Thinking of Selling…How do you find the right Realtor?

Q. How do I find a Real Estate agent to sell my house?

A. Selling Real Estate is a matter of Marketing.  So, the question is:  Who best to expose your property to the largest audience?  Where do you start?  The first place you should look is close to home.  Are any of your friends Realtors?  (They may be friends, but they’re also professionals.)  No?  Then who helped your friend/family co-worker sell their house?  A referral is probably the best start you can give yourself.

Then, have a list of questions ready to ask.  Include:  How close to list price do their properties sell for?  In what period of time?  And be sure to ask to see their marketing plan.

Most importantly, get motivated!  A good Realtor will work hard for you and want to sell- in other words, if you are motivated to price your house right, cooperate with your agent and do what is necessary, they will also be willing to do whatever it takes.

Perhaps the single most important thing you can do for yourself is ask for references- and be sure to speak with them.  Then, trust your gut instinct.  If you interview someone that you feel good about and comfortable with, go with that person – you are probably right.
