Spotlight on Choosing a Listing Agent

real estate, southlake agentA listing agent is a real estate agent who handles the job of selling your property. Before you put your property for sale near Southlake on the market with an agent, ask the right questions to make sure you are hiring the person best suited to sell your home.

Start by asking your listing agent about other properties for sale he or she has handled. An agent with a strong track record of selling homes in your area in your price range is better equipped to do the job than someone less experienced. Ask about marketing strategies so you know how the agent plans to let buyers know that you have a house for sale. Selling a home usually requires some lifestyle adjustments, so ask the agent what he or she needs from you. Lastly, don’t forget to ask about listing fees and commissions. Although not always, there may some flexibility in the commission rate that you can negotiate.
