Setting a Price

Choosing your selling agentChoosing Your Selling Agent at Jennic Property

Need help with choosing a selling agent? We're here to help.

Are you ready to sell your home? If you've decided to have a real estate agent assist you in this process, the information below provides valuable insight to help you with the important process of selecting an agent....

It is important to remember that good communication is a two-way street. You need to be open and honest with an agent to save both you and them time and effort. ...

The final criteria for an expert agent is their ability to use technology to help you with your home sale. An expert agent will be able to utilize electronic multiple listing services to gather information on housing trends for you. ...

A key piece to having an expert agent work for you is integrity. How honest is an agent in dealing with you? If an agent convinces you to list with them by saying they can get you more money on the sale of your home but they really can't, they are wasting your time.

So how do you determine if an agent is an expert, and how do you know if they are honest? You never know for sure but there are some signs to check for. Many people ask friends or family members for recommendations on an agent. 

Here are some points we recommend considering when choosing your agent:

Is the agent an expert in the geographical area which you are selling?

How long has him/her been in the real estate business and how long with their current company?

Find out how many homes they have listed in the area in which you are seeking to buy and find out how long it took for each of those homes to sell and close.

Ask for references of clients they have serviced in the last 6 months and then actually call those references (get at least three references). Ask those references how effective was the agent at servicing them. Would they use the agent again?
