Four Important Questions to Ask When Selling Your Home
- What is the communication plan? You will be in close contact with an agent throughout the sale, and you want to ensure that your agent is always able to speak with you. Communication is key in this business, and if there is a disruption it can spell bad news for a sale.
- Do you have an active agent or a passive one? Lots of agents can present great strategies to sell your home, but not all of them act these plans out. Make sure your agent has a proven track record that you can rely on. They should be finding leads for you, not just putting your home on the MLS and hope that it sells.
- Does your agent have experience? When selling in a competitive market such as the one in Dayton, you’re really going to need an experienced real estate agent. Everyone has to start somewhere, so if you’re agent is relatively green, be sure that they can at least rely on the resources of another experienced agent if they need to.
- Does your agent have the right tools to sell your home? Currently only 42% of homes that go on the market are actually selling, so you need to ensure that your agent has the right tools and systems in place to capture buyers and get them to purchase your home. Your agent needs a lead-generation system, a good marketing strategy, and a plethora of other resources in order to sell your home quickly and efficiently.
