Questions to Ask Your Potential Listing Agent

Choosing a Realtor can be extremely stressful. As a seller, you should select the person or team that can sell your home for the best price in the shortest amount of time with as little stress as possible!

When hiring an agent to help you sell your home, it’s important to ask more questions than simply, “how much can I get for my house?” When interviewing agents, assess their knowledge, expertise, and connections with the following questions:

  • How familiar are you with my neighborhood?
  • How many homes have you sold in this neighborhood? To follow up on this question, ask how many homes they’ve sold in your city.
  • Are you currently working with buyers that might be interested in my home?
  • Can you describe your listing process and what to expect when selling our home from beginning to end?
  • What is your team’s track record for list-to-sale ratios for previous sales?
  • How much do you think my home is worth?
  • How does that value compare to the sale prices for homes sold in the previous 3-6 months?
  • What are the average days on the market for recent listings, both in my neighborhood and for other homes you’ve listed?
  • How long do you think it will take to get an offer on my home?
  • What would your previous clients say about you?

By asking these questions, you can gauge what experience the agent has listing and selling similar properties. You want to hire an agent who can help you determine an appropriate list price so you receive a reasonable contract in the shortest time possible. Our team often gets asked these questions and we’d love the opportunity to work with you to sell your home.
