Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip of the Week: Questions to Ask a Realtor

Here are some important questions to ask a Realtor when considering whether to hire them to sell your home or help you find a home to buy:

How long have you been in the business?  Experience is key when hiring a Realtor, especially in a highly specialized market.  Contacts made through the years are invaluable and can cut time on the market,  Is the Realtor you want experienced enough?

What’s your best marketing plan for my needs?  In other words, how will you sell my home?  Will there be a multi-prong approach  and are there other methods, such as mail outs or websites, you’ll use?

Do you have references?  Ask former clients/customers what the Realtor was like, how they handled details and how their team worked together.  Nothing will sell a house faster than a coordinated effort by a team.

What haven’t I asked you that I need to know?  There will always be questions and how your future Realtor answers them will tell you a lot.  You always want a Realtor who hears you, addresses your concerns and deals head on with any questions you may have.
