Can Your Realtor Negotiate the Best Sale For Your Home?

February 10th 2006

Can Your Realtor Negotiate the Best Sale For Your Home?

Home Sales

When you get ready to sell your home, you want to be sure that the real estate agent who represents your property will do the best possible job. You may need to interview a couple of agents or realties before making a decision on which one should sell your property. Donít hesitate to ask questions or talk to several realtors before choosing one to sell your home.

How do you know if a realtor will do a good job for you? Here are some things to look for when choosing an agent.

1. Look for a good communicator. This person should be able to explain complex terms clearly. He or she should be readily available, and return telephone calls within a reasonable amount of time.


You may even want to ask for the agentís email address so you can shoot him or her a quick question, if the need should arise. If the agent seems uninterested in answering your questions, or is unable to explain things to your satisfaction, chances are this person will not do the best job in representing your house on the real estate market.  

2. Check his or her experience. How long has this person been selling houses? Does he or she like the job? Have any sales awards been reached? Has the person been with the current realtor a year or longer, or does this person seem to have jumped from one job to the next? How knowledgeable is the agent about real estate in general for your area and state? Is his or her license up to date?

3. How interested does the agent seem in your property? Does she ask a lot of questions? Does he spend time carefully assessing your property during a walk-through and a sit-down discussion about the homeís merits and weaknesses? Can this agent offer suggestions about how to enhance your propertyís appearance or value? Does he or she have a sales plan for marketing your home?


Donít be in a hurry to go with the first agent you find in the yellow pages. Get one who knows the business, is easy to talk with, and is interested in selling your property. Youíll be glad you did.
