How To Teach REAL ESTATE AGENT Better Than Anyone Else
If you do NOT read this report you’ll almost certainly lose thousands when you sell your home…
Home sellers don’t know how exactly to spot a good agent
This is understandable when you consider that you will only trade one or two properties in your lifetime. Your home is probably your biggest asset. So, be careful whom you decide to sell it; one slip-up from an agent will wipe thousands off your value terra hill.
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 the house worth?”. While these questions are essential, they should only be asked after the agent has told you what they’ll do for you personally and how they’ll get you the best price.
. This report can be your guide to hiring a real estate agent. I’m going to demonstrate how to spot and select the best agent to market your home. After all, I believe there’s no one better to sell your home than a highly skilled agent. The problem is that highly skilled agents are difficult to find.
WARNING! Don’t accept second best. Too many sellers make the error of picking the ‘best of a negative bunch’. You will be better off without an agent
Check out your agent
It is a sad fact, but lots of people don’t check-out their agent until after they have signed using them – by then it’s too late. Once you sign you’re stuck; you will be locked into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.
The questions and information in this report will give you the knowledge you have to keep the power if you are selling a house. After you sign you lose your power.
Agents love to say all of them are different but basic research will prove most are exactly the same. It is the ‘cookie cutter’ approach when it comes to selling your house – every property comes the same way.
What to look for when choosing an agent
In 2006 Neil Jenman (my father) was asked to provide a summary of questions, comments, and hints to greatly help home sellers choose a realtor for a TV show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. Over the last few years I have given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains a lot of the questions and comments in his original guide.
What does an excellent agent look like?
Most agents will undoubtedly be well dressed, on time, and prepared. However the best real estate agents will 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 house should rarely be hired. After all, if advertising was the only real reason your house sold why do you need a real estate agent?
Questions are the answer
Sometimes the answer to one good question will provide you with the confidence you have to hire the best agent to market your home. Good questions do the effort for you. Before you jump in and begin grilling real estate agents, have a step back.
Put your home buyer shoes on. And start with a mystery shop…
Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the indegent agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to come back buyer’s calls? Start with an email. Approximately half of most buyer enquiry arrives via email.
If you send out 10 emails to 10 local real estate agents, I can almost guarantee that you’ll not receive 10 replies. If only 5 reply, you then have just saved yourself needing to interview 5 agents. Include your contact number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a standard response? 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.
