- Ask us for comparable listings in the neighborhood of your property – If an agent you’re interviewing doesn’t have a list of comparable homes that have sold in your neighborhood on hand, that’s a huge red flag as this becomes the pillar for determining your home’s value and deciding upon an asking price. A well-rounded comparative market analysis will show current listings and homes sold in the past three to six months that are similar to yours in size and amenities.
- Ask us “What do you think my home is worth and why?” We will walk through your home and complete an analysis to crunch numbers against the comps and provide you with an asking price that we feel is aligned with market conditions and your goals. It’s important to have an agent that will support your decisions but is also willing to tell you like it is. The right agent will challenge your idea and perception of an inflated market value and try to set expectations.
- Ask us “What does your marketing plan for my home include?” Good real estate agent have a robust plan to promote listings to the correct pool of buyers. Ask for examples of marketing materials and scope out agent websites to see how listings are promoted.
