Selling your home inÂ New Port Richey FloridaÂ or Port Richey Florida may seem like a stressful and dauntingtask. Â There is no need to be stressed or overwhelmed by the idea of selling your home in New Port Richey Florida when you use the services of a professional. Â You will need to interview at least 3 real estate agents to find someone who will be a good fit for you.
Here are a few questions to ask when interviewing professionals:
- How many homes do you have listed currently? Â
- How many homes have you sold in the last 3 months?Â Â Evaluate these two answers. If the agent has 50 listings but only sold 5 in the last 90 days you should stick a red flag on that. Â Some agents who carry high inventory have buyer agents to help with showings and sales and will have a better listing to sale ratio in New Port Richey Florida. Â That is a great follow up question. Â "Do you have a buyers agent on your team?" Â Don't discount agents who work alone and have 8-12 listings and sell 5-7 homes in 90 days. Â That is a great turnover rate for an agent working alone. Â The reality is that agents who work alone can only sell 24-36 listings a year. Â There just isn't time to be able to do more. Â
- How will you market my home outside of the mls?Â Â Your buyers are all over the internet. Your agent shouldÂ make sure that these buyers are seeing your home. Â Ask them if they have aÂ YouTube channel. Â If they do ask to see it on their tablet if they have one. Â **If the agent you are interviewing has a tablet and does not use it during their listing appointment...you might want to make a mental note of that and ask how Tech Savvy they are.** Â Ask to see their virtual tours and which websites they utilize in their marketing. Â
- Do you also represent buyers?Â Â Hiring an agent who also works for buyers is very smart. Â Agents who work with buyers know what buyers look at when viewing homes. Â We have first hand knowledge of what buyers say and how they act when seeing homes. Â Hiring an agent who works with Sellers and Buyers puts you in a better position when selling your home.
During your interview make a mental note of the following things:
Did the agent take notes during the interview? Â Did the agent LISTEN to your needs? Â Did the agent give you clear andÂ concise answers? Â Was the agent willing to accommodate your needs?
Finally, compare the agents presentations. Keep in mind that you are hiring this person to advertise and market your home. Â The agents presentation is their way of marketing their services to you. Â Did they make a stellar impression in their marketing of themselves? Â
