Summer can be an excellent time to sell a house, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be easier. Hiring a qualified real estate agent can really make a difference. Everyone is unique, so different agents may be better suited for you and your house. Even within the same company, you’ll find a variety of agents, so talk with a few and ask plenty of questions.
What Type of Questions Should You Ask?
There are three main topics you should focus on:
- Pricing: Ask them what methods they use to settle on a price for a new listing.
- Duration: Figure out how long their listings usually stay on the market for before selling.
Marketing: Question them about their marketing strategies and see which they find the most successful.
