Its imperative to hire a great real estate agent when listing your home because you want to know that you can trust and rely on them dealing with your biggest investment. When looking for this qualified listing agent you should be asking hard hitting questions to make sure they’re the best real estate agent for you. Custom Fit Real Estate‘s Realtor, Yesenia Nunez talks about the top 3 questions we believe you should be asking your potential listing agent.
Top 3 Questions
How Much and How Fast?
Today’s seller’s market already sets the tone for how quickly your house can sell. A good agent will not only make sure your house sells fast, but that you get multiple offers at top dollar as well. According to Zillow in 2021, “the average length of time an American house sits on the market is 25 days.” At Custom Fit Real Estate, our MLS records report that our current under contract listings have an average of 9.5 days on the market! This further validates that inventory is so low and that buyers are chomping at the bits to get any available houses on the market.
This may give you the impression that you don’t need a real estate agent to sell your home because you’ll have interest in your home either way, however, this would be a bad idea. You still need an expert in real estate to make sure you’re not getting into poor contracts and agreements. You want to hire a listing agent to handle these transactions because this is your biggest investment. Making accidents or wrong choices that could be avoided with a professional agent is not a lesson you want to learn the hard way. Get yourself an agent today and make sure they can do everything in their power to get you the highest offers on your home in a quick manner.
Will There Be Professional Photography and Marketing?
Getting professional photos of your home makes such a big difference and presents your home in a clean and professional manner. If your agent is marketing your home well, you are guaranteed to drum up more interest in your listing. Our Custom Fit Real Estate Group agents have the advantage of our Custom Fit Media company to create marketing pieces for their clients’ homes to utilize on multiple social media platforms so that the reach of potential buyers can expand beyond the boundaries of the Greater Las Vegas Valley.
Your listing photos can set the emotional attachment that buyers will develop when looking at your home. For Example, twilight photos (photos taken at sunset) could be taken to set the mood and enhance features like a pool and backyard.
What Type of Value Can You Provide Me?
If your agent can’t immediately tell you the value they can bring you, find a new agent! A good agent will not hesitate when they have your best interests in mind. According thebalancecmb.com buyers and sellers of real estate value these traits the most from their agents:
- Honesty and integrity
- Knowledge of purchase process
- Knowledge of real estate market
- Communication skills
- Negotiation skills
It’s good to ask your potential agent what value can they provide you as well as touch on these above points to see if they’re a right fit for you!
