When talking to a real estate agent about selling your home, there are several questions you’ll want to ask. And certainly to hire the right professional for you. You will want to get a good understanding of whether the realtor can be helpful in getting your house sold.
1. How Did You Come to the Listing Price?
Pricing your home accurately is one of the most important steps in the whole process. It’s vital to work with a realtor who has a good understanding of the recent market in your area.
It’s a good idea to ask for a CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). Beware of any realtors that only use Zillow or some other computer-generated home value tool. An experienced realtor will refer to the current pool of comparable homes on the market, the recent market data, and your home’s condition and amenities in giving you an answer.
