Hi Granfran,

I can email a comparative market analysis and if you would like to move from there I can come to your home and we can discuss what similar houses have recently sold near yours in similar condition.

Assist 2 Sell is a full service Company that simplyy charges less. $2995 as opposed to a common 6%.

It just takes a few minutes to complete a market analysis. This is the best time of year to list your home and if you price it right you may just sell it to one of the many buyers that are actively searching to find a home before the First Time Home Buyers Tax Credit deadline.

Good luck to you and I hope the sale of your home is a smooth process.
Sincerely,
Julie Broderick

To further answer your question, ideally you should interview 3-4 Realtors. Be advised that the Realtor who gives you the highest price is not necessarily the one to choose. Key is pricing your home correctly from the start and the comparison properties, days on market, price reductions etc. should give you a good idea where your home should be priced.

Thanks for expanding on your initial question.
As stated here, contact a Realtor as your first step.
On my website, there are several reports that
give you ideas on what steps you need to do.
I also have some testimonials there
and I'd be glad to provide references.
My clients and customers have given their
permission to have propspective clients
contact them.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Your best bet is to have several agents come to your home, see it, and return with a price analysis. This will give you the opportunity to interview them and get the information you need. Once done, you will be prepared to move forward if/when you decide to do so.

And do interview agents, I can't tell you how many people walk into real estate offices and end up "assigned" to the agent who is answering the phones - we call it opportunity time and sit there for just that reason, but that agent may be experienced or not. You owe it to yourself to work with a great agent - if you do walk in to an office, by all means engage with that person, but only commit to including them among those you interview.

When I see an agent that has had their license for 2 months "get lucky" on the desk and list a home for sale -my head explodes... Great for the agent, but unfortunate for the seller.

Interview - consider 2-3 agents, and this pricing exercise is an excellent starting point to evaluate potential listing agents. If they struggle through this piece, run. And don't be lured by a price that doesn't pass the "sniff" test, ie, is too high. The practice of "buying business" is another thing that will slow you down and cost you money. You are looking for an agent that has the knowledge, analytic skills and frankly, courage, to give you a realistic assessment of your home's value.

Best,
Jeanne

Granfran,

Below are two links. The first is to a blog on choosing a Realtor, and the second is on doing a FSBO. Both have info on arriving at a listing price that hinge upon getting CMAs from Realtors. The key obviously would be not to not rely on just one, but probably getting about four before coming to a decision. Good luck .
