Putting your home on the market can be a stressful experience. You might not be keen in developing an asking price or you’re not sure which part of your home you should feature most prominently.
This is where a listing agent comes in – as long as you hire one with the skill and expertise needed to achieve your specific selling goals. To ensure you’ve come across a top notch listing agent, ask them the following three questions.
How much experience do you have as a real estate agent?
A minimum of four years in the field is typically the threshold for a committed agent with a good sense of the market. Not only do you want them to have developed the legal skills that come with listing a home, but the people skills as they apply to your market, as well.
What are some of the listings you have previously sold and what is the average time it took you to do so?
An agent with a good track record in your neighborhood and your price range is ideal. In essence, this means they have experience in selling the product you are offering. At Leslie Clarke Homes, you can view a complete list of homes we have sold in the Westport area and at what price range.
Will you stage my home or will you have someone else do so?
Home staging could make all the difference when it comes to how successful you are in selling your home. At Leslie Clarke Homes we will stage a home by working with your furniture, accessories and bring in extra accessories if needed. If the property requires a full staging, however, we will introduce you to a professional staging firm and manage the process.
These are just three important questions out of the many you should be asking before you hire a listing agent. Find a complete list here »
