Ten Questions a Seller Should Ask an Agent Before Listing

Real Estate Agent with The Kelly Group Real Estate

1. Why should I list my property with YOU?

2. What do you think my property will sell for and Why?

3. What are the “Pros” and “Cons” of my property?

4. What changes/improvements should I make to my house?

5. What are your specific negotiation strategies?

6. How many properties have you listed in the last 12 months?

7. Specifically, how will you market my home?

8. Do you have a Team or are you a Solo Agent? Your team consists of…

9. How many showings should I expect to average per week?

10. Other than yourself, who would you recommend I list my home with and why?


Any good Realtor should be able to answer these questions with certainty over the phone or in person. If they appear evasive, incapable or unwilling in discussing these questions, my advice is to call a different top agent. By contacting The Kelly Group, we will not only answer these question honestly, but we can sell your property for the best price in the shortest amount of time!

Great questions every seller should keep in mind when interviewing agents to sell their house.  Another question I would ask is How often will you be communicating with me?

Excellent point Joan Dickie! I believe you are right as one of the most common complaints an agent is likely face is a misunderstanding of communication expectations. Are you available truly 24/7 and should you be? Every agents' dilemma
