Questions A Seller Should Ask Agents Prior To Making Their Agent Selection

  1. What are your company's resources, support staff and network affiliation?

  2. What is your company's history and track record in helping sellers? (ex: How many sellers did your company serve last year?)

  3. What checklists and systems does the agent have to help you, the seller, stay on track?

  4. Does the agent have information to help buyers find a lender, including "Home Loan Application Checklist" and "General Questions To Ask Every Lender"?

  5. Is the agent offering you a choice between customer and client level service?

  6. Is the agent offering traditional level service only or do they have an upgraded home marketing system?

  7. Does your agent appear trustworthy, caring and committed to helping you reach your goals?

  8. How many price adjustments do they average with their other listings before the property is sold? They may give other sellers higher-than-market prices to get the listing, then after that need to adjust the price down to effectively market the property.
