5 Critical questions to ask when choosing Real Estate Agent

The markets have turned from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market, so today it’s critical to undertake some detailed research as to the best method and best agent to sell your home, however, there are few important things to consider if you want to be fully prepared for the selling process.

You want the best person in the business representing you and your property. Make sure you interview at least three agents — maybe even more if there is a wide range to choose from in your area — before you decide on which one to go with.

Rather than let them give you a real estate spiel on how well they connect with buyers, people, the world in general, make sure you have a list of questions to sort the talkers from the top negotiators.

Always ask them what their style of negotiation is, what they consider to be at fault with your property and how they would overcome those flaws when talking to buyers.
