Tips For Choosing a Listing Broker or Realtor

Choosing the right realtor to list your property can be the most important decision in the sale of you home.   Realtors all have different skills, experience and specialty areas.

Your realtor will

  • Help you determine your asking price
  • promote your property
  • Negotiate with Buyers
  • Arrange for Escrow and Closing Processes.
  • Much more

It is important to take a number of factors into consideration when choosing a listing agent.  The following list is presented by Garth Schultheis Prudential Triple S Realty to assist home sellers in finding a realtor who you will serve your needs and be compatible with your personality, while delivering a smooth transaction and the best possible sales price.

When choosing the right listing agent you should probably interview a number of agents starting with these questions:

  • What type of Real Estate does the agent specialize in?
  • What type of Client does the agent specialize in?
  • Do they have a proven track record?
    Does their office have the technology in place to find the unique property you seek?
    Does the realtor have the time to follow thru with the many details of your real estate transaction?
  • Is the agent a part-timer or a dedicated full time professional?
  • What can you do to get top price for your home?
  • What are cost effective improvements to increase the value of your property.
  • Besides listing your property in the MLS what does the Realtor intend to do to market your property?

Selecting a realtor in the geographical location that you want to invest in is key for knowledge of the market trends in that particular area.
