Selling your home can be stressful, and it’s so important to find an agent whom you not only you click with, but more importantly someone who you can trust.

If you are thinking about selling your home, I’d like for you to know a few things that you should look for before hiring a real estate professional.

The two most important things that you want from selling your home is getting the greatest return on your your investment and finding the most qualified buyer!

So how do you exactly find the best listing agent to help you accomplish this goal?

1. Know the agent: The president of NAR, Tom Salomone says, “Word-of-mouth referrals are great, but not everyone who sends a name your way has actually used the person to sell a home.” We recommend that you ask the person who’s doing the referring if he or she worked with the agent!

2.Look online: Look at online sources of the productivity and education of the agent. Research credentials online and make sure agents you’re considering are licensed to practice in your state.

3. Ask the right questions: Asking the right questions to your agent is very important. Have they ever sold a home like mine before? What are the steps they take in determining your homes value? What is your future marketing plan for listing my home? Are you a full-time or part time agent?

Once we’ve met, you’ll likely sign a listing agreement in which you agree to a certain terms of service at a set commission rate. Typically, contracts range from 90 to 120 days. We want you to keep in mind that although that this timeline could be shorter or longer, it’s all based on certain local/market conditions.
