When you’re buying or selling a home, it makes sense to talk to a Realtor® before you hire one. After all, you need to know that your agent really understands your needs – and that he or she will work hard to help you get the right home or sell your home quickly (and at the right price).
So what should you ask when you’re interviewing a Realtor?
3 Must-Ask Questions for Interviewing a Realtor
How long have you been in real estate?
While there’s nothing to say that a newer agent won’t provide you with the best possible service, it’s important that you look for a Realtor who has plenty of experience in your market. Experienced agents know the market’s highs and lows, what properties are really worth, and everything that’s important to you as a buyer or seller vecause they have boots-on-ground experience.
Can you provide references?
Great agents have happy clients who are willing to talk. If an agent doesn’t have any testimonials, you may want to keep searching.
What separates you from your competition?
The truth is that not all Realtors are created equal. Some go above and beyond for their clients – and that’s what you want when you hire a real estate professional.
When you’re interviewing potential agents, this answer can tell you everything you need to know.
