This list might make it seem simple enough when selling a home, but the truth is that you need an experienced agent with you every step of the way.
When evaluating and interviewing potential real estate agents, you should be asking yourself if their services fit your needs. Your agent should be able to know how to correctly price your house, this process is both a skill and a science. It is probably the most important thing a real estate agent can do for you.
A top agent will use science, in the form of relevant comparable recent sales, to set a fair price for your home. She’ll use her experience, intuition and local market knowledge to tweak that price, and make sure that it’s competitive.
When you find the right agent, they are going to be with you not just for this home sale, but for your future needs as well. That is why you owe it to yourself to do your research ahead of time. Be sure to find someone who understands you and your needs.
