Red Flags for Choosing a Real Estate Agent

Real estate agent

Before being sold on a house, you should find a real estate agent who is right for you.

Choosing a real estate agent may seem like an easy process. Real estate agents seem to be everywhere when you are thinking about selling a home. But how do you choose one that will be the best for your real estate transaction? Let’s take a look at some red flags you should watch for when choosing a real estate agent.

Suggests the Highest Price

It is normal for a seller to get a bunch of opinions when selling their home. In fact, many experts advise you to get at least three listing presentations. One of the best ways to judge if a real estate agent is right for you is to ask them how much they would suggest listing your home for. All of these agents are looking at the same data so the suggested price should be similar. If a real estate agent comes back with a price way over the others, it could be a sign they do not known what they are doing. Many homes that a priced too high tend to sit on the market and ultimately sell for less as you reduce the price. Look for an agent who will price the home correctly.

Part Time Agents

When choosing an agent, you should choose one that is actively following the market every day. Choosing a part time agent could mean you lose out of potential buyers if the agent is not available to show your home.

Doesn’t Deal with Your Type of Property

If you are selling an individual house or a condominium, it is important to choose a real estate agent who deals with that kind of property. Choosing an agent to sell your condo when they have never worked with that kind of property before can prove challenging. Work with an agent who specializes in that type of property to get the best results.

When choosing a real estate agent, it is important to choose someone who specializes in helping people in your situation. For more information on choosing a real estate agent with a great reputation, call Simply Referable today!
