5 Sure Ways to Choose a Realtor®

If you're planning on moving this year, you'll need some help in selling your home. Here are some suggestions on finding the best Realtor® in your community to assist in marketing and selling your home:

  1. Choose your Realtor® with as much as care as you would a lawyer or doctor. Friends, neighbors and co-workers are often good sources for referrals. Try to find out as much as possible about their home buying or selling experience. What kind of service did they receive? Would they choose this Realtor® again?

  2. Attend open houses to observe sales associates in action. How familiar were they with the property? Did they show the home in a professional manner?

  3. Look for sold signs in your neighborhood. A Realtor® with a successful track record deserves consideration.

  4. Talk to real estate agents who have experience selling homes in the same price range as yours. You can get leads by reading the real estate ads in your local newspaper.

  5. Target local real estate companies. Realtors® who work your area are best equipped to answers questions about schools, businesses, places of worship and other services of interest to prospective buyers.
