You Don't Want to Hear This from Your Listing Agent | MyKCM

You’ve decided to sell your house. You begin to interview potential real estate agents to help you through the process. You need someone you trust enough to:

  • Set the market value on possibly the largest asset your family owns (your home)

  • Set the time schedule for the successful liquidation of that asset

  • Set the fee for the services required to liquidate that asset

An agent must be concerned first and foremost with you and your family to garner that degree of trust. Make sure this is the case.

Be careful if the agent you are interviewing begins the interview by:

  • Bragging about their success

  • Bragging about their company’s success

An agent’s success and the success of their company can be important considerations when deciding on the right real estate professional to represent you in the sale of your house. However, you first need to know that they care about what you need and what you expect from the sale. If the agent is not interested in first establishing your needs, how successful they may seem is much less important.

Look for someone with the heart of a teacher’ who comes in prepared to explain the current real estate market to you, and is patient enough to take the time to show you how it may impact the sale of your home; not someone only interested in trying to sell you on how great they are.  

Recently, the national online auction site, Everything But the House (#EBTH) featured the CLEliving.com team on a webinar for agents and home sellers on the Five Pre-Listing Mistakes All Sellers and Their Agents Should Avoid, and the recording can be found here.  Learn how to interview agents and prepare your property to see for more in a shorter period of time, maximizing your equity.  

You have many agents from which to choose. Pick someone who truly cares.
