What do you need to look for in a listing agent?

Congratulations, you have decided to make the big move and sell your home! To get started, you will likely start out with two the next two steps – figuring out where to start decluttering and beginning the process of finding a listing agent.

The job of the listing agent is to relieve the burden of selling and market your home so it sells for the best price possible; however, sometimes finding the right person to work with can be overwhelming in itself especially if this is your first time selling a home. So, here are a couple of tips to help make the agent selection process smoother:

  1. You can interview multiple agents. You don’t have to pick the first agent you meet with; it is okay to interview others.
  2. Read their reviews. There is a good chance you started on Google to find the agent you are interviewing anyway; take a quick second to check out their reviews and website. This will give you a better idea of who you are meeting with.
  3. Ask about marketing. It’s easy to focus on price and comparable homes, because in the end, your home is your biggest investment, but make sure they share their marketing plan with you. What are they going to do to make sure you have the best shot at getting the price you want?
  4. Will they be doing professional photography? Photos are every buyer’s very first impression of the home. This is a very important question to ask.
  5. When it comes to price, a lot of times you will find you already have an idea of what you think your home is worth before the Realtor walks through the door, and that’s okay. However, the comparable homes that have sold already are very important when it comes to what the home can sell for, so make sure you listen to the research the Realtor has done and share any upgrades that you have made to the property. You may be able to sell your home for even more than you originally thought!
  6. Go with your gut! This is the person that you will be working closely with, likely for at least a month or two. If you don’t feel like your personalities are meshing or you aren’t feeling confident about things, go back to point #1 and interview someone else.

Picking the right listing agent is probably the most important thing you can do when selling a home. These tips can help you ensure you are working with the agent that is best fit for you and your home.

Get the most out of your showing experience!

You’ve been looking online and preparing to buy and now it’s finally time for you to start looking at homes in person! This should be exciting, but it is a big life decision and can easily become overwhelming. Here are a couple of things to do to help get the most out of your showings.

  1. Review details ahead of time. Your agent will work with you, but if you have important questions, like how old the roof is, get these questions answered before you go so you feel completely prepared. This will leave less opportunity to be disappointed when you get there!


  1. Take notes! When you have been looking at homes all weekend it is easy for them to start blending together. Mark down your favorites, so you can go back and review things!


  1. Drive around! You found your favorite home and you are thinking of putting in an offer…if you have time, go back and drive around the area. See where your closest grocery store is, get to know your potential new hometown.


  1. Test your commute. Take a test drive to your office or check out the drive time feature on your phone maps. The home you love may be a little farther away, but if there is a more pleasant path to take (No highway for example) you may prefer this!


  1. Follow your gut! Remember, we can talk details and color and location all day long, but when you feel like deep down that is the home for you, that’s usually the right one!
