10 Questions to Ask a Realtor Before You Sign A Contract

Thinking of selling your home?  Well, it is most important that you have a plan before you think of hiring a professional for the job toSell a Home sell your home.  While there are a number of real estate agents who can sell a home, the number of those that can sell your home as fast as you like at the most money possible and are a match to your personality, might be a smaller number than the first.  Seeing that selling a home can be a stressful endeavor, it might save you time, money and headaches down the road if you take the initiative to interview agents prior to signing a listing agreement.

  2. Do you have a personal assistant, team or staff to handle different parts of the transaction?
  3. Do you have a website that will list my home?
  4. How will you keep in contact with me during the selling process, and how often?
  5. What do you do that other agents don't that ensures I'm getting top dollar for my home?

Great tips! A lot of sellers want to interview multiple agents, but aren't sure which questions they should ask.
