5 Questions To Ask Before Your Choose A Listing Property Agent

Choosing a listing agent is the most important aspect in selling your home. Few people realize though that choosing one is a two step process, and it can be confusing, if youíre not prepared in choosing the best realtor for your situation, and knowing what questions to ask once you have decided upon a listing agent.

When starting your search for a listing agent to sell your home there are a few important considerations and questions that you will need to investigate.

First, consider that you need a realtor that realizes that every seller has a unique situation not only financially, but in many other ways too, such as deadlines for selling, or even times for showing your house to buyers.

You will want to find a listing agent that not only you can work with, but also one that has your best interests at heart, and not just their commission. Itís a working relationship, but itís one in which they are employed by you to sell your home hassle free and for the best price.

Begin your home listing agent search by investigating all of the different realtors in your area. A handy telephone book with agents listing and asking friends and neighbors about any realtors that they may have had experience with are two places to begin.

Remember though that one persons experience doesnít mean that you will have the same exact negative or positive one. After writing down a list of agents take some time to dig a little further by grabbing a local paper with home listings, and look for particulars.

Note how the agents list their available homes. Check to see if youíre impressed by the quality of not only pictures, but how well the information is presented about the homes.

Be wary of any listing that has grammatical errors, or leaves out vital information such as correct contact numbers. Also, look for the realtorís websites, and take note of how well their information is displayed, but also see if the site is easy to navigate to find the necessary information about the homes listed.

There can be nothing worse than a listing that is extremely hard to find. Potential buyers will click away if your homesí listing is buried beneath tons of frustrating non essential information.

Note too the different forms or types of advertising that each realtor has, such as radio, print, magazine, and internet.

The broader informational services your realtor uses the better chances your home will sell according to your schedule and price.

After researching your potential realtors, and deciding on which ones you might like to work with, make an appointment to delve further into their services.

Again, write down pointed questions, and their answers to them. Key questions that most home sellers like to know will have a big affect on their wallets, and if their home sells or not. Make sure answers are effectually given to your satisfaction. Here are 5 important questions that you will need to ask.

What are the listing agentís commissions, and if your house is sold by another agent what are the fees for both?

What is the agents experience, and how much property have they sold in the last year?

Will your house be placed on an MLS (Multiple Listing Service), or multiple MLS systems?

What is the contractual agreement for the length of time you must list with the realtor to sell your home?

What is the listing agentís policy for open houses, and will you receive timely feed back to correct problems?

Finally, when making a decision on an agent to represent you and your home remember to be thorough. If there are any questions that you feel during your interview with a listing agent that suddenly occur to you as important donít be hesitant to ask.

Any confident and qualified agent will be more than happy to openly discuss in a non hurried manner any questions that you might have. Selling your home is an intensely personal one with serious financial matters at stake.

You deserve the detailed and caring attention of a professional. Working with any realtor should be as stress free as possible, and your home should be presented in its best light, so buyers will come knocking at your door.
