Asking the right questions is critical.

Make sure you're asking these questions before you select an agent to list your home

  • What kind of website and social media exposure will you provide?
  • Where will my listing be posted?
  • How many sites will my listing be syndicated to?
  • Will you advertise the open house on all syndicated sites?
  • Will you create full color ads for major newspapers?
  • How will you publicize an open house for my property?
  • Will you go door-to-door to inform neighbors about the open house?
  • Do you have a comprehensive, step-by-step marketing plan for selling my property?
  • Can you show me examples of the photography and videos you provide?
  • How will you work with me to market my home in a presentable and appealing fashion to buyers?

  • What is your role in regard to the home appraisal?
  • What is the process for agents submitting offers to you?
  • How should we respond if we get unsatisfactory offers, or no offers at all?

  • What will be your ongoing consultation role through completion of the sale – “until the check clears?”
  • What happens if the appraisal comes in low?
