Home sellers don’t know how to spot a good agent

This is understandable when you consider that you will only trade one or two properties in your lifetime. Your property is probably your biggest asset. So, be careful whom you choose to sell it; one slip-up from a realtor will wipe thousands off your value.

Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as “How much can you charge?” or “What’s the house worth?”. estate agents While these questions are essential, they ought to only be asked after the agent has told you what they’ll do for you and how they’ll get you the best price.

What to look for whenever choosing an agent

In 2006 Neil Jenman (my father) was asked to supply a list of questions, comments, and hints to greatly help home sellers choose a realtor for a TV show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. During the last few years I’ve given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains a lot of the questions and comments in his original guide.

What does an excellent agent look like?

Most agents will undoubtedly be well dressed, promptly, and prepared. However the best real estate agents could be the ones who put your interests first. They’ll offer solutions that suit you first, not them.

Agents who ask for money to advertise your house should rarely be hired. In the end, if advertising was the only real reason your home sold why do you want a real estate agent?

Questions are the answer

Sometimes the answer to one good question gives you the confidence you must hire the best agent to market your house. Good questions do the hard work for you personally. Before you jump in and begin grilling real estate agents, take a step back.

Put your home buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…

MYSTERY SHOP

Department stores do it, so why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the poor agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? Start with a contact. Approximately half of most buyer enquiry arrives via email.

If you send out 10 emails to 10 local realtors, I can almost guarantee that you will 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 has a much better chance of ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a standard reply.
