One should be careful not to get stuck with an estate agent who is not driven to get the sale finalized.

In the majority of businesses, 20% of the salespeople generate 80% of the sales.

One should be careful not to get stuck with an estate agent who is not driven to get the sale finalized.

So, how does one select a good estate agent?

By asking great questions, such as:

What is your track record of sales? How long does it take to sell a property in today’s market? Can you show me some referrals or testimonials? What is the average difference between the first listing price of a home and the final selling price? Will you be listing my property on Internet portals like Property24? Do you have your own website? Is it attractive and up-to-date? Does it attract lots of potential buyers? What do they suggest you do to prepare your home for a brisk sale at the best price? Do they use social media marketing, such as Facebook, YouTube and Instagram? These are wonderful marketing tools that help an agent to promote properties for sale.

Deciding on the right price for your home is the most important thing you can do to sell your house quickly. Your agent will be able to advise you here. The agent’s negotiating skills are also critical.

Select an estate agent who cares more about your pocket than theirs.

These are some of the questions you can ask your estate agent before listing your property with them.

After all, your home is probably your most valuable asset.
