Hiring a Real Estate Agent to Sell Your Home? Make Sure to Ask These Questions

Hiring the right real estate agent is one of the most important parts of the home selling process.

But how, exactly, do you ensure that the agent you hire is the right agent for the job?

recent video from realtor.com outlined the key questions you should ask to ensure you find the right listing agent for your home, including:

  • What are your credentials? Before you agree to work with an agent, you want to know what their credentials are. Make sure to ask them about their experience—including whether they’re licensed, how long they’ve been a real estate agent, and if they have any special experience or credentials that might support your home sale.
  • Do you specialize in this neighborhood? Working with an agent who knows the ins and outs of your neighborhood can be a major benefit during the home sale process. Before you decide on an agent, make sure to ask if they have experience working in your neighborhood. (Bonus points if they live there!)
  • Whom will I be working with? Some agents work alone, while others work in teams—and some sellers like to work with a single point of contact, while others like a team of agents in their corner. Before you decide on a listing agent, be sure to ask whom you’ll be working with—and that it aligns with your preferences.
