If you do NOT read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands of dollars when you sell your house…
Home sellers don’t know how exactly to spot a good real estate agent
This is understandable considering that you will only buy and sell a couple of properties in your lifetime. Your property is probably your biggest asset. So, be cautious whom you decide to sell it; one slip-up from a realtor will wipe thousands off your value.
Ask the right questions
Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as “How much do you charge?” or “What’s the house worth?”. While these questions are important, they should only be asked following the agent has told you what they’ll do for you and how they’ll get you the best price.
This report can be your guide to hiring a real estate agent. I’m going to show you how to spot and choose the best agent to sell your home. After all, I believe there’s no one better to sell your home when compared to a highly skilled agent. The problem is that highly skilled agents are hard to find.
WARNING! Don’t settle for second best. Way too many sellers make the error of picking the ‘best of a bad bunch’. You could be better off lacking any agent
Check out your agent
It’s a sad fact, but many people don’t check-out their agent until once they have signed using them – by then it’s too late. Once you sign you’re stuck; you will be locked into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.
The questions and information in this report will give you the knowledge you must keep the power if you are selling a house. After you sign you lose your power.
Agents love to say all of them are different but preliminary research will prove most are the same. It is the ‘cookie cutter’ approach when it comes to selling your house – every property comes the same way.
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 an agent 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 have given the guide to numerous home sellers. This report contains most of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does a good agent look like?
Most agents will undoubtedly be well dressed, on time, and prepared. However the best real estate agents will 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 house sold why do you want a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer
Sometimes the answer to 1 good question will provide you with the confidence it is advisable to hire the best agent to market your house. Good questions do the hard work for you. Before you jump in and start grilling real estate agents, take a step back.
Put your home buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the poor agents. Why bother interviewing an agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? 94401 Start with an email. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, then you have just saved yourself needing to interview 5 agents. Include your phone number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a typical response? An agent who follows up with a call includes a much better potential for ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a typical reply.
