Home sellers don’t know how to spot a good agent

This is understandable considering that you will only trade one or two properties in your lifetime. Your home is probably your biggest asset. So, be careful whom you choose to sell it; one slip-up from an agent will wipe thousands off your selling price.

Ask the right questions

Many home sellers ask the WRONG questions when they interview a realtor. They ask questions such as “How much do you charge?” or “What’s my house worth?”. While these questions are important, they should only be asked following the agent has told you what they’ll do for you personally and how they’ll get you the best price.

In 2006 Neil Jenman (my father) was asked to supply a list of questions, comments, and hints to help home sellers choose an agent for a Television show he was hosting. He called his list of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. Over the last few years I’ve given the guide to numerous home sellers. This report contains many of the questions and comments in his original guide.

What does a good agent look like?

Most agents will be well dressed, on time, and prepared. But the best real estate agents would be the ones who put your interests first. They will offer solutions that suit you first, not them.

Agents who require money to advertise your home should rarely be hired. After all, if advertising was the only real reason your house sold why do you need a real estate agent?

MYSTERY SHOP

Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Use the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the indegent agents. Why bother interviewing an agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? Start with an email. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.

If you distribute 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. Only if 5 reply, you then have just saved yourself having to interview 5 agents.

An agent who follows up with a call includes a much better potential for ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a standard reply.
