Do REAL ESTATE AGENT Better Than Barack Obama
If you do NOT read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands of dollars when you sell your home…
Home sellers don’t know how to spot a good agent
This is understandable when you consider that you will only buy and sell one or two properties in your lifetime. Your home 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 selling price.
Ask the right questions
Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as for example “How much can you charge?” or “What’s my house worth?”. While these questions are essential, they should only be asked following the agent has told you what they’ll do for you personally and how they’ll get you the best price.
This report is your guide to hiring an agent. I’m going to demonstrate how to spot and choose the best agent to sell your home. After all, I really believe there’s no one better to sell your home when compared to a highly skilled agent. The thing is that highly skilled agents are difficult to find.
. WARNING! Don’t accept second best. Too many sellers make the mistake of picking the ‘best of a negative bunch’. You could be better off without an agent
Check out your agent
It’s a sad fact, but many people don’t check-out their agent until after they have signed using them – at that time it’s too late. Once you sign you’re stuck; you could be locked right into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.
The questions and information in this report gives you the knowledge it is advisable to keep the power when you’re 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’s the ‘cookie cutter’ approach when it comes to selling your home – every property is sold the same way.
What to look for when choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my Dad) was asked to supply a summary of questions, comments, and hints to greatly help home sellers choose a realtor for a Television 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 many home sellers. This report contains many of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does a good agent look like?
Most agents will undoubtedly be well dressed, promptly, 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 home should rarely be hired. In the end, if advertising was the only reason your house sold why do you want a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer
Sometimes the answer to 1 good question offers you the confidence it is advisable to hire the best agent to sell your house. Good questions do the hard work for you personally. Before you jump in and start grilling real estate agents, have 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 a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to come back buyer’s calls? Start with a contact. Approximately half of most buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local realtors, I can almost guarantee that you will 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? A realtor who follows up with a call includes a much better chance of ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a standard reply.
