It takes a knowledgeable, dedicated person to assist you in marketing your home to sell it quickly and for top dollar. There are 20 CRITICAL QUESTIONS you should be asking any Realtor before hiring them to list your beautiful home. Hiring the wrong agent to assist you could cost not just valuable time, but MONEY IN YOUR POCKET! This is your biggest investment, and sadly, not all agents are willing to invest their time and $$$ to insure you sell quickly and for top dollar. Find out not only what questions you should be asking, but what the exact answers should be, why, and what those answers could mean to your bottom line.
If you are not asking these questions prior to hiring an agent to help you sell your home, it could be one of the biggest mistakes of your life!
Question 1: Do you use a professional photographer?
Great photos are what stop buyers in their tracks online and make them look at your home. I don't care how great of a camera an agent’s cell phone has, nothing beats the eye of a professional photographer!
Question 2: Will my home have a high quality virtual tour? Can you show me an example?
A high quality immersive virtual tour will make buyers spend even more time looking at your home. The longer they look, the better chance they will want to see it in person and make an offer!
Question 3: Do you have an enhanced presence on Realtor.com, Zillow & Trulia?
This is where most buyers start their search. Without an enhanced presence your home will be at the bottom of the list of available homes in the area. Buyers with questions about your home will be directed to other Realtors that might not have ever stepped foot in your home instead of the agent you hired!
