for an agent just because they are a family friend or a relative that you feel obligated to use. A real estate transaction is a big financial decision. You need to take your time and go with a real estate professional with proven record, who will not only help you sell your property in a timely manner but to get you a good market price for your property.

You shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions like which real estate company are you associated with or how long have you been an agent. Other questions that you should consider asking are;

Are you a broker or a sales person?

Do you have any references from other buyers or sellers you have recently worked with?

How many buyers or sellers are you currently representing?

Have you worked in the area where I am interested in buying or selling my property?

What is the amount of commission you would charge?

Do you work with other agents or assistants?

Do you have any other professional designations?

Quite often, we have seen listings where the agent or broker hasn’t really put in any real effort into the listing. And their lack of interest shows in the images or lack of images that accompany the MLS listing of your property. More and more people are searching for a Condo or a House to buy online. A good Real Estate listings can mean the difference between a quick sale or a long and protracted process of selling your Condo or House. Not selling your House or Condo quickly could mean that you might have to reduce the price. Again, it is very important that you just don’t go with some Real Estate Guy because he or she is friends with your nephew. Find a good Real Estate Agent to help you sell your House or Condo.
