Whether you are selling your family home or an investment property, finding and choosing an agent is a big decision. To ensure that you appoint the best agent to sell your property it is important to do your research before making a final decision. 

 

 

Do your Research

Take note of which agents have sold properties in your local area. Look at the agent’s results, making sure you look at properties the agent has sold recently. Look for the hard facts, sale prices, days on market etc.

Get Out and About

Visit home opens to see how well your potential agent communicates with possible buyers. This is a great opportunity to see how agents present the house and themselves.

Ask for Referrals

One of the best ways of choosing an agent to sell your home is to get a referral from someone you trust. Also, don’t be afraid to ask agents for references. Agents that are proud of their reputation will put you in contact with previous clients.

Create Your Shortlist

Narrow down your list to two or three agents and meet with them personally for an appraisal. The highest valuation is not necessarily the best, as an unrealistically priced house can make it difficult to sell.

Avoid Choosing an Agent Based on Their Commission Rate

An agent, who quickly negotiates their own fee, may not be the skilled negotiator you are looking for to represent the sale of your home.

Discuss Marketing Options

A reputable agent adopts a solid marketing plan that reaches the right buyers for your property. A good agent should be able to tailor a method and marketing campaign to suit the sellers’s situation.

Ask Lots of Questions

Make a list of concerns or questions you want answered. A good agent will address your concerns and make you feel comfortable.

Feedback

Your agent should keep you updated throughout the sales process, such as regular communication and weekly property reports which summarises your property views and any feedback received.

Check the Small Print

Once you’ve selected your agent, read the terms carefully and if you are unsure of any aspect - ask!
