When considering selling your home, the first important decision you’ll make is choosing a realtor. Here are a few important factors to consider:
- Background and experience: obviously background, education, and experience are important but don’t overlook someone relatively new to real estate. A good support team is vital, no matter the level of experience.
- Marketing strategy: It’s important to discuss the overall strategy for marketing your home. Ask many, many questions.
- References and testimonials: Don’t be afraid to ask for references and testimonials, which are a great way to assess the realtor’s strengths. Also, try to get an understanding of how many clients they’re currently representing: too many and they might not have enough time for you; too few and there might a reason there as well.
