Looking to sell your Sacramento home but don’t know where to turn. Here are essential questions you should ask. I’ve also included a free report 7 Costly Mistakes Sellers Make When Selling Their Home. Its yours free just for stopping by today.
The National Association of Realtors state that as a rule 75% of the time sellers choose the first Realtor they talk to but only 69% said they would recommend the agent they used to someone else. Yikes that a pretty big disconnect. The thing with Realtors is you don’t know you have a bad fit until it’s too late. Here are some suggestions to avoid falling into that mistake.
We know that buyers and sellers work with people they know like and trust. Even if the agent came highly recommended to you take the time to interview them and at least one if not two other agents. This is for many the biggest financial undertaking you will ever make. Spend the time upfront to make sure it’s a good fit for all.
Here are some questions to ask:
How long have you been in Real Estate and how many homes do you sell each year?
The last thing you want to be is someone’s first experience in helping someone buy or sell a home. This is a business where experience counts
What is your specific marketing strategy for my home?
Hope and wish is not a strategy. Your agent should be showing you their full marketing plan up front without you having to ask.
How long do you expect my home to take to sell and what’s plan B if it doesn’t?
We like to stay focused on plan A so we don’t get distracted by plan B, C D etc. We have them but our plan is to sell your home within a reason able amount of time and are pretty upfront about that. Yes we have back up plans and can share them but plan A is always our primary focus.
What should I expect from you as far as communication?
Nationally the number one complaint consumers have about Realtors is they list their home and never hear back from the agent. Nail that piece don up front.
Are your services guaranteed?
Ours are. This is a partnership for both you and the Realtor. Your Realtor should be willing to stand by their word and back what they say with actions.
So what is the worst way to hire and agent?
NEVER hire the agent with who gives you the highest estimated list price and or the lowest commission. It’s easy to over inflate a list price to get the business only to beat you down on the price later. It takes real courage to risk not getting the listing but maintain our integrity. Same goes for commission. Ask yourself. If an agent is so willing to give up their pay, how quickly will they be willing to give up your hard earned equity? Think about it… I hope this all helps.
