When trying to sell your house there can be a lot of pressure and excitement to get your home sold fast. With that said, most people only have two questions to ask their agents before selling their home: How much should they list their house for and how long should they expect to have their house on the market. But selling a house can be a much bigger endeavor than most people imagine. The best course of action to take before putting your house on the market is to interview your potential agent and find out if they have the most to offer.
Here is a list of 4 questions that you should be asking your real estate agent before selling your home
1) How Will My Home Be Marketed?
This may go without saying, but houses only sell when potential buyers are aware that they have been put on the market. It’s always a good idea to ask your agent how they plan on marketing your home. See if they plan on putting your house on multiple websites, newspapers or magazines, or if they have a social media platform that they use to showcase their listings. Getting your house to the attention several different potential buyers will help ensure that you get plenty of offers in a timely manner.
2) Do They Have Knowledge of My Community?
An agent that has a strong understanding of the area that your house is in will be better able to answer questions from potential buyers about what makes that community worth living in, which in turn could help your house sell faster.
3) What is Your Experience?
Not having decades of experience at selling houses doesn’t necessarily mean that your agent isn’t good at what he or she does, but it is a good idea to make sure that they have some experience with a sell from beginning to close in order to ensure that selling your house is a smooth experience.
4) Can You Provide a CMA?
CMA stands for comparative market analysis. Basically, it is a list that informs you what other homes in your area have recently sold for. This is a good way to see what other homes that are similar to yours are selling for so that you can make sure that you get the best price for your home.
