Help Me Sell My Apartment
Help me sell my apartment. Help me sell my house. Help me sell my land. These are the requests of property owners who choose to hire real estate agents. Having a real estate agent to represent you has its advantages – he has the time, the expertise, and the access to information required in the process. But how will you choose an agent? There are hundreds of real estate agents in the market and all of them the same promise, that is, choosing them will help you close the deal.
Before you decide to enter into an agreement with a certain agent, conduct a personal interview and weigh down the agent’s responses to determine his worth. Ask questions during the interview which will help you choose the right agent.
How long have you been working as an agent? An agent is considered as ‘experienced’ if he is doing his job for at least 2 years. Be wary of agents who are not experienced unless they belong to a much larger team of experienced professionals.
How many listings do you have? This is a tricky question and any answer to this should be carefully explained. An agent who carries multiple listings should prompt you to ask whether he can still allocate time for your property should you wish to hire him. Alternatively, if an agent has no current listing, you should ask him why. It could mean that no one hires him or he just sold his listings before your interview.
Do you carry listings comparable to mine? If the agent answers yes, there are two possibilities to consider. First, you will be competing with his other listings. Second, it will be easier for the agent to push buyers in your way.
