If you do NOT read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands of dollars when you sell your house…
Home sellers don’t know how to spot a good agent
This is understandable when you consider that you will only buy and sell one or two properties in your lifetime. Your property is probably your biggest asset. So, be cautious whom you decide to sell it; one slip-up from an agent will wipe thousands off your value.
Ask the right questions
Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as for example “How much do you charge?” or “What’s my house worth?”. While these questions are important, they ought to only be asked following the agent has told you what they’ll do for you and how they’ll get you the best price.
This report is your guide to hiring an agent. I’m going to demonstrate how to spot and select the best agent to market your home. After all, I really believe there’s no one better to sell your home when compared to a highly skilled agent. The problem is that highly skilled agents are difficult to find.
WARNING! Don’t accept second best. Too many sellers make the error of picking the ‘best of a negative bunch’. You will be better off lacking any agent
Check out your agent
It is a sad fact, but lots of people don’t check-out their agent until after they have signed using them – at that time it’s too late. After you sign you’re stuck; you could be locked into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.
The questions and information in this report gives you the knowledge you need to keep the power if you are selling a house. Once you sign you lose your power.
Agents love to say all of them are different but preliminary research will prove most are the same. It is the ‘cookie cutter’ approach when it comes to selling your home – every property is sold the same way.
What to look for whenever choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my father) was asked to provide a summary of questions, comments, and hints to help home sellers choose a realtor for a Television show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. During the last few years I have given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains lots of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does a good agent look like?
Most agents will undoubtedly be well dressed, promptly, and prepared. But the best real estate agents is definitely the ones who put your interests first. new roof ‘ll offer solutions that suit you first, not them.
Agents who require money to advertise your house should rarely be hired. After all, if advertising was the only real reason your home sold why do you need a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer
Sometimes the answer to one good question offers you the confidence you should hire the best agent to sell your home. Good questions do the effort for you. Before you jump in and start grilling real estate agents, take a step back.
Put your home buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the indegent agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to come back buyer’s calls? Start with an email. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local realtors, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, you then have just saved yourself having to interview 5 agents. Include your phone number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a standard response? A realtor who follows up with a call includes a much better chance of ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a standard reply.
