What You Do Not Need To Hear From Your Listing Agent

    HouseScreeniPad

    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:

    • Set the market value on possibly the largest asset your family owns (your home)
    • Set the time schedule for the successful liquidation of that asset
    • 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 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.

    Look for someone with the ‘heart of a teacher’ 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.

    Not someone only interested in trying to sell you on how great they are.

    You have many agents from which to choose.

    Pick one that wants to understand your life transition.
