Fast-Track Your REAL ESTATE AGENT

If you do NOT read this report you will almost certainly lose thousands of dollars when you sell your home…

Home sellers don’t know how exactly to spot a good real estate agent

This is understandable when you consider that you will only buy and sell a couple of properties in your lifetime. Your property is probably your biggest asset. So, be careful whom you decide to sell it; one slip-up from a realtor will wipe thousands off your value.

Ask the right questions

Many home sellers ask the incorrect questions when they interview an agent. They ask questions such as for example “How much do you charge?” or “What’s the house worth?”. While these questions are important, they ought to 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 an agent. I’m going to show you how to spot and choose the best agent to market your home. After all, I believe there’s no one easier to sell your home than a highly skilled agent. The problem is that very skilled agents are difficult to find.

WARNING! Don’t settle for second best. Too many sellers make the error of picking the ‘best of a bad bunch’. estate agents You could be better off lacking any agent

Check out your agent

It is a sad fact, but lots of people don’t check-out their agent until once they have signed using them – by then it’s too late. Once you sign you’re stuck; you could be locked into a ‘minimum 90 day’ contract.

The questions and information in this report offers you the knowledge you must keep the power when you’re selling a house. Once 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’s the ‘cookie cutter’ approach in terms of selling your home – every property comes the same way.

What to look for when choosing an agent

In 2006 Neil Jenman (my Dad) was asked to provide a summary of questions, comments, and hints to help home sellers choose an agent for a Television show he was hosting. He called his set of questions and comments, GUIDE TO GRILLING AGENTS. During the last few years I’ve given the guide to many home sellers. This report contains most of the questions and comments in his original guide.

What does a good 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 ask for money to advertise your house should rarely be hired. In the end, if advertising was the only real reason your house sold why do you want a real estate agent?

Questions are the answer

Sometimes the answer to one good question provides you with the confidence you need to hire the best agent to market your house. Good questions do the hard work for you. Before you jump in and begin grilling real estate agents, have a step back.

Put your home buyer shoes on. And begin with a mystery shop…

MYSTERY SHOP

Department stores do it, why shouldn’t you? Utilize the ‘process of elimination’ to weed out the poor agents. Why bother interviewing a real estate agent who doesn’t bother to return buyer’s calls? Start with a contact. Approximately half of all buyer enquiry arrives via email.

If you distribute 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 phone number in your email. Do they call you back? Or do they just email a standard response? A realtor who follows up with a call has a much better chance of ‘closing a sale’ than a realtor who sends a typical reply.
